Pine Ave & 2nd St.: Where to go out in Long Beach
As far as the areas to go out to: Pine Ave is a good area for young people. There's a nice variety of bars, restaurants and clubs and you can just park your car at one of the public parking places and walk from place to place til you find a one that's your style. The Rock Bottom was recommended once to me. It's on Ocean couple blocks away from Pine. You can also check out Good Vibes Cafe, it's small but the 2 owners there are friendly. There's a Irish themed pub that I can't remember the name of (possibly The Auld Dubliner)--it's always packed with a varied crowd. Some people have said the Mai Tai bar is cool, but I haven't gone there yet. I don't drink so, I'm just passing on what my friends like and I haven't been to any of these places other than to meet people.
If you get to the Belmont Shore area on 2nd Street, you should try eating at Open Sesame (Meditaranian Restaurant that's always busy). Order the garlicy potatoes! I also like the Phuket Thai that's on 2nd street also. There's a really good Burrito place there too.
Even though Long Beach isn't really a good tourist spot. But, I do hang out there from time to time because I really like the vibe from the people there. There's a kind of a smaller scale feel like San Fransico there. The younger crowd tends to be more liberal and more down to earth than some of the other hi fi areas of Los Angeles county.
Pine and 2nd Street areas are safe to walk around at night.
Pine Street, The Pike, 2nd Street: Long Beach Nightlife
Long Beach has some great nightlife spots. Definitely check out Pine Street. It has a few clubs, bars and restaurants. You can also go about a 1/2 mile down pine to shoreline drive and go to The Pike. There is another club here and a bar called Mai Tai that usually has a live band on the weekends. Normally its a reggae band, but they do switch it up also. You can also go down to 2nd st. This place has a row of bars. All have cool places to kick it at, just really depends on what you are looking for.. hope this helps..
Mai Tai Bar: Aloha!!!
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.Related to:

Mai Tai Bar: Aloha
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
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 dance… 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.Related to:

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!Related to:

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