Village Inn (or, as locals call it, the VI) is a must-see if you find yourself on Balboa Island. With a convenient corner location within walking distance of any number of island shops, this bar is known for its heavy pours and bottomless mimosas. It houses a large full bar split into two separate rooms and offers daily happy-hour specials, live music and several TVs beaming any number of sporting events. If you consider pool a sport, you're in luck because they have a table here.
