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

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.

  • 616 Club

    616 Club

    616 E. 4th St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-836-0136

    The 616 Club is bare bones, even by dive-bar standards, but it serves its purpose. Small and dimly lit with a small bar in the center of the room, the club serves a half-dozen bottled beers and even fewer types of liquor. The wood-lined walls are adorned witth few decorations save for Bud Light posters featuring scantily clad women holding soccer balls. Most of the room's illumination comes from the lights hanging over 616's two billiard tables and from the jukebox, which features mostly Spanish rock and mariachi music. Read more about 616 Club >>

  • Benjie

    Benjie's Bamboo Lounge

    1828 N Tustin Ave Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-541-6263

    The Bamboo Lounge is a bar in Santa Ana. It hides separated from the rest of the classic Benjies in SanTana, a kitschy tiki-style bar with bamboo-lined walls and vintage tropical tablecloths--along with Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Money Pit at the Disneyland Hotel, Don the Beachcomber and 320 Main on Tuesday nights, it's one of the last of the steam-powered tiki lounges in a region that invented the genre. The crowd is almost overwhelmingly old, mostly regulars from the deli next door, and the bar is subsequently calm, the type of place where Jeopardy! screens and the answers can be heard.

  • California Girls

    California Girls

    1109 N. Harbor Blvd. Santa Ana, CA 92703
    714-554-0491

    The California Girls in Santa Ana is a full-nude strip club (the Anaheim location is topless), which means there is no alcohol served, only energy drinks, water and soda. There is a one-drink minimum and a $10 cover charge, but if you're going to California Girls, you pretty much know what you're getting into. The small stage is lit with red and blue LED lights flashing off the mirrored wall and brass pole. It's lined with a table and black-velvet seats for patrons preferring a front-row viewpoint. The VIP room houses a dozen red-velvet booths for private dances; the standard rate is $10 for alone time with one of the club's dancers, but specials are announced by the DJ randomly throughout the night.

  • The Copper Door

    The Copper Door

    225 1/2 N. Broadway Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-543-3813

    http://thecopperdoorbar.com/ Santa Ana hipster bar The Copper Door represents a new level in ironic minimalism. Lit only by the dancing flames of candles, the spartan room is elegantly outfitted with a few picnic-style tables arranged end to end, a stage and two pool tables. If you're looking for fancy cocktails, you won't find them here, just scads of fancy craft beer. Try a Doghead Fish Ale, Uinta Wyld Organic Pale Ale, or a Chimay Triple White. But beware: many of these brews are up to nine-percent alcohol and pack a punch. Depending on how ironic you want things to get, they also serve PBR. Nightly entertainment includes live music from folk, indie and blues bands including such artists as Nicole Vaughn and Jeramiah Red. Read more about The Copper Door >>

  • El Fracaso Bar

    El Fracaso Bar

    701 N. Harbor Blvd. Santa Ana, CA 92703-2756
    714-530-9074

    El Fracaso is a bar in Santa Ana. It's is a legendary bar in Mexican OC--for that name, right, but also because it's a no-drama type of place, where working men can unwind without having to worry about narcos or mayhem. The typical uniform here is a grease-, paint- or concrete-flecked T-shirt emblazoned with a company name. The cars out front in the tiny parking lot don't stray far from a pickup truck outfitted with racks that contain the tools of their owner's trade: gardening tools, wooden planks, rebar. The women bartenders lord over the room on an elevated walkway behind the bar, the easier to fetch beers from the multiple coolers and titillate the clientele with their chichis and nalgas à la Coyote Ugly. If El Fracaso ("The Failure," in Spanish) is failure, then we should all be so lucky. Read more about El Fracaso Bar >>

  • The Fling

    The Fling

    2370 N. Tustin Ave. Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-547-8972

    http://www.flingcocktaillounge.com For better or worse, this little dive is a legendary among local patrons and all that pass through it. Descriptors range from "epic" to "disastrous," but a vast majority manage to agree that if you enter the premises without a stick up your ass, it has the fantastic ability to grow on you. Open at 6 a.m., this place is overflowing with stiff liquor at dirt cheap prices. On the weekends you can catch some of the best cover bands in town, belting away to the likes of Tom Collins and Journey. But be forewarned, this place is usually crowded past capacity on weekends, so unless you dig being shoulder to shoulder with friendly (yet unfamiliar) strangers it's best to visit the Fling during less busy hours.

