Details

  • Daily 8am-2am
In its second-floor perch in downtown Long Beach, the large, concrete-floored, utilitarian space draws a largely African-American clientele, and hosts comics who poke fun at life's grittier experiences. (Look for comedienne D.D. Rainbow, who mixes the bitter with the sweet when she riffs on her father's experiences with dementia.) The full bar serves up stiff drinks and a modest selection of draft beers including the ever-delicious wheat ale, Blue Moon.
