Best Rock Club Orange County 2013 - DiPiazza's
5205 E. Pacific Coast Highway
Long Beach, CA 90804
With its low lighting, red booths, lowbrow band artwork, tiny dance floor, smoking patio squished onto the front sidewalk and tiny stage, this battle axe doesn't seem the kind of place that would have a good sound—but given its size and C-shaped layout, it's pretty great. Chris the Sound Guy is there most nights and knows when to keep the sound to a background buzz or move the dial to 11. Did we mention you can also get a great pizza?
