Dive Bars

Although most of the dive bars in Manhattan Beach have evaporated due to the recent gentrification, you can still find some authentic neighborhood watering holes such as Ercoles and Grunions there. Strongholds such as Barnacles and Hermosa Beach Yacht Club have resisted the tides of change, as have ultimate dives such as Pat’s II and The Bull Pen in Redondo Beach.
