The first hotel in Laguna Beach (1888), we locals sometimes forget that this Queen by the Sea may be all grace, charm and dignity, but she’s got a rowdy side, too – that would be the Hotel Laguna’s Lounge on Saturdays and Sundays during football season.

With a monster TV and couch and lounge seating that bests any bachelor’s living room (or, well, my living room for that matter), this place rocks for catching the biggest games.

The Hotel’s Football Fare Happy Hour Menu offers sliders, spring rolls, wings, rings and more, and pours 3 stellar drafts, 14 bottled beers (this month’s Octoberfest adds greater bounty to your selection) and wells, martinis and wines.
