Balboa Saloon is a bar in Newport Beach. Social Distortion's late guitar player Dennis Danell used to drink here. So did Madness front man Graham "Suggs" McPherson whenever he was in town. The INXS video for "The Devil Inside"--a cheesy, smoke-filled '80s romp--was even filmed inside these walls. Newbies will be offered complimentary sips from a pitcher filled with a Frankenstein concoction of domestic beers called a "Balboa Sunday," the foamy remnants of early-evening tap inspectios.
