Side Door is deviously hidden a few steps away from Pacific Coast Highway, a red key above the door the only advertisement for this hidden gem. The official gastropub of fine dining manor house Five Crowns, Side Door boasts an august English pomp while maintaining a convivial atmosphere. Knowledgeable bartenders guide guests through a massive selection of wines and craft beers, both on tap and in the bottle, as well as a number of signature cocktails and classic libations. The menu is significantly different from the aristocratic British offerings served one room over, savory selections of California cuisine adding to the amenity of an on-call charcuterie chef. English influences surely make their way onto the menu, but only as a staging area to showcase fresh California produce and that type of refinement that Newport Beach does best. Plush couches, banquettes and communal tables are tastefully situated around crackling fireplace, creating an unparalleled ambiance for an elegant escape.
