Paul's Cocktails

Nominated for: BEST Dive Bar

Paul's Cocktails 207 W Chapman Ave Orange CA (714) 639-2480

You can tell just from the looks of Paul's that this is the kind of bar that your grandfather and your grandfather's grandfather probably frequented in their day. The interior looks kind of like the recreation room of a Moose Lodge: lots of wood, a sprawling bar with attentive bartenders who are more than happy to make small talk and a pool table that's seen better days. But because drinks are cheap and there's a high kitsch factor, this bar is a standout among the 6AM-2AM drinking establishments in Orange County. Guest DJs or girls dancing on table tops. Paul's is a no-frills dive, but with '70s-era Americana -- kind of like a dive where you would find Archie Bunker sharing a pitcher with the boys.
