Summer’s just heating up, but thanks to a returning nightlife partnership it’s set to be scorching: Santa Monica mainstay the Bungalow teamed up with beloved radio station KCRW to throw a night market every Thursday just a block from the beach.
KCRW’s no stranger to killer programming and putting on a great party (see also: Summer Nights), and now, every week at the Bungalow you can expect KCRW DJ sets, plus to-be-announced bartender takeovers that take over the Fairmont Miramar scene. Once all that dancing’s worked up an appetite, you can hit the food trucks and take a seat at one of the picnic tables spread throughout the space (or, you know, just camp out at a picnic table all night long—we wouldn’t blame you if you’re just here for the food). Food vendors include Tacos 1986, Cali Dumpling, Gooey Center Bakery, Chimmelier and Lobsterdamus.
What’s more, this event is family-friendly and free to enter for all ages. The fun runs every Thursday into fall, from 5 to 11pm.
