Surfing all day, playing beach volleyball, or just catching up on your tan can work up quite an appetite (and thirst)!  When you’ve had enough of the sun and are looking for a place to recharge for the evening, look no further than some of our favorite local haunts:



Combining art shows and craft beer, everyone’s favorite new brewery has a patio overlooking the ocean and special events throughout the summer. Currently featuring an art show by Derek Billings, bring your thirsty friends and try tasting one of their famous IPAs. 327 Manhattan Beach Boulevard, Manhattan Beach


Tower 12

Priding itself on “Delights for the Hungry Surfer”, this local establishment on the Hermosa Pier is a crowd favorite.  Try the overflowing charcuterie board or the insane double cheeseburger, and enjoy house-made cocktails, wine, and over 30 local beers on tap.  53 Pier Avenue, Hermosa Beach


Lil’ Simmzy’s on the Deck

Kids in tow?  We’ve got you covered.  Bring the little ones and your beach crowd to Lil’ Simmzy’s at the Point, where you can imbibe on their famous wings, the ever-popular Blue Cheese Haystack fries, and a refreshing beverage.  Craft beer comes straight from their brewery and is as cold as you imagine.  850 South Pacific Coast Highway, El Segundo


Metlox Plaza

At Metlox Plaza in the heart of downtown Manhattan Beach, you’ll find three inviting restaurants that are sure to satisfy your parched palate after a day at the beach: Nick’s (for classic American comfort food), Petros (Manhattan Beach’s beloved Greek hotspot), or Zinc (everything from brunch to small bites to dinner) at the Shade Hotel.  All three feature outdoor dining – but make a reservation to guarantee a spot!  451 Manhattan Beach Boulevard, Manhattan Beach


Hudson House

A beloved restaurant + bar in Redondo Beach, Hudson House reflects the surf culture of SoCal with displays of local artists and photographers, all within a surf shack vibe.  Happy Hour is a must here, with an outdoor patio, great food, and amazing cocktails every Wednesday through Saturday.  514 North Pacific Coast Highway, Redondo Beach
