OC Weekly's Description

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.

    Best Rock Club 2010! Tucked into a red-brick plaza at the southern tip of downtown Fullerton, its sleek, neon-lit lounge vibes collide with old-fashioned East Coast swagger and flowering chandeliers.
