Friendliest bar in town! Can’t get enough of this place. A classic and local favorite. Be sure to try their Gyros and Sangria! — Sevren Smith (Facebook)
Best sangria and greek food in town! We love coming to this place! The owner is awesome and all of the ladies who work here really make it great. Awesome happy hour too, it’s a must when you’re in Newport! — Mary N. (Yelp)
Comfortable chairs and couches, awesome atmosphere and decorations, good drinks, good company, and bar employees that are happy to toss a free one your way for being a good, loyal customer. This isn’t your typical Newport bar experience, and to me, that’s a great thing! — Brian L. (Yelp)
Hands down my favorite bar in Newport Beach! Fun atmosphere, great jukebox, gorgeous bartenders…what more can you ask for?!!! — Gemini Pankey (Facebook)
Aurora is one of the BEST spots to hang, dance, meet cool folks on the Peninsula. From Kayte to Dani and Valerie — everyone here makes you feel like you’re home. The jukebox is always full of awesome tunes and dancing is encouraged. Even if you can’t dance (like myself), you’re encouraged to groove and there’s never any judgment! The sangrias are yum and the Mediterranean menu is a perf complement to drinks. Come here once and you’ll be a regular — fantastic customer service, good food, yum drinks and music to keep you moving! — Elle D. (Yelp)
Best bar/restaurant/lounge Newport has! Great drinks (especially the sangria), awesome bartenders, and the crowd is always friendly. Definitely a staple of the peninsula any day of the week! — Mary Nye (Facebook)
My boyfriend and I LOVE Aurora! The owner, Katie, is so sweet and always makes you feel so welcome! She has her hands full when its busy but is always is in a good mood! The prices are normal, food is good and the mixed sangria is large, delicious and pretty strong. The feel of the restaurant is so cozy and warm. Definitely a breath of fresh air in a beach city with a lot of the same type of places. — Megan H. (Yelp)
its the perfect spot. its like the peninsula family room. everybody gets along, extremely comfortable setting. great owner and bartenders! — Vadim Gorash (Facebook)
Great local bar that you can actually get a seat in and have a good conversation. Great atmosphere and good vibe. You must try the sangria! So delicious!!! — B. Nom (Yelp)
