Best Dive Bar Orange County 2011 - The Olive Pit
For those who want to escape the visibility of regular dive bars, Orange's Olive Pit is for you. Turn off Lincoln Avenue, and head down a steep street; around the corner lies the most secluded dive in these here parts, nestled into the side of a concrete hill, hobbit-hole-like. At the Olive Pit, they have cheap beer, pool tables, arcade games, year-round Christmas lights, doll-faced bartenders, peanuts in a vending machine and fried snacks available when the cook decides to show up. Perfect for those who crave a drink in a dark, super-awesome subterranean kind of place.
