    Bars don't get quainter than the Beach Ball. If you're a first time visitor don't be surprised if the friendly bar staff offers you some free homemade food and a sympathetic ear. Read more

    Fun little dive right on the boardwalk. If you haven't been before, you might miss it. But if you do get there, make sure to grab some dollar slice pizza right outside. Legend.

    Been patronizing B. Ball for years. Their night bartenders are among the best in Newport! Why would any idiot open and close their credit card 3 times - inconvenient and more costly for the merchant!

    Location and vibe are on point. You are held hostage on what music the bartender is in the mood for though ... last time it was the titanic sound track

    Bar is fun cuz of touch tunes but the bartender is weird cause he has an issue w using a card. There's already a $10 minimum which is fine but if we wanna pay 3 different times it shouldnt be dramatic

    Great Rate Limo will have the Matte Black Limo out tonight in Newport Beach chauffeuring people home. More fun and better looking than a cab. Drink up and give us a call at 877-360-8366

    Mimosas on the beach. Open 6am to 2am. (Everyone needs a little break I guess)

    Wait...really? One of Esquire's "best bars"? Tell me you're joking. The bartender on Tuesday night is an absolute joke. Standard dive bar, dick staff. Dirty, bad drinks. You're best going elsewhere.
