A twist on the traditional hotel bar, the AC Lounge serves up beer from local breweries, specialty wines by the bottle and on tap, expertly made craft cocktails and a selection of tapas-style small bites. A nod to the hotel's European heritage, the lounge's signature cocktail, The Swedish Fish, was developed with Orange County's first craft distillery, Blinking Owl, and is a unique infusion of the Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit and garnished with its namesake candy. In the morning, AC Kitchen serves a European-inspired continental breakfast selection of flaky croissants, savory egg tarts and Nespresso coffee. The Berkel slicer, an AC Hotels staple, offers visitors hand-cut meats including artisanal La Quercia Prosciutto for a true taste of Spain. The AC Store, open 24 hours, also offers a selection of beverages including Four Sons Brewery beer, Cutwater spirits, wine by the bottle and soft drinks as well as a variety of premium snacks and sweets.
