After many years of great burgers, beers, etc. this place closed. The owners of Sharkeez bought it, and kept it open as is for a while. Now being remodelled.

Cool bar on the Pier Ave strip in Hermosa Beach. Open air dining in the front with good food options. Sit at one of the tables overlooking Pier Ave below.

One of the Best Happy Hour's in Hermosa. Fish Taco's are some of the best in Hermosa. The 2nd story open air view of Pier Ave comes in second, right behind Hennessey's. Great place to people watch.

I found this bar/restaurant by accident, but I'm glad I did. Being originally from Boston, I was glad to find a place like this in California. The atmosphere reminded me of Sports Bars back home with Bruins, Red Sox on the big T.V.'s which were...More
