10 Beach Bars You'll Want To Wade Into


Sometimes it's great to get all dressed up and hit the town. Other times it's really great to just show up in whatever you feel like and grab a drink with your friends by the beach. 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. Locals and tourists tend to love these 10 bars for their choice locations, relaxed atmospheres and the cool crowds they tend to bring in night-after-night. Each bar on our list has something unique to offer. A couple of these spots exude a quirky style and beachy vibe that has all kinds of folks meandering through their sandy doorways day and night. Others completely immerse themselves in the beach lifestyle sporting tons of surfboards and shark decoration. Then there are the bars that truly give you that amazing West Coast ocean view. These spots are regularly jam packed with Instagrammers snapping sunset pics and enjoying the ocean breeze. Even though each of these bars are absolutely different in their approach to what makes an awesome beach bar, one thing ties them all together. These are the best of the best.
