So maybe Valentine’s left a bitter taste in your mouth or maybe that “singles appreciation” party didn’t quite go the way you wanted. Either way, get out of your post-holiday haze, nurse that hangover and get yourself to one of these top 5 hook up bars. Any one of these picks will give you the chance to pick a little, talk a little and maybe if you’re lucky you’ll be making everyone who had a good Valentine’s Day a little jealous.
1 Javier's Crystal Cove
Known for cougars, the kids who love them and stiff drinks, come to Javier's and appreciate the wildlife. Things don't get bigger, blonder or bolder anywhere else. With a killer view of the ocean and the killer view of the crowd, take your pick and you won't be let down.
2 Landmark Steakhouse
For a more intimate feel and the coziest banquettes around, Landmark's dimly lit bar and great eats are one draw, but the Thursday night crowds (make that any night) make this lounge the place to be when you're looking for a date or just looking to stay warm with someone.
3 Crow Bar & Kitchen
Prefer your crowd watching with a little less competition? At the Crow Bar you won't have to compete with the ocean view, but you'll definitely have to stand off against OC's best. Known for the possibilities and the naughty nights, you won't be let down when you pull up to this bar.
4 Commonwealth Lounge
Take it easy at Commonwealth and let the bar do the work for you. With ambiance like this -- think big booths, sexy lighting and smooth music playing all night -- it's no work at all. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines because after a visit to Commonwealth, you'll be running all night long.
5 District Lounge
The sexy singles at the District are reason enough to make this a regular spot on your rounds, but if you're looking to hook up, there's nowhere else you can go where the crowds's this varied or vivacious. They party hard at the District but that's why you're there, right?
