This downtown spot has successfully separated itself from the herd of local sud-slingers with unique aesthetic flourishes. Remarkably, the bar itself is table high, and patrons are seated in cushy, broad-backed chairs. The recessed liquor shelves feature opaque surfaces through which constantly changing colors shine and the tin ceiling is embellished with stamped floral patterns. The bar staff mixes up a menagerie of martinis from classic to watermelon as well as other alcoholic concoctions. However, local beer lovers will be delighted to know the lounge serves a tasty micro-number from Placentia's The Bruery, a spicy summer ale called Trade Winds. DJs regularly spin salsa, soul and funk and include appearances from KCRW's own Jeremy Sole as well as resident DJ Bobby Soul. More known for its great music and beautifully lit lounge than its food, although one could imagine Sinatra eating here if he was into artisan flatbreads.

Many of OC's illustrious watering holes are keen on attaching the word "lounge" to their signage. Some spots need to be reminded that most folks wouldn't apply that term to places with a funky smell and a barren, concrete floor. The Commonwealth in Fullerton actually lives up to its moniker by offering thirsty patrons a comfortable place to sip well-balanced Manhattans and martinis in a comfortably outfitted room while spending idle moments listening to good music or chatting with hip...

Toeing the line between upscale dance hall and bubbling cauldron of underground talent, Commonwealth Lounge is one of the few bars that bends the parameters of rock & roll in as many ways as the law allows. A fervent harvest of psychedelic '60s revivals, guitar-tapping prog artists and Latin-flavored jam bands is a blessed, regular occurrence. Not to mention that such talent balances well with the club's cavalcade of notable funk and hip-hop acts. Commonwealth's loud,... More »
