The Abbey: Brown Beers, White Wine & Sports
Extensive wine and beer list in a very cozy atmosphere.
Televisions with Sports on all the time, along with sports memorabilia. This is not your typical sports bar, this place is very charming. The Abbey is similar to a brown bar you would find in Belgium. The wood burning pizza oven gives this place lots of atmosphere and charm. Can get very busy with young professionals on Friday and Saturday nights. The food is surprisingly good, unlike other bars in Seal Beach. The seared ahi tuna, the southwest salad, and their pizzas are all very good. They serve lunch as well, but the Abby is best at night. Very festively decorated at Christmas time.
Dress Code: Casual and relaxed dress. Though this is a bar, it does not have a sleezy pick up feel at all. Couples as well as families would feel comforatable here. The bartenders are always friendly and polite, along with the staff.

O' Malley's: Every Town Needs and Irish Pub
Just a great informal place to throw back a drink or two. The cocktails tend to be a bit watered down so stick with beer and wine unless you are looking for an expensive buzz.
Dress Code: Beach Casual..shirt and shoes required. You'll see a wide variety of dress types.
Hennesy's: Pub #2
Hennesey's used to be O'Malley's but apparently the town of 25,000 needed another Irish pub in addition to the Irisher and Clancy's, both of which are a bit further down the street.
This town is perfect for a pub crawl or A VT meeting!
Dress Code: Beach Casual.
Main Street: Main Street
There are several bars on this street, like Hennessey's and O'Malley's (gee...think most of the bars might be Irish?). All of which are pretty casual and laid back. People are out to have a good time with some buddies while drinking some beer, not to dress up and try to impress someone.
Dress Code: Casual - jeans will do nicely.
