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.
