Midwest chowhound here. My sister is getting married in Manhattan Beach in October. I'm looking for a place to host a cocktail evening (after the family rehearsal dinner) and I would love recommendations from some LA chowhounds. Can be casual (just not divey) or upscale -- my first priority is *good*. Most people are staying at the Shade or Marriott, so close to that would also be nice. We'll have about 30-50 people attending. On my list so far (though I haven't checked with anyone directly yet):
- Manhattan Beach Brewing Company
- Hennesey's Tavern
Alternately, do people ever have events on the beach?
Thanks in advance for your help!