    Jasper's Restaurant

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

    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 >>

  • Lola Gaspar

    Lola Gaspar

    211 W. Second St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-972-1172

    http://www.lolagaspar.com Start your evening with a glass of sangria ladled from a big jug, then an order of their scorching hot bacon wrapped dates with a blue cheese filling as piercing needles. Lola Gaspar is a bar more than it’s a restaurant since it’s in a room so small it couldn’t serve as the waiting area for your local Black Angus. A baroque chandelier hangs next to a dominant wall that’s made to look like it came from a subterranean subway terminal where a thousand posters have been plastered on and hastily stripped off. Looking down at you as you eat is a creepy painting of a beautiful girl with a ghostly Haunted Mansion stare. Read more about Lola Gaspar >>

    The Olde Ship British Pub & Restaurant

    1120 W. 17th St. Santa Ana, CA 92706
    714-550-6700

    http://www.theoldeship.com One of the most authentic British pubs in Orange County, the Olde Ship sports a distinctly European atmosphere with a full menu of classic dishes including bread pudding and the best bangers and mash you'll have this side of the pond. With an interior that looks, in fact, like the inside of an old galleon and a bartender with an authentic Irish accent, this establishment is a favorite haunt for British expats and Anglophiles alike. If you're counting on grabbing dinner at this place on a Saturday night, arrive early because patrons are literally flowing out the door by seven bells. During World Cup fever, you can count on the doors being open bright and early for the morning games! Read more about The Olde Ship British Pub & Restaurant >>

  • The Playground

    The Playground

    220 E. 4th St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-560-4444

    http://www.playgrounddtsa.com At the Playground, Jason Quinn exhibits the ballsy confidence that has gotten him this far. The former Lime Truck chef scribbles on his chalkboard wall, “If you want your meat well-done, bring it with you” because he not-so-coyly refuses to do his burgers warmer than medium-rare. The now-controversial Playground burger is the bloodiest in all of OC, but also one of the greatest. The barely cooked patty is as thick as two fingers, and you don’t chew it; rather, you inhale the thing like beefy air. It shares the lightness of sushi and doesn’t feel greasy, even as the juices trickle down your forearm. That it shares a kinship with steak tartare and Ethiopian kitfo more than a Double-Double is the reason the cheese, the bun and the misplaced shreds of iceberg lettuce disappear from your peripheral vision. You focus instead on that deep-crimson core and marvel at how very good this hand-ground Wagyu beef is when eaten nearly raw. Read more about The Playground >>

  • Proof Bar

    Proof Bar

    215 N. Broadway Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-953-2660

    http://www.proofbar.com Proof Bar offers a chic, lounge atmosphere befitting an establishment in the middle of Santa Ana's über-hip Artist Village. It hosts a variety of DJs who spin an eclectic array of tunes ranging between garage and funk. The full bar serves up tasty cocktails and offers a fine selection of brews including Delirium, Stella, Heineken, Arrogant Bastard Ale as well as standard domestics like Bud light. The lounge area features a dramatic vaulted ceiling hovering 25 feet above the floor. The bar is softly lit with colored lights for ambiance and is decorated by creeping vines twisting upward from the bedrock. Read more about Proof Bar >>

  • Quill Lounge

    Quill Lounge

    1630 Mabury St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-558-2744

    http://Quill Lounge (1630 Mabury St.) The Quill is a legendary bar in Santa Ana that has been around for decades. Now that the Helm in Costa Mesa rests in Davy Jones' locker, the hipsters took over the Swinging Door, and the Fling is next, the Quill remains the last gasp of how drinking used to be in Orange County—not uppity froufrou mixologists, but a grizzled guy or gal who doesn't get fancier than a White Russian; not obnoxious EDM or too-cutesy DJs who think playing 1970s-TV-show theme songs is oh-so-awesome, but a jukebox that seems to always pull its songs from the combined KLOS and KFROG playlists; not fancy food, but a popcorn machine and a lunch menu no one seems to have ever eaten from. We'll let you in on a secret: More than a few judges and prosecutors make this their home away from home, so slide up to the bar and plead your case over the umpteenth Jameson neat.
