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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Constellation Room at the Observatory

    Constellation Room at the Observatory

    3503 S. Harbor Blvd. Santa Ana, CA 92704
    714-957-0600

    http://www.constellationroom.com Step right past the bar inside The Observatory and you'll notice another little venue that unites OC'ers from just about everywhere in one place. The Constellation Room, sometimes considered The Observatory's smaller, more alternative music-loving sibling, is a quaint space that welcomes up-and-coming buzz bands as well as local acts to perform for their adoring all-ages fans. While few people get the chance to sit down on one of the large leather sofas, there's plenty of standing room space to dance and mosh around to your heart's content. Plus, the start of a new month means a new monthly residency of a cool indie band with special guests each week, completely free. With so many great acts in any given week, the Constellation Room is definitely one of the best places in Orange County to catch new music. Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • 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 this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Father

    Father's Pub & Grub

    13912 Ponderosa St. Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-542-8334

    If you're mining for a good dive-bar experience, Father's in Santa Ana is a hidden gem. The tiny watering hole is rumored to have been at this spot for the past 15 years, some say as many as 50 years. It's definitely off the beaten path: Blink while driving down 17th Street and you'll miss the turn for the strip mall housing it. But once inside you'll be rewarded with friendly banter from warm-hearted barmaids and a nice collection of draft beers. The interior is unremarkable-small, dimly lit, linoleum floors, an unvarnished wooden bar top and a steer skull hanging over the bar. There are only two flat-screen TVs-this place saves the frills for its beer selection, which includes Blue Moon, Bass, Stella and Widmer Hefeweizen. Cool distractions include a solitary pool table and jukebox. A small stage at the back of the room features live bands. Go on a Wednesday afternoon when Yvonne is working the bar. She'll card you (which might be insulting or flattering-depending), but it's only so she can ask you what you want to drink by using your first name.

  • 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.

    http://www.gypsyden.com Hipster Orange County's favorite place to ogle progressive waitresses. The menu is still filled with an eclectic collection of healthy post-hippie sandwiches; and the decor is almost identical, from the earthy walls to the funky art.

    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 this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Malone

    Malone's

    604 E. Dyer Road Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-979-6000

    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 this Orange County bar or club >>

    http://www.originalmikes.com This spacious place has something for everyone: karaoke, two separate bars, an outdoor patio with live music, and a quieter dining room in which to enjoy classic American fare such as burgers, shakes and steaks. Don't place your drinks on the classic cars lest a burly bouncer yells at you! Read more about this Orange County bar or club >>

  • 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 this Orange County bar or club >>

  • Quill Lounge

    Quill Lounge

    1630 Mabury St. Santa Ana, CA 92705
    714-558-2744

    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.

    VLVT Velvet Lounge

    416 W. 4th St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    714-664-0663

    http://www.velvetoc.com VLVT Lounge is in downtown Santa Ana, and already hopping. Gay bars are still few and infuriatingly far between, so VLVT Velvet Lounge is already a beloved staple in LGBTQIOC, not just for its many themed nights, but also for its Sunday brunch. Among a sea of bottomless mimosas, a DIY Bloody Mary table and fresh-to-order omelets stand the Brunchettes, who trot out the sequins, wigs and torch songs as though they were lip-synching for their lives. Their popularity is such that VLVT schedules them for two shows—at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.—and highly recommends reservations. And every Sunday, VLVT Velvet Lounge is also home to Cherry, which touts itself as "OC's Sexiest Girls' Night." The layout of the bar definitely lends itself to that title—flashy nightclub feel with lots of space to dance, a huge patio area, an interactive text-flirting system and strong drinks that make up for the damage done to your wallet.
