Tavern’s storied history and beachfront location makes it a “must”. Open for some 54 years now, the sports-bar-meets-food-meets beachgoersmeets-one-and-all hangout is known as the place where beach volleyball tournament winners from 6-Man and the AVP hustle in for a champagne celebratory tradition. Shifting to the other beach shopping district, the North End, OB’s Bar and Grill is a casual low-key restaurant/bar with nightlife, a place where jeans, shorts, and

For sure, Manhattan Beach is more than just fun in the sun! It’s a place where the ocean meets the shore, entrepreneurs create and thrive, the arts inform and add distinction, culture continues to be laid-back, and locals keep the heart and soul of a one-ofa-kind community going strong.
