On those nights, even if picking out your attire doesn't take a long time, finding the best beach bar to accommodate your needs might. Even with all the beach bars in Los Angeles, it's fairly uncommon that a spot can achieve that elusive quality of seeming very low-maintenance while still being a total hot spot. These 10 bars are the rare few that do beach bar breeze with a hint of elitism better than anyone else.
