The Blind Donkey in Orange County is a cosy and seductive whiskey loving bar. They have a small but tasty range of bar food as well as some exotic cocktails.

The Blind Donkey is a dark sultry bar filled with awesome quirks and good drinks. Based in a prime location at Long beach, you can make way down to this bar and enjoy a nice evening. Imagine being able to play games, have a drink and chill out with friends. Here you can do just that! This bar is unique and fun filled with vintage arcade game machines, pool tables, electronic darts, pinball and a photo booth. The dark theme runs throughout this basement bar, from the black leather chesterfield booths, to the wooden bar itself. Big vintage benches run the length of the bar, so big groups can easily fit in here. This bar offers a small selection of bar food such as burgers, you also have the choice of ordering in food from local businesses. We recommend the BBQ chicken fries from the bar, which is Bourbon BBQ chicken, mozzarella, red onion and cilantro. Drinks wise, this bar is big on whiskey and bourbon. Of course these are a must! But we also love the cocktail ‘rosemary’s baby’. It is a unique mix of gin, lemon juice, rosemary syrup and bitters. Another great cocktail if you’re not quite up for some neat stuff is the ‘sauzerac’ which is whiskey mixed with syrup, absinthe and lemon, which makes it that little bit sweeter (or sour!)
