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.
Schooner at Sunset

Schooner at Sunset

Don't let the nautical theme fool you, there will be no stale grog served here. Rather you can choose from a sizable offering of craft brews and signature cocktails.

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.

  • Avalon Bar

    Avalon Bar

    820 W. 19th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-515-4650 A dive bar in all respects, Avalon Bar manages to fit a little classiness into its hole-in-the-wall proportions. Those of you familiar with this local dive already know at least two major details: 1. Contrary to what the kitschy, light bulb-lined arrow pointing down at the bar's entrance may lead you to believe, this place is no disco. 2. This establishment doesn't serve hard liquor, so you can leave any hope of a vodka and Red Bull at the door. That said, the less-than-dim lighting, hanging lanterns, and beautifully back-lit bar make this place awesome for intimate meetings and the occasional live show.

  • Black Knight

    1870 Harbor Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627

  • The Boulevard

    The Boulevard

    1824 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-515-0700 Upscale, yet affordable bar located on Newport Blvd at Harbor in Costa Mesa. Regularly rotates 20 craft beers on tap and has a great selection of bottled beers, wines and specialty martinis (using our house-made infused spirits and fresh squeezed juices and mixers). Open 365 days a year from 3pm until 2am, with an amazing "Buy One, Get One" Happy Hour special M-F from 3-6pm on all drinks, glasses of wine and select cocktails.

  • The Butterfly Lounge

    The Butterfly Lounge

    719 W. 19th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-642-2243 Located in a Costa Mesa industrial park that also houses Jugos Acapulco and Gloria's Mexican Food, Butterfly Lounge is California’s first size-acceptance club, and still one of the precious few around in Southern California. Mainly, it's a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman) club, but the less-Rubenesque are welcome, too. There isn’t much in terms of food other than eye candy, but the drinks are great and the women get much love from all the people who go—and there are many people who go. On any Saturday night, you'll find several big-bootied honeys gyrating on the small, wooden dance floor. On one visit, when the DJ switched from Naughty By Nature's "O.P.P." to Gwen Stefani's "Harajuku Girls," streamers and balloons filled the club. Each Saturday, there's an ass-shaking contest. Whether you're a BBW, a chubby chaser or a scrawny Sally, the $10 cover charge is well worth the good music, fun atmosphere and lively partiers. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Center Club

    650 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa, CA 92626

  • Commissary Lounge

    Commissary Lounge

    2968 Randolph Ave. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-557-1861 Located in the Lab of Costa Mesa, the Commissary Lounge is easy to miss with the untrained eye. The almost hidden entrance can be located at the back of the Lab and once found, leads you to a sleekly styled watering hole for people from all walks of life. Not to be mistaken for the hipster hang-out it could so easy be, Commissary manages to draw an eclectic mix of patrons that changes drastically from one night to the next. Part of this may be due to the fact that each night features a different type of music. Like the Avalon Bar, this establishment operates on a limited beer and wine liquor license, so if you're looking for hard liquor, you had better move along. If you're interested in a tasteful hangout with an interesting ambiance and mix of people, then this is the place to be. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Corner Office

    Corner Office

    580 Anton Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-979-9922 To say there are a lot of TVs at Corner Office would be an understatement: Affixed to the walls are 15 flat-screens accompanied by eight projection screens as well as individual TVs linked to the bar's satellite feed at the end of every booth in the room. The joint is decorated like a sports bar, with NFL helmets lining the walls, jerseys hanging from the ceiling and beer signs covering every other available inch of wall space. The bar features four liquor-dispensing cold taps, serving up Jägermeister, two types of tequila, whiskey and vodka. They also feature a full liquor selection, a minimal variety of house wines and 12 beers on tap (including Pabst Blue Ribbon, available for the ironic beer drinker). Happy hour is Monday through Friday, 4 to 7 p.m., with domestic draft pints, house wines and well drinks for $3.50. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Costa Mesa Country Club

    Costa Mesa Country Club

    1701 Golf Course Drive Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    714-540-7500 The Costa Mesa Country Club in—where else?—Costa Mesa provides a great experience, with just about everything you'll need to eat up the weekend. Two full courses, the Mesa Linda and the Los Lagos, have weekday rates from 20 bucks (weekends from $30), plus discounts for fogies and kiddies. There's a driving range, hunky golf pros, daily tournament play and, of course, a full bar for that little drinkie-poo at the 19th hole. This bar also has surprisingly decent food, mostly of an Americana bent but in large platters that’ll feed your foursome. So even if you're a terrible golfer with hand-me-down clubs who couldn't get on a top-notch course even if you could afford it, you can still find total enlightenment on the links of Costa Mesa. Ah, Caddyshack: the sole connection for many of us commoners to the greatest game ever played. But it ain't gotta be that way. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Detroit Bar

