There’s a reason Laguna Beach locals call this place “The Dirty Bird.” This veteran haunt, located on a cluttered stretch of tourist traps along PCH, is one of the few watering holes that leaves pretentious prices at the door. The small but mighty stage hosts low-key reggae such as local faves Rebel Rockers and World Anthem. A $5 cover gets you through the doors and surrounded by dreads, cheap rum, colorful board shorts and cougars galore.
1183 S. Coast Hwy., Laguna Beach, (949) 494-4694.
