Nadine's Irish Mist

Nadine's Irish Mist

The live bands and karaoke nights hosted at Nadine's usually lay waste to Sunset Beach's sleepy reputation. But it's all in good fun at this rocking Irish pub.

Crow's Cocktail's

Yes this place holds about 50, but don't worry, handsome mirrors lend this joint the illusion of size. Enjoy a full bar, brews on tap and the eloquence of dive chic.

    Jasper's Restaurant

    3672 S. Bristol St. Santa Ana, CA 92704
    714-751-4604

    http://Jasper's Restaurant (3672 S. Bristol) Jasper's is a bar in Santa Ana. The décor hints at a previous life as a Western saloon, with wood paneling and ceiling, stained-glass chandeliers, and cowboy art hanging on the walls seemingly ordered after watching a Time Life infomercial. A digital jukebox usually blasts music of someone's longed-for youth, from "Promises" by Guns N' Roses to "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire (I threw in "Maggie May" and "Okie From Muskogee" just for the hell of it). A large stage and dance floor stands empty. Weekends, though, bring in everything from metal shows to hip-hop nights and more. Read more about Jasper's Restaurant >>

    Javier's Cantina and Grill

    7832 E. Coast Highway Newport Beach, CA 92657
    949-494-1239

    http://www.javiers-cantina.com Located directly across from the ocean, Javier's newest location is more opulent than ever. Walking into Javier's Cantina-through palm trees and fire-is like walking into another land. The dimly lit bar has a club vibe; the metal tree sculpture holding various tequilas over the bar is worth the trip in just to ogle. Of course, dining at a place like this can be pricey, but if you get to Javier's early, you can snag a seat on the patio and indulge in its happy hour. Read more about Javier's Cantina and Grill >>

  • Jeanie

    Jeanie's Dirty Martini

    4360 Lincoln Ave. Cypress, CA 90630
    714-826-0570

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jeanies-Dirty-Martini/299410066829776 Jeanie's Dirty Martini is a bar in Cypress. The crowds congregate around the hightop bar tables ad share pitchers of beer. People hang out at one of the six high-tech dartboard stations, and or some of the pool tables (free on Sunday). There's a full bar on offer, too. Jager and Fireball are on tap, and behind the bar, there's a metal rack with 27 clips to hang up chips, which sell at a buck a bag. The "Wall of Shame" features debaucherous pictures of customers.

  • Jimmi

    Jimmi's Bar & Grill

    500 S. Raymond Ave. Fullerton, CA 92831
    714-578-0407

    http://www.jimmisbarandgrill.com/ Jimmi's Bar & Grill is a quaint little dive expressing a strong love for motor sports. The walls are a shrine to NASCAR drivers with an emphasis on the late Dale Earnhardt. The half-dozen TVs (including a large projection screen) focus on all things car-related. Jimmi's features one pool table, Golden Tee 2005, Lottery machine and an old-fashioned cigarette machine. Live music shows up on Thursdays and Sundays, and the bar can be reserved for private parties. Jimmi's serves $3.75 well drinks from its full liquor selection, though beer (draft and bottled) is limited to four domestic offerings. Interesting bit of trivia, the building complex housing Jimmi's was once home to the Fender Instruments factory. Read more about Jimmi's Bar & Grill >>

  • Jimmy Bones

    Jimmy Bones

    1815 E. Chapman Ave. Orange, CA 92867
    714-532-4920

    http://Jimmy Bones (1815 E. Chapman Ave.) The key descriptor at Jimmy Bones is "modest." The bar features a modest façade nestled in a shopping center, which gives way to a modest configuration: a simple, linear space crowded with high tables, a bar and one pool table. The draft-brew selection is, yes, modest-but also diverse, featuring labels from Budweiser and Coors to Newcastle and Guinness. The faux-brick walls are adorned with neon lights flickering the logos of California football teams and post cards of America's ballparks. The full bar offers only a small selection of hard alcohols, but the drinks are well-poured. And no matter how crowded the place gets, it maintains its friendly, unpretentious feel.

  • Joe Jost

    Joe Jost's

    2803 E. Anaheim St. Long Beach, CA 90804
    562-439-5446

    http://www.joejosts.com At Joe Jost's divey little Long Beach enclave, drinkers come for the frosty beers but stay for the pickled eggs. That's right; Jost's is locally legendary for its spicy-brined eggs, dashed with black pepper and tossed back with a handful of pretzel sticks at the bar. The eggy, slightly funky, protein-rich orbs are a throwback to the 1920s, when the bar's namesake Hungarian owner sold them by the Mason jar full to stay open during Prohibition. Thankfully, those days are long gone now, and only the pickles remain. The classic draught beer is served up near freezing in thick glass goblets, perfect for ducking the Long Beach heat while riding one of the old metal barstools. For the brave, there is a small stage in the corner where an occasional strummer plucks away at his acoustic guitar, but most everyone in the room is either taking a bite of the hot dog on rye sandwiches, swallowing another bite of pickled egg or sipping happily away at their beer in one of the oldest continually operational bars west of the Mississippi.

