Note: Avalon doesn't have listed street addresses, but all these bars are within stumbling distance of each other on the main drag. The Chi Chi Club (tel. 310/510-9211), the "noisy bar in Avalon" referred to in Crosby, Stills, and Nash's song "Southern Cross," is the island's only dance club and quite a scene on summer weekend evenings -- the DJ spins an eclectic mix of dance tunes. Luau Larry's (tel. 310/510-1919) is Avalon's signature bar that everyone must visit; its tacky tiki theme and signature Wicky Wack drink kicks you into island mode as soon as you step inside. Go where the locals go and swill beers at the Marlin Club (tel. 310/510-0044), Avalon's oldest drinking hole, or catch the Dodgers game at J. L.'s Locker Room (tel. 310/510-0258).
