Clancy's is the ultimate dive bar. The place smells like it's been there before time was invented. A few too many stiff drinks, pool tables and a few tv's is all you need to escape the beautiful outside world and dive head first into a drunken stooper alongside the alcoholics of Seal Beach. If you need some dive bar therapy go to Clancys and drown your sorrows in your drink of choice. Make sure to drink a 32 oz. gaterade and 4 advil before you finally go to bed unless you want a hang over from hell. You wont find me here on a sunny day...

The thing about dive bars is people usually either love them or hate them. I think they have their place. The drink prices were reasonable but not cheap, the people were friendly and there were games to play (board games, video games, pool) if that's your thing. A relaxing, low key place to stop if that's on your agenda.

I was drawn in to the music (jukebox not live), ended up staying until closing.

bartender was friendly. Ended up chatting with a local.

Evidently can get a little rowdy when Navy is on shore leave.

It was a little loud, but nothing close to rowdy that I saw.

Has pool table, and games. Drink pricing is competitive. Happy hour deals are good. Crowd can get rowdy, especially when a ship is in town.

With four friends we rode bikes from Huntington Beach along the boardwalk to Seal Beach on a sunny Sunday afternoon and began our annual bar crawl. Clancys was one of the hot spots as it was around Halloween and customers and staff alike were dressed in costumes give it a festive air. The drinks were reasonably priced (as were the shots of tequila) and the music made for an overall nice vibe. Clancys welcomes locals and tourists and treats them all like friends.
