This Four-Stop Date Night in Manhattan Beach Is Sure to Impress

Written By: Taylor Gorski Manhattan Beach Date Ideas

Change up your date night this week with an eventful (but chill) evening in Manhattan Beach. Lucky for us Californians, winter date nights can still take place outside with views of the ocean, festive cocktails and outdoor strolls—just don’t forget a light jacket! All four stops on this epic date night are walking distance from one another; with just steps to the next destination, your sweetie will be swooning. Trust us, it’s a night that’s sure to impress. 


1 | Drinks at Rock’N Fish Manhattan Beach Date Ideas

First stop: Cocktails and apps 

Rock’N Fish is celebrating their 20th anniversary with $7 specials all November long. Start with the oak-grilled artichoke appetizer and enjoy a Navy GROG cocktail with a take-home, limited-edition anniversary glass both for only $7. A 20-year commemorative GROG hat is also available, which is a perfect souvenir to remember the night. Cheers!

2 | Dinner at The Strand House Manhattan Beach Date Ideas

Second stop: Dinner and views 

With stunning views of the ocean, The Strand House in Manhattan Beach is a perfect spot for date-night dinner. Cuddle up and order the TSH Hot Buttered Rum cocktail (made with housemade buttered rum batter, Myer’s dark rum, housemade whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg) to warm up on the cool SoCal evening. Enjoy delicious dishes like branzino, grilled Spanish octopus and wild mushroom tagliatelle.

3 | Walk Down the Pier

Third stop: Ocean walk 

Just steps away from The Strand House is the Manhattan Beach Pier. Take a walk down the pier and watch the winter waves crash on the shore. The boardwalk also boasts beautiful views of the big blue. We suggest picking up a latte or scoop of gelato from Gelato’s Angels before hitting the beach.


4 | Stay at Shade

Fourth stop: Stay the night in MB 

Extend your date night with a stay at the Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. With the Fall in Love package for couples, it’ll be a romantic night to remember. You’ll be welcomed to your room with rose petals sprinkled throughout the room, complimentary sparkling wine, chocolate-covered strawberries, cake-pop turndown service and a surprise “Keep it Interesting” item. Spa tubs, ocean air and comfortable king-size beds are just a few of the perks to look forward to.
