Our Story

“Original Mike’s resides in what was Santa Ana’s first Buick-Horseless Carriage Auto Dealership built in 1919. 100 South Main Street was, and still is, the heart & soul of downtown Orange County. Renovated after being abandoned for over twenty years, Orange County’s major developer, Mike Harrah, completely restored this historic location into what you see today. This 15,000 square foot entertainment center houses several rare antique cars, including the Original Santa Ana Fire Truck No. 1!

Original Mike’s features 3 spectacular bars, 3 separate Live Entertainment stages & 3 dance floors. Dining Out Magazine voted Original Mike’s its No. 1 rated bar & restaurant in Orange County for 2006 & 2007.

Throughout the main dining room are rare vintage photos of the downtown Santa Ana area. Bricks from the adjacent building, dating back to the 1920’s were recycled to create the huge outdoor patio, Palm Court Oasis.
