The wooden floors and towering brick walls of this cavernous Belmont Shore space call to mind a grand, old-timey saloon, while the curved, wooden ceiling is reminiscent of a massive airplane hangar. Don't discount the name as mere bluster— if you ask the establishment's employees, Legends pioneered the sports bar concept when it opened 30 years ago. And this spot takes it all the way. With two enormous movie theater-type screens and 30 flat-screen TVs ringing the room, as well as tiny flat screens installed in the booths, the bar is set up for serious sports spectating. The two-story space seats 273 and has three bar areas: two downstairs and one up. It features a full complement of liquors, with bar staff offering everything from mimosas and bloody Marys, to Bud Light. Happy hour kicks of Monday through Friday at 3 p.m. and ends at 6. Specials include domestic pints at $3.50 with 25 ounce domestics for $5.50. And while Legend's location in Long Beach means lots of good shopping and eating close by, it also means parking can be a challenge. So bring your quarters and get there early on game days. Legends is a big place, but it fills up fast.
