Get a drink on a luxurious cruise ship without the hassle of motion sickness. Permanently moored in the Long Beach Harbor for decades, the R.M.S. Queen Mary sports an art deco bar with some of the best views of the downtown skyline. The gorgeous wood-paneled room,which has maintained most of its original accouterments through the years, features a beautiful painting of dancing passengers above the full bar. It also offers a modest selection of draft brews, including Stella, Bass and Guinness. If cocktails are your thing, these drinks are stiff, so don't get too close to the railings. While you won't be lost at sea if you go overboard, it's a long drop into the shallow harbor.
