No matter how much you like hanging with your guy friends, every now and then you need a night out with just your girls to do all of the things that your guy friends don’t really enjoy. These places provide great food and beverages, as well as the opportunity to dance to some live music, for the next time you want to get together for a night out with your girls.

The Rooftop Lounge
1289 S. Coast Highway
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
(949) 497-2446
www.rooftoplagunabeach.com

Few things compare to The Rooftop Lounge, particularly at sunset. You can have some of the mojitos (the staff members refer to the mojitos as “vacation in a glass”) that this place is famous for while you enjoy a spectacular sunset. This is Laguna Beach, so you can go casual here. However, you’ll fit in pretty nicely if you decide to get dolled up for your girls’ night here.

Javier’s
7832 E. Pacific Coast
Highway Newport Beach, CA 92657
(949) 494-1239
www.javiers-cantina.com

Javier’s is a place that offers everything you could want for your girls’ night. In addition to being an Orange County institution, it also has amazing views that are even more amazing at dusk. Javier’s offers plenty of appetizers to share with your girls as well as some amazing seafood dishes. You’ll also find an amazing selection of tequilas – the unofficial beverage of girls’ nights everywhere. You can’t go wrong having your girls’ night at Javier’s.

Iva Lee’s
333 N. El Camino Real
San Clemente, CA 92672
(949) 361-2855
www.ivalees.com

When you have a night out with your girls, you want to enjoy some good food and drinks without having to fend off guys who are there for a meet market sort of atmosphere. Iva Lee’s has you covered. The food is amazing, and to make it even better, you’ll find specials on food five nights a week. One of the specials is on Mondays, when some menu items are half off the regular price. Iva Lee’s also has you covered if you want to do some dancing with live music every Wednesday through Saturday. Iva Lee’s is a cozy place, so smaller groups work best here.

Tapas
4253 Martingale Way
Newport Beach, CA 92660
(949) 756-8194
www.tapasnewportbeach.net

Tapas is a great place to go if one of the girls in your group is celebrating a birthday. This place offers a free birthday dinner if you can round up a party of six or more. Reservations are required. Even if it’s not someone’s birthday, you can enjoy great Spanish food and live entertainment like a flamenco band. You can also get a salsa dance lesson here, which makes for a night out that you and your girls won’t forget.

The Twisted Vine

Fullerton, CA 92832

If you’re looking to enjoy some fine wines, Twisted Vine is the place for you. The walls are lined with wines that you and your girls will want to try. Twisted Vine also offers a weekly flight of both white and red wines so you can sample more than one. A variety of cheese dishes – such as baked brie – are available to pair with the wine. This is a place with a mellow vibe, and the wine will only make it more mellow.
