Kitch Bar, Costa Mesa | Late Night Happy Hour

kitch bar happy hour costa mesa happy hour

Kitsch Bar is cool! Really cool! Living in Newport Beach we frequent the Newport, Costa Mesa, South Coast Plaza, CDM bar scene looking for great happy hours (especially great late night happy hours), but for some reason we had never been to Kitsch.

Our mistake, cuz Kitsch Bar is cool.

It's small, but not overcrowded, so call it intimate. Actually it was perfectly occupied. We arrived early on a Saturday (say about 8pm) and had no trouble getting the best table. There's not many to choose from, but there are two or three booths against the outside wall which are slightly raised and give you a nice view of the little place and the little crowd.

By 11:30 or 12am the crowd was there and the second DJ was tuned up...but, it was never too crowded that you couldn't comfortably walk around or get a drink in just a few minutes. These are things we like in our people, but not people falling all over each other. The music was great too. Not just the music, but the volume. Loud, but not too loud to have a normal conversation with your company. Loud though. Loud enough to feel it in the seat. Two EDM DJ's played house and deep house starting at about 10pm. They were both totally solid.

And of course, the happy hour! The happy hour is great and late, from 7pm to 9pm EVERY DAY! Cocktails for $8 and the bartenders are creative and quick. You know that feeling when you're at a bar and it's like your putting them out when you order something, or take a few minutes to decide? Not here. We considered our choice of concoctions with curiosity and clever counseling from the friendly bartenders throughout the night.

Any way you slice it, Kitsch Bar is an all around win in our book. Definitely stop by next time you're in the mood for an excellent night out!
