Laguna Beach, CA 92651

A Belgian bar may sound unusually specific, but apparently Belgium has their very own delicious beers and French fries (or, in this case, Belgium fries). Besides their beer, wine and cocktails, the bar also has authentic Belgian fare with a “French flare.” They can serve up roasted salmon or appetizers like cheese croquettes. They have all-you-can-eat mussels and fries, including a beverage (Belgian beer on tap or house wine) Monday – Wednesday. On Friday and Saturday nights they transform into a nightclub.
