The Huddle draws in Costa Mesa's young, hip and grungy set with cheap pitchers, a sizable amount of pool tables, arcade games, dart boards and more. The decor is nothing ornate, wood paneled walls and branded pennants is as dressed up as it gets. A small number of booths, tables and high counters are scattered on one end of the bar, making room for eight pool tables that maintain a sizable line throughout the evening. A small outdoor smoking patio may be the most densely populated area of The Huddle, a consistent crowd flowing in and out of the tiny backroom space. Cheap drinks, typical dive bar service and a high energy atmosphere are just part of why The Huddle is a local favorite night after night.
