Bars / Nightlife

The South Bay has more bar and nightlife options than most other regions of Los Angeles! If you need to be in the middle of the action, there’s a crowd at Sharkeez in Hermosa Beach every single night of the week- or you can relax in a quiet dive with a ridiculous view like Old Tony’s in Redondo Beach. For every other option in between, the Beach Cities have all you could ever ask for, including dance clubs, karaoke nights and sports bars. Use the filter to narrow down the plentiful options!
