Our Story

Our Story - Bartender Shaking Drink

Nestled among the many popular restaurants and bars that line 17th street in Costa Mesa, the site of The Country Club has been a haven for good conversations and libations since the early 1950s.

The fully remodeled space exhibits a classic ambiance and charm reminiscent of a time-honored social club. Our spacious dining room is highlighted by its authentic mid-century A-frame roofline that serves as a significant and visual center point of the historic building.

The location has gone by a few different names and iterations over its 60+ years before being reimagined as The Country Club. Housing decades of memories, its social heritage lives on for several more generations to come.

Large bi-folding doors and windows allow an open and seamless transition to the patio which features relaxed seating and the warmth of a flickering fireplace.

The Country Club is also a destination for after-dinner dancing, complete with live entertainment and exclusive VIP table services. We’re also uniquely tailored to accommodate large parties with party-specific menus and designated secluded spaces.
