Orange County sports some of the ‘best coast’ weather and is home to the beautiful city of Newport Beach. With weather this good, it should be a sin to stay indoors. So whether you’re planning a casual stroll on the pier, soaking up some sun in the sand, or looking to grab a drink, Newport Beach provides you with the ability to do just one or all three. Check out some of the best bars that locals just can’t seem to stay away from.
Woody’s was originally established by Woody Payne. Payne was a fisherman, and you can definitely feel those fisherman-beach-esque vibes when you walk in. Over time, it switched ownership but the same chill environment remained and, believe it or not, it was once owned by Chuck Norris! It is a waterfront location that faces Newport Bay, which can be enjoyed if you step out onto their outdoor patio area. If you’re looking to get your groove on, Woody’s also has a pretty decently sized dance floor which is accompanied by the music of a live DJ on Fridays.
