This is the kind of bar you search out and can never find anymore. Ercole's is a throwback bar in one of the hippest and trendiest towns in the world! The crowd is like clockwork: the older locals hang out for Happy Hour 3-6 then the 30-40 aged working crowd start showing up after work and finally at about 9 PM the bar turns into the trendy young beautiful people crowd. All three groups tend to mingle quite well and it just works itself into a loud happy vibrant beach crowd party.
Drinks good and stiff. Happy hour prices excellent for Manhattan Beach. Service awesome; bartenders and manager all locals with years of service. Food is simple but outstanding examples: 3 Tacos for $5 Taco Tuesdays and 2 for 1 Burgers on Wednesdays. Martin the main chef can cook up some mean tacos, dogs, and burgers.
Bar itself has a main bar, tables with benches and some booths, a few TVs, pool table, and music machine. Crowds big on Friday nights, weekends, and major beach events.
If you want the real Manhattan Beach, visit Ercole's. If you want fancy and pretentious go to The Strand House.
