Down on the western edge of Long Beach lies Bahia Social Club, a small plates restaurant that transforms itself from a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating to a small concert venue at 10pm on weekend nights. We were there recently to dine on their tapas menu and then we transitioned inside for a concert. Of course, we brought our camera along to capture the food and the scene.

The scene is a lively one. On two occasions over the past week, we stopped by and were seated outside to dine at their street side dining. Due to local noise ordinances, they close down the outdoor dining and close all of the windows strictly at 10pm, so this is a spot to hit earlier in the night.

The plates that we had were varied as we tried to have a taste of all that they could offer. We went from Fried Calamari and Fish Tacos to Plantains, Shrimp Flat Bread and Skirt Steak. It’s best to order 3-4 plates per person and if you’re with a larger group (the first night we had a table of 6 and then a table of 4 on our next visit) order a slew of items to be shared by everyone. Diners can always order more if one particular dish runs out. The average price of a dish was around $7, so nothing is too expensive to order again.

They have a great bar scene as well with locals coming and going throughout the night. On the last night we were there, we stayed for the Pearl Jam tribute band and when they started their set, the joint was buzzing and rocking to the music.

This is the perfect spot to hit with a large group of friends for true variety, but even if you are with yourself or one more, the drinks at the bar and a careful selection of the tapas menu will keep you happy all night long.
