The Continental Room

115 W. Santa Fe Ave. Fullerton, CA 92832 | Fullerton | 714-469-1879

Location Description:

Tucked away on a tiny side street in downtown Fullerton, the Continental Room doesn't look like much from the outside, but the blah exterior masks the drop-dead sexy lounge within. The interior is reminiscent of a lush, red-lit, turn of the century boudoir. The Continental Room opened in 1925, and though it served as a simple beer bar, it's still gets the title of oldest watering hole in the city. Bands and DJs play regularly on the small circular stage in the corner of the club.
