Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles is a quintessential beach town, with sprawling sandy beaches and a boardwalk path (better known as the strand) that connects it’s pier to the other beach cities piers, Hermosa and Redondo. At the Manhattan Beach Pier, you’ll find The Strand House , a tri-level restaurant with two full bars and gorgeous views from the patios and indoor tables. We dined there recently, sat outside, and enjoyed a Patrón Silver and tonic and a delicious Patrón Reposado Margarita with agave and citrus sea salt on the rim. What a perfect spot for dinner and drinks after work, or a leisurely weekend lunch. If you find yourself there, be sure to take a stroll after your meal either on the pier or along the strand for a great view of an incredibly beautiful, sparkling beach.
