SOCIAL Costa Mesa

SOCIAL in Costa Mesa takes late night craft cocktails and elevates it! The menu is inspired by the south, which means the portions are nice and hearty, as the plates are made to be shared like the Chicken and Waffles or the Drive Thru Burger. Everything they do is thoughtfully curated, even down to their house-made syrups, cordials, and bitters for their cocktails.

La Vida Cantina Costa Mesa

A good meal and some drinks is well deserved after a night of dancing. So rest your feet over at La Vida Cantina, where they do Mexican meals, but with a refreshing twist. The atmosphere of the restaurant also lends itself for relaxation, with an outdoor bar, and fire pits.Their outdoor patio vibes will also transport you from Orange County to a coastal Mexican resort (perhaps with a little help from their signature Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita)!

LSXO

In the back of Bluegold at Pacific City, lies the hidden gem LSXO. The ambiance is loungey and is reminiscent of  a secret Vietnamese room, filled with sinfully luxurious Vietnamese food and craft cocktails. Vietnamese cuisine lends itself to be structurally refreshing, with notes of lemon grass and heaps of fresh herbs. For a late night meal that won’t send you to bed, head over to LSXO to start, or end your night!  

 

Mesa Costa Mesa

If you’re looking for ambiance, stiff drinks, and a good meal while you lounge, Mesa offers all of the above.

Shin Sen Gumi Fountain Valley

Some would argue that the best late night snack would be a bowl of warm and soothing ramen! At Shin Sen Gumi they take ramen seriously and are open everyday of the year, including holidays. With ramen so good, it’ll have you slurping till you hit the bottom of the bowl! The noodles are delicate, yet hold up in the broth and will keep you coming back for more.

Afters Ice Cream Fountain Valley

What do you get when you stuff ice cream into a warm donut? We call it magic, but over at Afters Ice Cream they call it the ‘Milky Bun.’ Begin by choosing a Milky Bun (glazed or unglazed), then select your ice cream flavor (Peanut Butter S’mores, Cookie Monster, or Vietnamese Coffee, to name a few), and finally choose your toppings! Afters is the place to be for all you late night sugar fiends!
