The only two reasons why anyone should ever go to Mesa in Costa Mesa
Reason #1: Lychee Martini
Reason #2: Cast Iron Skillet Mussels
The two things that are actually worth going for and paying the $$$ for. The only great thing about this lounge is the retractable roof that pulls back at 11pm. Otherwise, you're paying to cram into a small space and fight off douchebag bouncers. Since when did this place get so crowded they needed security at the door?
Go early, get the mussels and lychee martini. Then leave and hit up a more affordable bar.
