Take a stroll among the many watering holes in Downtown Fullerton on a Friday night and you'll be hard-pressed to find a bar with more rock & roll style than the Slidebar Cafe. Yes, it features two rooms where suicide-girl style bartendresses serve up cocktails along with imported and domestic draft beer. This is also one of the few downtown establishments presenting top-notch local and national rock acts of the punk, ska and hardcore variety. The walls of the bar are decked out with autographed rock memorabilia and lined with flat screen TVs.Be sure to check out the halls lined with pics taken by rock photographer Lisa Johnson. Images include No Doubt's Gwen Stefani with Warren Fitzgerald of the Vandals. Finer pints of beer, including Shock Top and Newcastle, cost $6, with lower-shelf fare such as Bud Light running $5. Happy hour is every day 3 p.m.-6 p.m. except Saturday. Sunday happy hour is 3 p.m.-9 p.m. and features half off draft beers and well drinks.
