Darling’s – CLOSED

The owner of The Hawk decided to open a second bar, Darlings, at the western nexus of Long Beach Boulevard and 14th Street. Darlings is Makeshift Art Deco with hand railings around the pool table that are met with dark woods and finishes; a 1940s pink toilet is surrounded by fish scale tiles in an asymmetrical pattern. It’s fancy in some ways but not to the point of discomfort; it is relaxed in many senses but not to the point where you won’t enjoy.
