Mulligans Sports Bar and Grill in San Clemente is a throwback to the times where places called "pool halls” existed, in the days before higher-end establishments opened and became places to be seen, rather than places to, you know, actually shoot pool. Here, you can slap down some quarters, drink American beer that didn't have a stupid name on the label, and concentrate on the recreation at hand—kicking your buddy's ass in a game of billiards. Sure, it's in a rather dark corner of San Clemente, and those with lesser constitutions for such things give it poor reviews on Yelp, but that's exactly what a pool hall and bar should be—just dangerous enough to keep the cool people out. And for bonus points, there aren't any bro dudes with mixed-martial-arts tank tops scowling at everyone. Bonus points: the hamburgers and sandwiches here are cheap and not too bad.