    Detroit Bar

    843 W. 19th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-642-0600 Dressed up in a mixture of mod and art deco fixtures decor, it's pretty apparent that Detroit Bar is a slice of the Memphis Group pie. The intimate bar/venue not only serves as a must-play venue for all up-and-coming Orange County bands, but also hosts a slew of well-established artists blowing through town. You can experience everything from the likes of Elliott Smith (RIP) to Stereolab at this local hot spot. The crowd is skewed young and hip, but not so much that you feel overwhelmed by snooty scenesters. Drinks are strong and the best of rock, indie rock, soul and more are played nightly by impeccable DJs. Hip-hop/dance and karaoke nights are also quite popular. Whether you're visiting for the bands, drinks, pool table or consistently awesome music, Detroit's laid-back atmosphere makes it one of the best hangouts in Orange County.

  • Durty Nelly

    Durty Nelly's

    2915 Red Hill Ave. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-957-1951 Better known as a house of karaoke, a place to catch Premier League matches and a bar than an Irish pub, Durty Nelly's is worth the drive for its greasy, crunchy grilled cheese. It's also a great place for the many office drones who work nearby. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • El Parral Night Club

    845 Baker St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626

  • Eye Candy Bikini Bar

    Eye Candy Bikini Bar

    1562 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-548-6984 As the name implies, the main draw of this inconspicuous establishment near the beach is the scantily dressed waitstaff. Bikini-clad women serve up booze while patrons watch sports on the flat-screens scattered around the bar. The ladies of Eye Candy will join you on the leopard-print couches and at the pool tables-and one performs a pole dance during halftime of every Monday Night Football game. Happy-hour specials are backed by daily drink specials, with domestic and imported draft beers ranging from $3 to $5, depending on the night. A few arcade games are tucked into the back corner near an exit leading to the outdoor patio, and the restrooms are wallpapered with pages ripped from Playboy magazines spanning the past decade.

  • Garf

    Garf's Sports Lounge

    3046 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-435-4070 As sports bars go, Garf's is one of Costa Mesa's best. Not the flashiest or the most state-of-the-art—it's just a big space, full of locals, and pretty cocktail waitresses. The bar also features four pool tables and too many flat-screens TVs to count (okay, I'll count: more than 20). The full bar serves up stiff drinks in addition to an assortment of bottled brews including Coors, Rolling Rock, Modelo and Bud Light. There's an enclosed smoking patio equipped with a few large tables and more flat screens for those jonesing from a nicotine fix. Happy hour specials are every day between 4 and 7 p.m. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Goat Hill Tavern

    The Goat Hill Tavern

    1830 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-548-8428 The legendary Goat Hill Tavern is everything it has been touted to be by its legions of loyal patrons: a laid-back bar with 132 beers on tap. The ceiling is a clutter with vintage road signs, moose antlers, bicycles and car bodies. Meanwhile, the floor is littered with peanut shells. A whiteboard above the bar lists the beers available in dense writing and can either be daunting to an amateur suds-sipper or a welcome challenge to an enthusiast. Labels include standard domestics such as Coors and Shock Top to more exotic brands such as Lean To IPA, Erdinger Hef and Fire Rock Pale Ale. The service is as quick as can be expected in such a crowded bar, but thankfully, the cocktails are served with a heavy hand. Recreational distractions include a partially open-air patio, where you can play a round of pool or shuffleboard. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Gods And Heros

    2991 Randolph St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626

  • Habana


    2930 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    714-556-0176 This restaurant features your standard Cuban fare-everything from succulent mango pulled pork to plantain-crusted chicken sandwiches-and more gourmet offerings such as osso bucco, but the best stuff on the menu are the drinks. Whether you prefer a white sangria or a mojito or a crisp Stella Artois from the fully stocked bar inside, there's no better place to drain them than Habana's outdoor patio. It's tastefully shaded from the afternoon sun by market umbrellas and the surrounding drought-resistant California-native plants, offering a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of corporate Orange County. It's also a perfect spot to share a nightcap with a friend or cozy up with an after-dinner cappuccino by candlelight-when the skies darken, your table bathes in the light of hundreds of them.

