With a classic cocktail lounge, guests can enjoy classic and crafted cocktails at the handcrafted wood carved bar. Holiday offers a relaxing environment to hang out with friends while enjoying a live band. On the night we visited Holiday, we had the opportunity to see Missing Persons,

Holiday Costa Mesa Crafted Cocktails

We started with the Southern Graham, my favorite of the hand crafted cocktails that contained Woodford Reserve, Bourbon, grapes, basil and ginger ale.

The Whinging On was also quite tasty with Henricks Gin, Raspberry and a hint of lime.

At about 9pm, the opening band – Diane and the Deductibles. a rocking, pop-bluesy five-piece original band took the stage for about an hour. At about 11pm, Missing Persons rocked the house with classic songs like Walking in L.A., Mental Hopscotch and Destination Unknown and went on until about 12:20pm.
