OC Weekly's Description

With origins dating back to the 1950s, Tin Lizzie Saloon is Orange County's premier gay bar, where locals and out-of-towners come to mingle in a lively atmosphere and indulge in fine wine and spirits. Open daily, the swanky, red-hued Victorian saloon is located in the heart of SoBeCa (South on Bristol Entertainment, Culture and Arts) in Costa Mesa. Realizing the potential of the Tin Lizzie Saloon space, The Memphis Group owners acquired the property after a 10-yeaer courtship. As part of its ongoing support of the revitalization and development of SoBeCa, the group revamped the interior under the guidance of investor and local bar owner Mike Connely. The saloon's plush, new décor features red pin-and-tuck banquettes with brass foot rails, velvet-embossed "flocked" wallpaper, ornate gold sconces, velvet drapes and hardwood floors. An intriguing display of avant-garde photography decorates the walls. Considered a gay oasis in conservative OC's urban sprawl, Tin Lizzie Saloon serves up a wide selection of premium wines by the glass as well as signature martinis. A pool table and a vast selection of music on a satellite jukebox provide lively entertainment. With a new investment of energy and resources, Tin Lizzie Saloon continues its long tradition of offering a spirited and welcoming atmosphere for OC's gay community.

    A great dive bar for a cheap drink and a good buzz. Best OC gay bar experience...an alternative to West Hollywood. - Anil, The Arrangement

    Gotta get that juke box early. 20 dollars goes for at least an hour and a half!
