The drink here are overpriced and the bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible. I won't go here again.
Best Neighborhood Bar/Central OC - 2009
McClure's - CLOSED
Consider McClure's the quintessential anti-hipster establishment. There's pretty much nothing the place can do to be less hip: It hosts karaoke a staggering four nights per week and cover bands on Fridays and Saturdays. The primary clientele is 35 and up. It's in Tustin. Yet all these things make it a gleeful escape from the typical bar trappings. The karaoke playlist is surprisingly deep (from Iron Maiden to Missy Elliot), the cover bands are actually fun, and you never know when you might get into a fascinating conversation with a middle-aged Russian immigrant telling you her life story. A wide variety of folks can feel at home here, as long as you don't take your boozing too seriously.
