Tapas Bar and Grill specializes in serving tapas, delicious Spanish appetizers that come on small plates. The fun thing about tapas is that the smaller portions allow for diners to choose several plates to eat, and at a place like Tapas, where all of the plates are tasty, that means you won't have to make the difficult decision of picking just one to eat. During lunch and dinner, Tapas attracts a mixed crowd of families, older singles, and younger college students, no doubt attracted to the reasonable prices. The flamenco show during dinner on weekends amps up the energy level, and sometimes the dancers have been known to grab people from the audience to join in. After the show, the DJ starts spinning great Latin and hip-hop music and the large dance floor opens up for everyone. Whether you join in on the fun or prefer to sit and watch while sipping some of Tapas' great Spanish sangria, a stop at Tapas Bar and Grill will have you making plans for your next visit before you even walk out the door.
Named the Best Dance Club in Orange County by OC Weekly in 2010, Focus is a small, trendy spot to dance the night away. By day, Tapas is a Spanish restaurant, but by night every Tuesday and some Saturdays, Tapas is transformed in Focus. A bit of the restaurant lingers with the night as sangria and one dollar tacos are served all night. The club allows age 18 and up, and for those over 21 beers and well drinks are also served, and discounted if you order before 10:30p. Focus emphasizes good local DJ's as well as talented up and coming names. -Katie Kopacz
Ten Nightclub is located a short distance from John Wayne Airport, providing a touch of jet-set class to this Newport Beach nightclub. A massive interior plays host not only to numerous LED and visual displays, but the usual rogues gallery of Orange County clubbers dancing and grinding the night away with the endemic abandon. Special musical guests and DJs are featured most nights, requiring a little forethought in the event of a sold out show. An outdoor patio and VIP lounge expand the club's space, making this club compound an imposing force on the Newport social scene. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's one of the few clubs of its kind in the area, and the fracas of the somewhat nearby Landmark Steakhouse is certainly not stealing any business. Packed to the brim with that typical Orange County charm, Ten Nightclub is a unique destination, if only because it exists within the city limits.
