For those of you looking to shake up your usual cocktail routine, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a new gem joining Costa Mesa’s growing cocktail lounge scene—Holiday. Opening on Friday, July 15, the venue, reminiscent of the classic cocktail era, will offer craft libations, late-night gourmet snacks, nightly entertainment, and a unique evening experience out on the town.
Expect a robust list of craft classics including an Old Fashion, Manhattan, Whiskey Mule, and Sazerac. For a spirited twist, one might order the “On Holiday” with rye, ginger, orange juice, Angostura bitters, and soda, or the “Gatsby” with Goose, coconut water, Falernum, lime, and cinnamon syrup.
“Holiday is a really unique spin on a night out in OC,” says Mike Kinsella, operating partner at Social Management Group. “The vibe, ambience, cocktail program and entertainment are going to offer something special for those looking beyond the typical bar scene and who aren’t interested in going to a traditional nightclub.”
Holiday, 721 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa, 949-278-8728
