Where: Laguna Beach
For: All Ages/21+ at Night
I’ve been going to Skyloft since I turned 21 (I grew up in Orange County). The most recent time we stopped by was for my 10-year high school reunion in May of this year. It is not only a great American restaurant with rooftop seating, but it turns into a club at night with live bands, a dance floor and huge main bar.
Skyloft is on the second floor of a building in Laguna Beach. It includes the entire second floor of the building and the rooftop deck. Half of the second floor is dedicated to restaurant seating. Patrons can walk upstairs to the roof for outdoor restaurant seating that has heaters at night when it gets cooler by the beach. Guests can go to Skyloft for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Happy Hour. A kids’ menu is offered for the littlest diners. Food is an eclectic mix of American food, and menus can be acceded on Skyloft’s website.
The Main Bar
The Main Bar is on the main level and has 12 TVs throughout the room. Décor is modern and clean, and the bar is three hundred-sixty degrees accessible. Barstools surround the bar with cocktail tables and small lounge areas lining the walls. A large selection of craft beers on tap along with a full bar are offered.
A security guard starts checking identification at the entrance of the restaurant starting at 9:00pm. In the room attached to the main bar on the main level is a stage area. Every Tuesday night there is a comedy night. Cocktail tables for standing room along with sit down seating are around the stage and dance floor area. Small booths for parties are on two sides of the walls. Live music is offered on the main floor six nights per week. The dance area gets busy later in the night on Fridays and Saturdays. The upstairs outdoor area is open during the night, and guests can go up to get some fresh air before resuming dancing the night away.
The crowd is more dressed up in true Laguna Beach Style. A mix of younger and older patrons come to Skyloft, and Skyloft shuttles give free transportation to guests within a 3-mile radius of the restaurant. Beach attire is not allowed.
Lunch and dinner costs approximately $20 to $25 per person (excluding drinks). Lunch combos are offered at specific times (please check the website). Happy Hour is 3:00pm until close on Monday and 3:00pm to 6:00pm from Tuesday through Friday. Late Night Happy Hour is offered Sunday through Wednesday from 10:00pm until close. Tuesday Comedy Night Tickets are $20 for VIP seated tickets and $10 for standing room tickets. Drinks cost $12 to $15 per drink depending on what is ordered.
