The Pike Bar & Fish Grill

1836 E. Fourth St. Long Beach, CA 90802 | Long Beach | 562-437-4453

Location Description:

Not to be confused with that taxpayer-subsidized, almost-always-barren-of-tourists monstrosity known as the Pike in Rainbow Harbor, Long Beach's the Pike is a bar and grill owned by Chris Reece, drummer for the famed SoCal punk band Social Distortion. Located on Fourth Street near the Art Theater in the town's hip vintage-boutiques district, the sea foam green walls sport a kitschy mix of nautical flotsam and punk-rock memorabilia. The jukebox rocks everything from the Misfits to Gram Parsons. Pretty cocktail waitresses serve up drinks from the full bar as well as a small selection of brews. Labels include : Pyramid Hef, Stone IPA and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
