Paul's Cocktails, located near the Orange traffic circle, opens at 6 a.m.--perhaps so nearby Chapman University students can have a drink to take the edge off when cramming for finals. There is no happy hour at Paul's, but drinks are fairly cheap, with most draft beers starting at less than $4. The full bar hosts a dozen draft beers, as well as a wide array of bottled and canned brews. Paul's also offers an outdoor patio area with three pool tables, a dart board and a second bar for busy nights. The bartenders, while friendly, are also known for skipping what they consider to be bad songs that are chosen on the jukebox, so choose wisely.
