YAH Says : Voted as one of… view more

Voted as one of Newport Beach's "Best Watering Holes To Mingle With Friendly Locals". View the reason below:

 

Sharkeez, as a brand, has quite the local following. For example, someone will be in Huntington Beach and have their hearts set on heading over to Sharkeez on Main Street only to find the line up exceeding anything close to reasonable. Instead of heading a mere steps back, forth, or across the street to the variety of other bars on Main, they'll abandon their hard fought parking spot and head south up PCH to the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach for it's own Baja Sharkeez location. It's worth the 15-20 minute drive because well, its Sharkeez. This location packs in the same cool crowd as the HB establishment but is more comfortable and spacious, which just means you can fit in more of that same cool crowd. The seating set up on the beach side wall is great for cross table introductions and conversation while the compact dance floor ensures plenty of face to face bumping and grinding, intentional or otherwise. The weekly food and drink specials bring the locals in on a consistent basis so no worries about ending up in a passports only zone.

YAH Says : "There are no strangers… view more

"There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met yet." is Malarky's motto borrowed from author/poet William Butler Yeats and they stand by the motto as if it was their mission statement.

There seems to be a consistent theme with giving away the top spot on this list to an Irish Pub for the Orange County areas on YAHglobal.Com. Its as if people spy a green sign with a shamrock somewhere in the vicinity and they are magically (yes, like Frosted Lucky Charms) drawn in droves, arms outstretched and hands ready to grip a guinness stout. Regardless if you have a drop of irish blood in your veins you're made to feel like family (drunken uncles included) by staff and patrons alike. Malarky's is no exception to this soon to become rule.

Since 1977, Malarky's has provided a bar stool and elbow room for locals and tourists together, to trade stories and tap pints in toasting unison. Our best tip is this; locals know to get there early in the evening for dinner and set up camp well into the night to avoid the building line up outside. It will get packed so you should follow the lead and do the same.
