The Bar: The marquee out front featured "midgets". Sure enough, midgets in bikinis walking up and down the bar top. You don't want to stare, but simply cannot look away. The bar itself was large, seats about 15 people on the stools, along with tables and couches scattered around the inside. Large outdoor patio for smoking and drinking. The bartenders were pretty good looking and a couple were topless, with just pasties on.
The Crowd: Mostly all men....which is becoming a pattern at most every bikini bar.
Service: Moderate. Place was quite busy, but there were at least 4 bartenders working.
Prices: Expensive! $11 for a pitcher of Coors light? That's insane. Not to mention $6 for a tall can of PBR!
Entertainment: Several video games, internet jukebox, 4 pool tables.
Restroom: Clean, but covered in torn out pages from Playboy and used as wallpaper.
Bartender Chat: None. We chatted with the owner a bit but nothing spectacular to report.
Closing statement: Not overly impressed with this place. Voted "Sexiest Bikini Bar in OC" by Maxim Magazine, not sure that we would agree with that. It was kinda dingy. We got in, got pictures, got out. Short night.
