Take a stroll among the many watering holes in Downtown Fullerton on a Friday night and you'll be hard-pressed to find a bar with more rock & roll style than the Slidebar Cafe. Yes, it features two rooms where suicide-girl style bartendresses serve up cocktails along with imported and domestic draft beer. This is also one of the few downtown establishments presenting top-notch local and national rock acts of the punk, ska and hardcore variety. The walls of the bar are decked out with autographed rock memorabilia and lined with flat screen TVs.Be sure to check out the halls lined with pics taken by rock photographer Lisa Johnson. Images include No Doubt's Gwen Stefani with Warren Fitzgerald of the Vandals. Finer pints of beer, including Shock Top and Newcastle, cost $6, with lower-shelf fare such as Bud Light running $5. Happy hour is every day 3 p.m.-6 p.m. except Saturday. Sunday happy hour is 3 p.m.-9 p.m. and features half off draft beers and well drinks.

A relatively chill, upbeat evening will be had by all tonight at the Slidebar with Thicker Than Thieves, a six-piece rock-reggae band inspired by earlier groups like The Clash, Bob Marley & The Wailers and surf music. The band swears by... More »

When the members of Suedehead considered covers to add to their repertoire of original, modern soul send-ups, they searched for a meticulous representation of their band through borrowed song. The OC outfit, which boasts former members of Beat... More »
Nothing against the late, great Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrel, but when I saw a burger on the menu of the Slidebar named the Cowboy From Hell, after the metal legends' 1990 album, I began to wonde... More »
There are few solid metal venues in OC where you can rely on breakneck riffs and top-notch brutality on a weekly basis. And even though we knew it wouldn't last forever, it saddened us yesterday to ge... More »
Lord love a duck...don't be duped by Slidebar. great place for new band to uh...play.but it lacks. Bought a beer before the bus..then turned downed when I came back. I was wearing athletic pants. Serious? Their night club scene is jeans and slacks? When people working out the most now? (well not me)Dem girls! yep...enjoy the short skirts..again.
Rock on Lit. Show you rep Fullerton. Show you Rock! Show places like Roscoe's and Heroes' is the better place to be.
Slidebar show why ppl like LA more. Show why skip you before the train and/or bus. Cuz there's plenty around.
Kale Salad is fresh kale, crisp apples, pecans, and bleu cheese crumbles tossed in balsamic vinaigrette. Jeremy loves this salad with seared ahi on top. The salad was vibrant and crisp. The pecans were candied and added a great flavor. Apples were sweet and crisp. Bleu cheese was perfectly paired with its creamy and punchy flavor. The balsamic vinaigrette was just right adding just the right amount of flavor. Thumbs up, way up!
The Psycho Burger is a half pound hamburger patty topped with melted cheddar, Swiss, and American cheeses, lettuce, tomato, crispy onions, and bacon all served between to grilled cheese sandwiches. The hamburger is made with premium beef. Sounds crazy, right?! The burger is aptly named and pretty damn tasty. It's HUGE! The buns alone are a meal! The burger is cooked to your liking and loaded with gooey melty cheese. It comes with garlic fries which were perfectly crispy with a beautiful golden brown chip flavor. Just come hungry or bring some friends! Thumbs up, way up!
Grilled, Fried Fish, or Shrimp Tacos is succulent, fresh halibut or shrimp grilled or fried and served on warm corn tortillas with onions, cilantro, and a lime aioli. These tacos have a good portion of fish fillet inside and are grilled to perfection. If you add dash of salt and some Cholula, these tacos are rockin' good. The lime cilantro rice is iconic and has a really good, refreshing flavor to it, not like ordinary Mexican rice. And when you mix it up with the rice, it becomes almost Puerto Rican/Cuban in flavor. Another option to offer for the fish is blackened. Cajun flavor works well with fish and would make these tacos more awesome.
If we told you that local-OC-boy-made-good/Lit guitarist Jeremy Popoff opened up a rock & roll bar and restaurant in Fullerton, you'd think, "That sounds like a cool place to get hammered." And you'd be right. But what if we told you that the food they serve (around $15-$20 per person) is unequivocally awesome? Juicy buffalo burgers twice as buttery as beef. Meat loaf to rival your mom's. A deep-fried chocolate cake topped with ice cream called the Whammy Bar. All of this thanks to a cook named Walter, who is presumably unaware he's cooking for a bunch of rowdy drunks. But rock on, Walter! Rock on!
