Best Nightlife in Brea

Best Nightlife in Brea

There are so many things to do in Brea that it can be overwhelming, but if you’re looking for the best nightlife in Brea, then read on. You may not go out all that often, but it’s important to know which spots to go to on the occasions that you do. We have a few different places in mind, each with their own style and unique features. 

Shady Nook

If you like dive bars as much as us, then Shady Nook should be on your list of the best nightlife in Brea. You’ll find that it’s smaller, has more locals, and can get rowdy at times, which makes it all the more fun. Although this might not be the ideal atmosphere for everyone, it definitely makes us feel at home! You will get a different crowd and ambiance every trip, and the drink specials are different daily as well.

 

Although the drink specials change, because the bartenders aim to please they always keep the drinks strong! That fact in combination with pool tables and live music on Saturday nights makes it a great location to start the night off or as your only destination.

Best Nightlife in Brea

 

The Improv

Another great way to kick off your night is to head over to a comedy show. The Brea Improv has a longstanding history of scheduling high-caliber comedians, both established and up and coming talent. The great thing about this venue is that you can go on back to back nights and they are likely to have an entirely different lineup with all new jokes.

 

Getting the night started off laughing is a brilliant way to set a cheerful tone for the rest of the evening. They also serve some pretty great food, oh and we can’t forget the drinks. The Improv has a liquor license, which means you can have any drink you would at any other bar, but you’ll be far more entertained!

 

Macallan’s Public House

If you like to eat, and most people out there seem to, then give your taste buds a treat by heading to this gastropub. For those who don’t know what a gastropub is, just know that it means that they take their food as seriously as their drinks. Some of the best food around is popping up in gastropubs because they procure higher quality product and promote creativity in the kitchen.

Best Nightlife in Brea

The incredible food choices along with the almost endless variety of high-end whiskey (wrapped up in a laid-back lounge area) make this easily one of the best nightlife spots in Brea. Macallan’s is perfect for any occasion, whether you want to grab some great food, try some new whiskey, or mix it up with other people in town, this is the place to be!
