Shopping in Manhattan Beach - Shop Local

19 May 2021 Written by Published in blog

Manhattan Beach has some of the best food, beach, and, of course, shopping in the South Bay. Take a day to walk through Downtown Manhattan Beach located only a short walk away from the Sea View Inn and check out our local coastal boutiques.

 

If you’re looking for some chic and trendy clothes head over to Manhattan Beach’s The Beehive or their sister store Wright’s to find the cutest new California styles.

 

If you need some gifts to bring home for friends or family from your California vacay go to Tabula Rasa for our favorite beachy home essentials.

 

If you’re on the hunt for a bikini to soak up the California sun check out Founded 1912, a new swimsuit boutique with all the coolest brands.

 

Finally, if you need a new book to read while tanning on the beach, head on over to Pages a small business book store in Downtown Manhattan Beach.

But First, Coffee!

If you’re like us, you love coffee! We love coffee in the morning, during that later afternoon lag, and even at night after a fantastic meal. Fortunately, The Sea View Inn at the Beach sits close to many of the South Bay’s finest coffee shops. Many of these amazing places are even within walking distance of the hotel. The Coffee houses not to be missed are 

Two Guns Espresso – less than a 2-minute walk from the hotel 

Peets Coffee – Peet’s is just a few blocks to the south in Downtown Manhattan Beach 

Smokey Hollow – It’s a drive, but it’s a short one and well worth it - 118 Sierra St in El Segundo

The Green Store – Hop on a bike and ride to 2151 Hermosa Ave, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254

Don’t forget, The Sea View Inn offers incredible bikes to all our guests at no charge!

Neighborhoods

Only an hour to the north of The Sea View Inn you’ll find the iconic Malibu Beach. We obviously love the beaches and vibe of Manhattan Beach more than what you’ll find in Malibu, but a drive down PCH to our sister beach in the north is pretty special.  For those of you that make the trip here are our top 5 favorites in Malibu!

  1. John’s Garden – This one-of-a-kind sandwich shop is the perfect post-surf destination to grab a bite and do a little people-watching.
  2. Zuma Beach – We prefer this spot over Malibu Beach, especially for families. More parking, fewer rocks, and wonderful waves.
  3. Malibu Farm – If seeing the Malibu Pier is important to you make a reservation at the Malibu Farm! It’s on the pier and the food is outstanding.
  4. Pointe Dume Natural Preserve – This amazing hike enables you to burn a few calories and take in great views.
  5. Nobu Malibu – Before you head back to the MB swing in for a drink at Nobu. You’re certain to see celebrities and a breathtaking ocean view.

Come for the beach, stay for the beer?

Los Angeles is slowly, but surely, opening up again - outdoor dining and unique events popping up all across the city. The Sea View Inn, Manhattan Beach is in perfect proximity to countless activities that are safe and enjoyable for everyone. First off there is a rooftop film festival setting up shop at the Manhattan Village Mall parking structure, which is the first-ever drive-in independent film festival. Along with this is the various new restaurants and shops opening up in the Mall after massive renovations have taken place for most of 2020. Some of the new restaurants include Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Silverlake Ramen - both Angelino fan favorites. Finally, an upscale pop-up market with unique vendors is also taking place at the Village Mall on February the 6th, perfect for a casual stroll through some of the most unique and classic LA shopping opportunities. All of these events, and more, are taking place within five minutes of the Inn! You will love the South Bay and all that Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, and Redondo Beach have to offer.
