Modern Times’ Leisuretown is a 33,000 square-foot brewery, restaurant, and swim club located in Anaheim. This attraction features a mid-century modern home, a swimming pool, and “multi-story outdoor seating” for drinkers, diners, and swimmers.
In 2014, the Mayor of Anaheim wanted to bring more breweries and distillers into the area; a move to encourage this began, including the elimination of red tape, procedural bottlenecks and other problems that stood in the way of beginning a new alcohol-based business in the area.
That effort resulted in some 20 craft brewers beginning operations in Anaheim. Leisuretown is one of those who came to do business.
In July of 2020, a press release was issued announcing the grand opening of Modern Times’ Leisuretown, “After four years of construction and restoration”. COVID-19 didn’t stop the facility from opening, but operations were definitely scaled back with respect to public health. Now that there are vaccines and unrestricted travel has resumed, Leisuretown is reopened to the public.
Today Leisuretown is described as an “aquatic party palace” featuring a full-scale brewery and beer garden, a pool, and bar service featuring more than 70 taps. Some of the beer is locally brewed, but there are plenty of other selections from San Diego, Portland, and elsewhere along the coast.
There is a great variety of typical bar-type events here including pub trivia, beer takeovers, tastings, and pop-up events. You can also do non-alcohol-related events in the café; there are coffee tasting events, special monthly coffee releases, and merch.
The food menu at Leisuretown will be especially attractive to anyone who needs vegetarian or vegan-friendly options; the entire Leisuretown menu posted online is plant-based. If you can’t stay or want to take Leisuretown fun home with you, there is a minimart featuring Modern Times products and Leisuretown products you can buy for yourself or as gifts.

549 South Anaheim Boulevard
Typical operating hours are 10 AM to 10 PM.
