Muldoon’s

Top choice bar in Newport Beach

At upscale, upbeat, much-admired Muldoon’s, choose from indoor, outdoor (under a leafy tree) and bar seating and enjoy decent, if pricey, Irish pub grub, 10 beers on tap and live acoustic sounds Thursday through Saturday nights and many Sunday afternoons.

Our only complaint: it's a drive from the beach, in an office park by Fashion Island.
