Johnny's Saloon

17428 Beach Blvd. Huntington Beach, CA 92647 | Huntington Beach | 714-848-0676

Location Description:

If you're looking for one of Orange County's premiere rockabilly hangouts, Johnny's Saloon is the swinging spot. Located in the corner of a strip mall, the front facade is adorned with a massive POW sign reminding patrons to thank a veteran for their freedom. To say the interior is dimly lit would be an understatement. The room is bathed in a low-key red glow and the walls are adorned with concert posters and punk rock graffiti. Be mindful of where you step: It gets crowded, especially on weekends. Girls and guys don their finest vintage threads and enjoy music from the jukebox that blares everything from Morrissey to Johnny Cash. The full bar serves up a wide assortment of fruity concoctions including a Lemonhead featuring vodka, fresh-squeezed lemons and (of course) Lemonheads candy sprinkled around the rim of the glass.
