Former Location –
Originally a restaurant built in the early 1920’s, the Golden Bear became one of the primary Orange County destinations in the 1960’s to hear up and coming groups.

At one time or another The Doors, The Byrds, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Ramones, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt, The Turtles, Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Garcia, B.B. King, Dave Mason, and Blondie played here. Robin Trower played the last show there on Jan. 29, 1986, and it was demolished some months later.
