The Bars and Clubs of Huntington Beach, Cal - So Hot, They're Cool



The bars and clubs of Huntington Beach are not stuffy or pretentious. Life in a beach town is generally casual and fun. Sand between your toes is the norm at the downtown Huntington Beach bars and restaurant clubs such as Perqs, Dukes, Chimayo at the Beach, Hurricanes and Gallaghers.



When you move inland just a bit to Tumbleweeds Bar & Grill you'll find some solid rock n roll most nights. Drive further up Beach Blvd. to discover the Surf City Saloon. It offers some indy, alt and rock nights and a get-down atmosphere.


Marlin Bar & Grill on Gothard is like Cheers with a tiki twist. I has one of our favorite band, Cubensis, a Grateful Dead cover band.  Martini Blues Jazz Club features jazz, comedy, rock, blues and a whole lot more. It's 3 rooms of entertainment in one place. Mighty nice! Many of the L.A. comedy acts come to Martini Blues or Gallaghers to perform and try out their material on smaller crowds. Fitzgeralds on Magnolia and Garfield offers great rock and alternate bands most every week.


And a new place Blues Cafe (used to be Kozmos, then The Brigg), has brought some top acts to HB.



Oops, we almost forgot about the dinner clubs that offer exceptional sounds. The top straight ahead jazz club is fairly new. Cavallinoo's (used to be Kikuya), on Adams near Beach, where the dinners aren't cheap, but they're good and the jazz is great, and Arbor's ( been around for decades on Springdale & Warner) features jazz at least once a week.


Should we keep going?  The Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa Red Chair Lounge features April Spain, Say When and other bands. They also have bands playing in the restaurant, the Sunset Grille on weekends.



Say When performs at Chimayo each week, as well. And Dukes has bands in the spring and summer at Big Wednesday events, plus Hawaiian Sunday Brunch.

If you like rock, jazz, blues, indy, alt, comedy and tropical music, you'll find the various styles played at the bars, restaurants and clubs of Huntington Beach California.
