Swinging Door

Map & Directions 355 El Camino Real
Tustin, CA 92780


OC Weekly's Description

Though it's nestled among the quaint, idyllic brick buildings of Old Town Tustin, there's something staunchly divey about the Swinging Door. Its small, rectangular-shaped concrete floor is host to a couple of pool tables and a row of barstools. Though one might expect an older crowd to frequent this establishment, it actually caters to a college-aged clientele, typically featuring electronic music pulsating loudly through its sound system speakers. And be prepared: This place gets packed. The full bar serves up stiff cocktails courtesy of bikini-clad barmaids as well as a nice selection of brews on tap including Newcastle, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Stella, Michelob Ultra and Pyramid Hefeweizen.

    I know this place is an institution but the recent "remodel" has made it impossible to navigate. Crowd seems younger, more desperate. Music so loud it's impossible to talk. Difficult to get drinks.
