    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. More >>

    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. More >>

    The Observatory

    714-957-0600

    http://www.observatoryoc.com If you visited the Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana a couple years ago, you would've been met by cover bands, one-hit wonders or closed doors. It had its moments, of course, but those moments were rare thanks to a lengthy closure and lackluster booking. Enter Jon Reiser, former partner and booker for Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa. Reiser purchased the venue and made several significant changes: booked popular acts, upgraded the sound system, added a smaller venue-in-a-venue called the Constellation Room. The Observatory now hosts popular acts such as Method Man , GWAR, Tiesto, Waka Flocka Flame and many, many more. That also includes residencies from local acts. Selling out shows is now a habit for this place. Most of all, it provides a valuable service to the whole county by bringing in acts we could usually only see by driving to Los Angeles. Oh, and it even—gasp!—makes Angelenos cross the Orange Curtain for a show. More >>

    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.

    The Yost Theater

    307 N. Spurgeon St. Santa Ana, CA 92701
    888-862-9573

    http://www.yosttheater.com The Yost Theater is a concert venue in Santa Ana. Housed in a vintage movie house, the Yost Theater is looking to compete with big OC music venues such as Disney's House of Blues. Gorgeously appointed with massive plush drapes, ornate lanterns, blue ceiling tiles and a state of the art sound system, there might be some nervous grumbling in the House of Mouse. They have a lot of EDM shows, but the occasional indie darling will sneak in—and even some Spanish-language stuff. Co-operated by former Koo's Cafe owner Dennis Lluy, The Yost serves a large selection of draft beers and features a full bar -- perfect for getting loose in front of the massive stage. We won’t talk about its historic role as the center of Latino life in Southern California and its subsequent thievery twice from the Latinos who loved it because it’s simply too painful—but now you know.
