You're looking for a pretty cool spot where there is almost no tourists in Santa Monica? The Bungalow is kind of a beach house where it is good to party and chill.
Each room is decorated with the Californian culture: surfboards, photos, trinkets. You will also find pool and ping pong tables.
The crowd is quite young and beautiful, always ready to have fun. This place is a must. We love the vibe. BTW the owner is behind Neon Carnaval at Coachella.
PLAN B: they have a second location in Huntington Beach.
