Belly Up Like a Local at This So Cal Watering Hole

Few things in life are better than getting legally buzzed on the beach.

The moment you step foot into Blackie’s By The Sea, you’ll quickly realize that it hasn’t changed much since opening in 1953.


Decades of old photographs and memories, antique beer cans, and bragging rights line the walls. The inside of the bar is illuminated by the sunlight that shines through the open doors and windows.

Located just steps from the sand, tourists and locals alike gather at this quintessential old school bar for ice-cold beer, stiff drinks, and good vibes you won’t find anywhere else in Newport Beach.


If you’re lucky enough to snag one of the bar stools near the entrance from an old-timer, you’ll be treated to awesome ocean views and a killer sunset come golden hour.
