Big Dean’s Oceanfront Café

Pre-dating the Santa Monica Pier itself, this now-kitschy sports bar has been a beachfront institution since 1902. They didn’t even get their first icebox until 1913. It’s not necessarily a spot you’ll seek out for the mixology, but enjoy the sunshine, ocean breeze and sense that you’re hanging out in a spot that has hosted 115 years’ worth of Angelenos before you.
