Readers' Choice: Detroit Bar
The guy at the door must just be curious when he marks down which band you're there to see because this laid-back bar has a reputation as one of the county's most artist-friendly. Certain establishments demand that the average acoustic strummer offer his or her first child as a deposit in case the crowd doesn't pack the bar stools, but that's not the case here. And for patrons, there's plenty to like about the Gypsy Lounge: couches, decent beer selection and tasteful paintings of nekkid ladies. Plus, there's always the chance you might find your soon-to-be-favorite roots-rocking OC guitar outfit playing here on a weeknight, fighting the good fight against silence in South County shopping centers.