  • The Harp Inn

    The Harp Inn

    130 E. 17th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-646-8855 The Harp Inn touts itself as "the most authentic Irish pub in Costa Mesa." Such claims are so often ballast, but the Irish-accented bartender, dark- green walls, European soccer games playing on the TVs, and an emphasis on Guiness and whiskey back the claims the Harp Inn makes. The three-sided bar sits near the back of the room and showcases a wide variety of whiskeys and other liquors. There are 18 beers on tap including Newcastle, Smithwicks, Stella and Boddingtons. All are served in 20 oz. glasses, because as the bar boasts, size matters. There is also a small selection of wines and champagnes. A single dartboard sits in the back, and next to the front door is a small stage that regularly hosts live bands Thursdays through Sundays. The Harp Inn features a large outdoor patio that looks out onto the relative seclusion of its location on an odd corner on 17th Street. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Hashigo Korean Kitchen

    Hashigo Korean Kitchen

    3033 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-557-4911 A great spot to grab a drink during your lunch break. While Korean food is the main event here, Hashigo is no slouch when it comes to booze. Here they serve up an impressive array of imported bottled beers and as well as sakes. Have a Heineken, or be a little adventurous and try a Hite lager. The number one selling brew in Korea, it features a sweeter taste and less head than most westerners are used to. Goes down smooth. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Huddle

    The Huddle

    741 Baker St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626

    That unique blend of dive bar, sports bar and pseudo-hipster hangout, the Huddle is dimly lit, with surf boards hanging from the ceiling and a full complement of hard liquors. A rarity in the economically priced bar scene, the bar serves single-barrel whiskey; while you'll no doubt enjoy its one-of-a kind flavor, it'll cost you $8 per shot. If you don't have that kind of dough, try the PBR on tap. From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., it's $2 a pint; after that, it jumps up to $2.50. There are also several pool tables and video games, including the über-addictive golf game Golden Tee. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Kitsch Bar

    Kitsch Bar

    891 Baker St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-546-8580 Nestled away in a Costa Mesa strip mall, Kitsch Bar is so fucking posh that they only need a sign printed in what seems to be 14 pt font. But once you locate the front door (look left!), you'll discover a swank lounge with dramatic lighting, mod-style seats, and cheeky decor featuring '70s Playboys or Bob's Big Boy dolls lining the walls. DJs spin nightly; everything from disco punk to downtempo and chill. The dress code is reasonable (no shorts or sandals), but you might want to scale it up to avoid the hipster hairy eyeball.

  • La Cave

    La Cave

    1695 Irvine Ave. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
    949-646-7944 Open since 1962 (!), La Cave continues to be the county's place for a touch of romance and a hunk of meat. Their steaks, fine slabs of beef burnt or bloodied to your liking and as big as a school desktop, fill the innards. Their music-cheesy lounge, stellar jazz-fills the soul. And the ambiance will get you lucky afterward. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • The Little Knight

    The Little Knight

    436 E. 17th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627

    The Little Knight is a locals-heavy spot, no doubt as a result of its seclusion. If you're driving down East 17th street and you happen to blink, you will miss it. The entrance, located around the back of the building opens to an interior that, depending on how you look at it, is either cozy or cramped. But for a dive bar, this spot has plenty of charm. The red-painted plaster walls are complemented by the dark Romanesque columns of the liquor shelves and the vintage carpet is adorned with flowery prints. The fully-stocked bar features eight beers on tap including Bass, Guinness and Widmer Hef and Stella. The back of the room features a pool table and several flat-screen TVs adorn the walls.

  • Onotria Wine Bar

    Onotria Wine Bar

    2831 Bristol St. Costa Mesa, CA 92626
    714-641-5952 Onotria Wine Bar represents a distinctive sipping experience in OC: It's a quiet place to get a drink. And with a 40-page wine list, you're ensured the drink you're thirsting for. Located along Bristol Avenue, which bustles with auto traffic, the garden in front of the ivy-covered building is lushly adorned with authentic grape vines. Inside, the pine-plank ceiling is pitched high and hosts a couple of slowly twirling fans. A small doorway in the main room's back wall reveals a small bar area. Here the thirsty patron can enjoy a nice Pinot, or a cocktail from the full bar in addition to the standard bottled domestics-Budweiser, Coors and Sam Adams.
