Paradise Bar & Restaurant
"The Birds of Paradise." "Paradise Café." "The Bird." After more than 30 years in the heart of Long Beach, Paradise Bar & Restaurant has had plenty of time to accrue a whole heap of nicknames. But the history contained within these colorful walls goes back even further than the 1980s. The remodeled interior space features historical artifacts from Old Long Beach, including a bar top made from a chunk of the 1920s Bank of America building, a thousand-pound falcon pulled from the top of the flagpole at Cooper Arms, and a front door taken from Morey's Music Store on Pine Street. It all adds up to an evocative atmosphere in which to have a few drinks and forget your troubles with drag shows, karaoke nights, and a monthly male gogo show known as "Bearadise."
During the day, however, the food is the star of the show, from the gourmet paninis and flatbread pizzas to a tempting brunch every weekend. Executive chef Veronica Organista oversees a kitchen that bridges the gap between contemporary Americana and classic continental cuisine. Over the course of a career working with the likes of Wolfgang Puck and Norman Van Aken, she's developed the talent to craft fine dining for any dietary limitations, including gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan. A wine list culled from all over the globe rounds out the experience.
