Diane Armitage doin' what she does best
Amazing up-to-date insider tips from what appears to be a hip local lady.
She's the best - I luv her.
She's on Facebook
She can yelp
- she blogs for the Examiner.
- she tweets
has a WEBSITE
AND finally her BOOK has been released for 2013!
Don't bother wasting a lot of time reading all my old out-dated outsider tips.
She's the real deal.
Best (and most current -2014) food and bev / nightlife tips for Laguna Beach I've found so far
from a LOCAL.
Viva Diane Armitage! Do what SHE tells you to do.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
oh fu#$* - my Laguna beach goddess - Diane Armitage has just recently posted
that Mosun is now closed as of August 2011.
- Boom Boom Room and now this - maybe I will just kill myself.
(I can hear the cheers now) - Old tip below:
Mosun has excellent sushi & drinks.
Club M upstairs has the young and the beautiful, with DJs spinning all different types of music and believe it or not, go-go girls.
Dress Code: Dress up.
Address: 680 South Coast Highway
Directions: On PCH just a little downhill (north) from Cleo street on the right (east) side of PCH.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
Sometimes referred to as the "dirty bird" (you'll understand once you've been there)
The Sandpiper is a casual local place with live music, but some nights lots of tourists/out-of-towners as well.
Can be dead or busy, just depends on what's happening at the time.
The staff/crew are friendly. Large quantities of alcohol are regularly consumed on the premises - live music and dancing.
Here's their myspace page:
Dress Code: Very very casual.
Address: 1183 S Coast Hwy
Directions: Water side of PCH between Brooks and Oak
Been around 'forever' -
Depends on who you talk to:
Some hate it and call it a meat market, but it has remained popular over the years.
Lately it's claim to fame appears to be Taco Tuesday
Their website (lately) doesn't tell you s#t
Address: 340 S Coast Hwy
"Mistress Flava" live at the Boom Boom
It appears the Boom has become yet another victim of Laguna Beach gentrification.
After 60+ years of history, the scuttlebutt is that the whole building has been sold to be replaced by yet another (allegedly) boutique hotel.
Here is a FILM about it
The Boom Boom room was an historic place for both straights and gays to celebrate Laguna nightlife. It will be missed. Too bad for Laguna Beach, and too bad for you and me.
Original tip below - RIP BOOM BOOM ROOM
If the Whitehouse (see tip below) is just a little too tame for you, try this place.
Boom Boom Room is a very lively gay/drag hotspot.
Fun, definitely not boring.
Weekly wednesday night feature [http://www.boomboomroom.com/wednesday.htm]Dreamgirls is (or at least was) a friggin' riot and starts around 10PM.
Here is a piece on the Death of Gay Nightlife in Laguna Beach.
Dress Code: Anything goes (or should I say, "went")
Address: 1401 South Coast Highway
Directions: A little south of downtown on PCH. Look for Mountain St. it is right on the corner. Entrance / door cover is on Mountain, a main exit door from the bar is on PCH/Mountain St. corner.
