The Blue Beet Cafe, 107 21st St., Newport Beach. Open daily, 11:30 to 2 a.m. (714) 675-2338. Tucked into an alley between storefronts facing the Newport Pier, this bar isn't the easiest to find. But its friendly, good cheer makes it worth the search. Patrons are mainly young and single, and there's usually a guy in the back room playing the guitar.
