After a long hard day on the beach, what could be better than a cocktail or two to take the edge off? Fortunately, Manhattan Beach is not short of options to help whet your whistle. Whether you're looking for a refined experience or a neighborhood dive bar, we've got it all right here.


Ah, the quintessential Southern California beach bar. Founded by a surfing SoCal native, Simmzy's specializes in craft beer, wine, and local signature drinks. With indoor-outdoor seating, an ideal location just steps from the beach, and the requisite fun music, this is a popular hangout for beach locals. Hungry? The food doesn't disappoint either with famous burgers, tacos, and a weekend brunch that fills up early – so beat the rush!


Part tasting room, part wine store, and part craft beer and wine bar, Barsha has something for everyone. Refreshingly void of the sleazy pick-up crowd, this venue is the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon or evening with good friends over a few glasses of wine. The owners are usually present, sharing stories about their hand-picked wine selections and serving up eclectic (and delicious!) small plates including various cheeses, creative salads, and hummus. Tip: grab the couches in the front for the most comfortable seating in the house.

Ercoles 1101

Sometimes all you want is a good old-fashioned dive bar. Manhattan Beach has got that too in the form of Ercoles 1101, a local institution serving up reasonably priced drinks and comfort food in an unassuming beach-close location. Flip-flops and board shorts? No problem. A fun crowd and lively bartenders make this place an ongoing favorite for daytime drinks or pre-dinner fun. Bring cash and your sense of humor.

Perhaps the best part is that all of these places are close to The Sea View InnContact ustoday for more information on how to plan your perfect Southern California vacation.
