Best Gay Bar Orange County 2009 - The Falcon
Readers' Choice: The Tin Lizzie
This is where you go when you want a no-fuss gay beer. (You know, pink, foamy, comes with an umbrella, condoms and free hot lube. Kidding.) But the little bar on the corner of Broadway and Falcon along the quaint Alamitos Beach Corridor is indeed the spot where you go when you want gay, spirited and cozy with your beer. The crowd at the Falcon is always sweet, just flirty enough and Long Beach sexy (tattoos, drag, boots, cigarettes). It's also mixed: boy, girl, trans, straight, whatever. No one cares, and all dance to the wild VJs just the same. We like this. It's what makes the Falcon not just a great gay bar, but also a great neighborhood bar.
