The Queen’s Local Band Hangout

Long Beach’s iconic Queen Mary unveils their monthly “Local Band Hangout” event where up-and-coming artists perform in the ship’s striking 1936 Art Deco Observation Bar.

The concert series kicks-off on January 19 (8pm) with Halle Johnson and Black Noise, and continues the third Thursday of each month. Arrive early for Happy Hour (5-7pm), purchase your ridiculously low priced $10 ticket, and enjoy an intimate venue which is sure to please music-lovers and history buffs alike.

Formerly the Queen Mary’s First-Class Lounge, the chic Observation Bar & Art Deco Lounge is a beautifully designed slice of history, complete with original artwork, distinct torchiere lamps, and other handsome décor, giving the room a soft, retro glow.
