Sandpiper Lounge

1183 S. Pacific Coast Highway Laguna Beach, CA 92651 | Laguna Beach | 949-494-4694

Location Description:

Sandpiper Lounge in Laguna Beach is a legendary dive bar in coastal Orange County. How legendary? Esquire once named them one of the top dive bars in America, writing "If it's a dive, it's Christ-this-place-is-a-dive dive. If it's an Irish pub, it's not an 'Irish' pub. If it's a cocktail lounge, it's got some Tanqueray Ten and a bottle of good rye somewhere." This dive on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway has been a hippie watering hole since the 1960s. Locals call it the “Dirty Bird.” Live music, plenty of beer, an occasional green (but not pine) scent floating through the air and fabulously unpretentious decor make it one of the most welcoming pubs in the county. Go there in the early afternoon, when the tourists are still around and mingling with the locals who’ll close the place down late into the morning, with more than a few tourists in tow.
