The Falcon is teeny, but when you're looking for a cozy neighborhood spot, that's a good thing. The unimposing entrance on the eponymous Falcon Avenue is just north of Broadway, a hot spot for gay nightlife in Long Beach. Though it's known as a gay bar, the little dive's crowd is far from exclusively LGBT. Absent the usual gay-bar garish decorations, the Falcon favors dim lighting, a pitched wooden roof and slowly twirling ceiling fans, plus a full bar, seven TVs, a jukebox and a dart board. On Saturdays, there's a $1 (yes, that's right: $1) beer bust from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Domestics such as Blue Moon and Pyramid sell for $3.75, and imports are $4.50. Domestic drafts cost $2.50, while imported drafts are $4, as are well drinks. The happy hour stretches from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
