Best Neighborhood Bar, Long Beach - 2013
Good ol' Reno Room—so dark on the inside it's easy to lose hours of daylight into frosty cold beers and cheap drinks made with heavy pours. This charming dive is attached to a Mexican restaurant, Coco Renos, so you can order loaded nachos from the bar. And there's more! Reno Room has pool tables in the back, a jukebox up front, the chillest bouncers in town and the loveliest bartenders. Some call Reno "the tar pits" because of its ability to suck you into its inky cover—but if there's anywhere we want to waste away the day, it's here.