    Joe's Great American Bar & Grill

    4311 W. Magnolia Blvd. Burbank, CA 91505
    818-729-0805

    http://www.joesgreatbar.com Since it opened in 2005, Joe's really has been one of the San Fernando Valley's greatest bars, with live entertainment nightly and a large dance floor. The Burbank nightclub is renowned for booking top country-music performers, but rock, swing, rockabilly and blues musicians often appear on Joe's low stage, augmented by regular karaoke nights. The expansive room, decorated by a mural of famous musicians, looks even larger with mirrors lining the walls. For all of its allure as one of the Valley's leading live-music venues, Joe's Great American Bar & Grill is also a hardcore sports bar, with no less than seven television sets, including two with 100-inch screens. In-house diversions for barfly athletes include darts and a pool table. During football season, the grill opens early at 9 a.m., with breakfast available until 11 a.m. The menu features such basic bar-food staples as burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads, and appetizers like buffalo wings and potato skins. The overall mood is unpretentious, and Joe's is just as much a comforting, welcoming neighborhood bar as it is a live-music club and a sports bar. Full bar. Ages 21 & over. Free lot parking and on the street. Read more about Joe's Great American Bar & Grill >>

    Johnny's Saloon

    17428 Beach Blvd. Huntington Beach, CA 92647
    714-848-0676

    http://www.johnnyssaloon.com If you're looking for one of Orange County's premiere rockabilly hangouts, Johnny's Saloon is the swinging spot. Located in the corner of a strip mall, the front facade is adorned with a massive POW sign reminding patrons to thank a veteran for their freedom. To say the interior is dimly lit would be an understatement. The room is bathed in a low-key red glow and the walls are adorned with concert posters and punk rock graffiti. Be mindful of where you step: It gets crowded, especially on weekends. Girls and guys don their finest vintage threads and enjoy music from the jukebox that blares everything from Morrissey to Johnny Cash. The full bar serves up a wide assortment of fruity concoctions including a Lemonhead featuring vodka, fresh-squeezed lemons and (of course) Lemonheads candy sprinkled around the rim of the glass.

  • JT Schmid

    JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery

    2610 E. Katella Ave. Anaheim, CA 92806
    714-634-9200

    http://www.jtschmidsrestaurants.com From a light and flowery India Pale Ale to a deep, rich and bitter stout, JT Schmid's is a local brewer that pours its own hand-crafted beers just like others in its genre. Their house Hef is lemony and sips as refreshingly as a summer breeze. Happy Hours are the time to come and enjoy a pint in the company of friends, co-workers, or that pre-first date meet-up you'd rather not do at Starbucks. If you didn't know the place was brewery/restaurant, you'd half expect them to serve expensive steaks--the dining room is stylishly dark. The fried foods are excessively portioned, designed to keep you munching and thirsty enough to ask for more beer. Only this Tustin store offers the Happy Hour deals--something the older Anaheim store doesn't. Read more about JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery >>

  • Juliette Kitchen & Bar

    Juliette Kitchen & Bar

    1000 Bristol St N Newport Beach, CA 92660
    949-752-5854

    http://www.juliettenb.com Juliette Kitchen and Bar is in every way different from its location’s predecessor Pascal Olhats’ Tradition. Gone are the stuffy white-linen tables and claustrophobic room dividers. Everything has been stripped down to the foundation and bare wood. The chairs are unvarnished, the seats made of wicker. The whole space now feels breezy and loose. If dining at Tradition felt like wearing an overstarched suit, eating at Juliette Kitchen is the equivalent of putting on an unbuttoned beach shirt. Ask for the smoked ocean trout salad. You’ll not have a sharper, more complex plate of food involving arugula than this. The nose-tickling smokiness of the flaked fish, the cloying bent of the stewed cherries and tartness of pickled onions seem initially at odds with one another, but then, somehow, they end up in harmony.

  • Jungle Room Bar at the Rib Trader

    Jungle Room Bar at the Rib Trader

    2710 E. Chapman Ave. Orange, CA 92869
    714-744-9288

    http://www.ribtrader.com/index.html The Jungle Room lounge, like the restaurant it's attached to is unabashedly kitschy. The walls and ceilings are stacked with rows of bamboo, primitive hunting implements and the stuffed heads of zebras and a hippopotamus. But unlike tiki bars that have the look but specialize in plastic cups of domestic beer, this place mixes up some kick-ass tropical-themed cocktails. If you stop by with a large group, be sure to order a gorilla punch—vodka, curacoa and assorted juices—but order it in the deadly-sized clam shell. A sweltering amount of booze, the staff will equip you with plenty of straws so everybody can belly up to the trough. The full bar also has a small selection of draft beers including Buweiser, Bud light and Widmer Hefeweizen. Read more about Jungle Room Bar at the Rib Trader >>
