    Seek Out Excellent Local Theater

    by marinarena Written Jun 22, 2015

    For theater and local town activity seekers, Long Beach does not disappoint for entertainment. If you are stimulated by "Off Broadway and "Off-off Broadway" play productions, ballet recitals or sophisticated modern dance extravaganzas, Long beach will have something for you. Most performances take place in evenings but daytime matinees commonly occur on the weekend, especially on Sundays. L.B.'s performing arts scene is rich from downtown to sections Like East Village, Belmont Heights and Bixby Knolls. L.B. provides dozens of quaint and large theaters for it. See my major venue list below.

    Mai Tai Bar: Aloha!!!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in Southern California, and you've been wanting to go to Hawaii, but you've never made it there... just go to the Mai Tai Bar in Long Beach. As soon as I stepped into this bar/lounge/restaurant, I felt like I was in Hawaii. Everything was Hawaiian, from the drinks, the servers, to the live music. It's just a really great place to just hang out and meet new people...

    Dress Code: As long as you're wearing something.. you're OK.

    Busters: Seaside dining

    by kyoub Written Dec 30, 2005

    Seaside dining on beautiful Alamitos bay.
    This is another one of my sons favorite places to go to see the sun set.
    It is in a very pretty setting on the bay where you can watch the boats come and go and the birds looking for their dinner.
    We stayed here much past sunset.

    Mai Tai Bar: Aloha

    by DJ_Rolo Updated Sep 18, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mai Tai bar is located at the Pike in Long Beach. Its a replica of the Mai Tai bar in Hawaii. The atmosphere is great. If youve ever been to Hawaii is has the same Aloha Spirit. Reggae music playing when there isnt a live band. They have live bands playing almost everyday, twice a day. I think the best time to come here is when they have a reggae band playing. They have a full bar and serve many of the local hawaiian drinks like Mai Tai's and Lava Flows. These drinks are only $3.00 during happy hour. I believe happy hour is from 7:00 to 11:00. This place gets pretty crowded on weekends. I would recommend getting there early.

    Dress Code: Dress is code is pretty casual excpet they dont allow, plain t's, baggy clothing, sports attire.

    Alegria Cocina Latina: Spanish Dancers

    by TinKan Updated Nov 2, 2003

    The music never ends and the dancers were fun to watch. The dancers do a traditional Spanish dance show off and on through-out the evening with audience participation.
    It is funny to see the folks from the audience danceā€¦ hey it got better as the sangria was flowing.

    Dress Code: Casual dress is the call of the evening, but the nicer you are dressed the easier it is to get in.

    various venues: LIVE MUSIC Every Day of the Week!

    by theprimespotdotcom Written Apr 22, 2003

    Well if you are visiting, you will DEFINITELY be people watching! Local Alternative is most likely on the Music Menu, however did you know in addition to Jazz, Blues, and Zydeco too, that we have Christian Punk Rock (an oxymoron?) on the menu as well!

    Eme when you are visiting and I'll give ya DA INSIDE SCOOP. Otherwise check out: for local band postings!

    Dress Code: Unless you are going to see Jazz or a Play, SoCaL is pretty much laid back... Just wear shirt and shoes... and go easy onthe cologne :)

    Gallery Eleven/Seven ( Monday Night "No Discretion" Open Mic

    by theprimespotdotcom Written Apr 22, 2003

    To me, Poetry is "poor man's politics"... Come see and hear what's on people's minds! Gallery Eleven/Seven is an art gallery by day (don't forget to check out the Second Saturday Artwalks 6-10pm every month!) which converts into a multi-use venue on off hours. The Gallery even hosted a "House Concert" recently!

    Anyway, this Open Mic is hosted by SoCaL newcomer Tammy Morales, who also invites comedy, music and other entertainment, thoughts, announcements, etc... 562-590-6525 FREE

    Dress Code: No dress code, ALL walks of life! (But yes, wear clothes!)

    It's funny, some guy named Mickey from Joisey found out about the Open Mic by reading about it in the VIEW FROM THE HILL newspaper that someone left on the plane!

    Yankee Doodle Sports Bar: Great place to watch Laker games and play pool

    by supune Updated Apr 7, 2003

    I went with a couple buddies to play pool here. This place is cool. The atmosphere was nice and there were 3 or 4 good looking women there. We stayed and watched the a Laker game here. The crowd really picked up by the time the game started.

    There were about 12 pool tables and also ping pong and air hockey tables. I didn't like the music too much because it was alittle too loud to hear other people talk, but that was the only bad point. Otherwise a nice spot to hang out. Pool tables were $11/hour prorated (kind of expensive in my book).

    Dress Code: Casual
