The Triangle is celebrating its 25th anniversary with Sizzling Summer Sounds, a weekly music series kicking off July 12 from 5 to 8pm, and continuing every Wednesday evening through August 23. The live music, held in the upper level courtyard between Saddle Ranch Chop House and La Vida Cantina, will feature guitarists, duos and solo artists performing a variety of genres to appeal to everyone in the community.
The schedule of performances includes:
- July 12: Back to the Beach! Surf Classics
- July 19: Reggae & Calypso Steel Drums
- July 26: 70s Troubadour Guitarist
- August 2: Classic Country
- August 9: Latin Pop
- August 16: Classics from the 80s and 90s
- August 23: Romantic Latin Duo
The Triangle will also be doing an enter-to-win contest each week throughout the music series, with the winners receiving gift cards from restaurants and shops at the dining and entertainment center.
Built in 1992 as a downtown hub for shopping and dining, The Triangle is now a popular dining and entertainment center, offering multiple restaurants and venues that can only be found at the Costa Mesa center. The Triangle is home to the only locations for La Vida Cantina and Time Nightclub, as well as Orange County’s only location for H20 Sushi & Izakaya, and Tavern+Bowl, a boutique bowling alley and restaurant.
California’s first Keys on Main, a dueling piano bar, is expected to open in early 2018 on the lower level of the center, at Newport and Harbor boulevards.
“The Triangle has been reimagined to focus more on dining and entertainment to meet the changing needs of consumers,” said Wil Smith, founder and president of Greenlaw Partners, which owns The Triangle. “With the proliferation of online shopping, we’re providing visitors with a fun destination to create memorable experiences that can’t be purchased online. Our summer music series is a perfect example of providing entertainment to be enjoyed over dinner on one of our restaurant patios, or before bowling or catching a movie followed by dessert at Creamistry.”
The Triangle is conveniently located at the end of the 55 Freeway, where Newport Blvd., Harbor Blvd. and 19th Street intersect. The center offers seven levels of free parking, as well as a Valet on the street level near Tavern + Bowl. The center also has a VIP Program offering discounts to various restaurants.
