This Manhattan Beach dive bar has been a staple for locals since 1927. Nondescript and proudly showing its age with initials-etched into wooden booths, Ercole’s keeps regulars happy with its legendary burgers, which some like to swear are the best in LA. A dubious claim, but you can hardly argue with thick, juicy beef (fresh from next-door gourmet deli Manhattan Meats) and toppings piled high. The prices are reasonable across the board—pair your burger with a cold beer, or opt for a Dodger dog. Better yet, step in at the right times for the best deals, like $9 pitchers at happy hour (10am-6pm daily). With a crowded pool table in the back, classic tunes from a jukebox and a diverse crowd evenly split between salty old-timers and bro-y surfers, there is no lack of character. Cash-only, but there’s an ATM inside and several banks are walking distance.

Pretty standard bar in MB – good for drinking before heading to the next bar! They are a cash-only bar so come ready for that. It’s not ever ridiculously crowded so you don’t have to fight to get your drink and you can always play pool in the back as you wait for your group of people to all come and meet up. The bar could use some music for atmosphere appeal, but again, as far as being the bar to meet at before heading to another bar, it does its job.

Best bartenders anyone could ask for and an atmosphere remnicent of Cheers! It's a place to go whether with friends or flying solo, you'll always walk out with a feeling of home.
