Blackie’s by the Sea has been regularly adjusting to still serve those who call coastal Orange County home. Blackie’s by the Sea offers outdoor seating, curbside cocktails, and beer to-go with food orders. Times are tough for all restaurants, but Blackie’s by the sea has been an iconic fixture on the Newport Beach Boardwalk and has plans to continue serving customers. The bar was founded by William “Blackie” Blackstock in 1953. It’s the only bar that can claim to have its own beach and surfbreak bearing the same name, Blackie’s Beach. Being very close to the sand and the Newport Beach Pier, many who live in coastal Orange County have many fond memories of visiting Blackie’s, especially near their 21st birthday.
