eHarmony is the unbeatable way for most guys to meet cougars in Long Beach for a relationship (try it free)
There are several great options to meet cougars in Long Beach when you're going out but you only have so much time and money you can spend. If you REALLY want to meet a lot of single cougars you need to be smart and efficient with your time. That means checking out eHarmony.
A lot of cougars have stopped spending time in bars and clubs and ONLY meeting single guys online to find a relationship. They're busy too and being able to connect with men, especially when they want to date younger guys, makes their life (and your life) a LOT easier.
If you haven't tried out online dating yet to meet cougars you're missing out on a TON of opportunities!
There are a few reasons why we've found eHarmony to be the best option for most guys and why it's at the top of our rankings for the best cougar dating apps and sites:
You won't find more Long Beach cougars who want a relationship on any other site or app
There are other options out there that have more people using them but actually finding single cougars can be very time-consuming. Even if you find attractive women over 35 using them you never really know if they're interested in dating younger guys.
With eHarmony, every woman using it is VERY open to a serious relationship with both younger and older guys and they aren't afraid to show it! No other option out there has more REAL COUGARS that you can actually meet up with.
These women actually want to meet up and there's a great variety
It doesn't matter how many people are using an app or site if all the women are just there for attention. Most of the bigger free apps out there are filled with time-wasting women who just want to collect compliments.
In our experience, the women on eHarmony are MUCH more engaged and actually want to meet guys in person. Why else would they use such a specific site?
If you haven't tried eHarmony, you absolutely should. It's a great experience for most guys and a combination of time spend in our favorite places on this list and eHarmony is a recipe for success!
Tracy’s Bar and Grill where many cougars in Long Beach hang out
Spend enough time with cougars in bars, and you’ll notice that they love singing their hearts out in karaoke. That’s one reason why Long Beach cougars flock to Tracy’s Bar and Grill, which holds karaoke nights twice a week which is a great place to practice your skills when learning how to approach and meet cougars!
Unlike other cougar bars in Long Beach, Tracy’s serves great drinks while remaining family-friendly. It’s perfect for breakfast and lunch, but to catch the more mature crowd, head here during the evenings.
Cougars also swear by the food at Tracey’s. It’s much, much better than what you’d expect from typical bars. Their food is always well-prepared and comforting. We can’t get enough of their burgers, garlic fries, and chicken tortilla soup.

The Guide to Cougar Dating in Long Beach
We showed you where to meet some of the hottest Long Beach cougars. Now let's assume you were fun, cocky, teasing, assertive, and got her number. Let's also assume you charmed her off over the phone and she laughed so much over text she decided to go out with you.
Where would you take her?
A bar, a restaurant, a movie theatre... So many options that will confuse you especially if you're new to dating or haven't dated somebody in a while. That's why we're here....
We divided your first-date experience with Long Beach cougars into three types depending on your goal and her blueprint. Here's how:
If you just want to keep it casual take her to a lounge
If all you're looking for is a fling, or if she seems receptive to sleeping with you early on, then why waste more time. Take her to a cool romantic bar close to your place and charm the pants off her.
The goal is to build comfort and intimacy. Once done, you can move her to another bar or walk by your place and invite her up. Easy.
These are our favorite romantic bars and lounges for dating cougars in Long Beach:
- Boathouse on the Bay - 190 N Marina Dr
- Padre - 525 E Broadway
- Saint & Second - 4828 2nd St
- The Exhibition Room - 1117 E Wardlow Rd
- Ballast Point Brewing - 110 N Marina Dr
- VUE - 2640 North Lakewood Blvd
- Mezcalero - 525 E Broadway
If you’re more serious about dating her try a comedy club, piano bar, or fun activity
If first-date intimacy isn't on your list, or if she can't spend the night for some reason - kids, work...etc - then opt for a romantic mid-day activity. Something safe, but still fun and build comfort. Like the ones on this list:
- Cal Bowl - 2500 E Carson St, Lakewood
- Pelican Pier Pavilion - 411 Shoreline Village Dr
- El Dorado Park West - 2800 N Studebaker Rd
- Laugh Factory - 151 S Pine Ave
- The Long Beach Antique Market - 4901 E Conant St
- Bluff Park - 2500 E Ocean Blvd
- The Queen Mary - 1126 Queens Hwy
- Long Beach Museum of Art - 2300 E Ocean Blvd
If she’s very old school you can always do a
dinner date (but that isn’t recommended)
I don't like restaurant dates but some women prefer it, especially cougars. Some like it to brag around their friends while others use it to size up your wallet. Regardless, if a restaurant is your only option then try one of these:
- Tantalum Restaurant - 6272 Pacific Coast Hwy
- 555 East American Steakhouse - 555 E Ocean Blvd
- Queensview Steakhouse - 435 Shoreline Village Drive
- Nick's on 2nd - 4901 2nd St
- Michael's on Naples Ristorante - 5620 2nd St
