There’s a new instant-classic place to chill in Huntington Beach these days – The Bungalow.
A lounge with a private clubhouse feel…and a killer view of the HB Pier, it’s perfect for relaxing with a cool sangria, meeting friends, playing a game of pool or listening to music groups.
Announcing its presence with a pre-opening bash July 7th, the event benefited the non-profit Surfrider Foundation Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter.
Featuring Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger and Ben Kenney from multi-platinum-selling rock band Incubus, The Bungalow was jammed with people waiting to get inside.
Surfrider’s Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter Chairperson Tony Soriano was at the door eager to greet everyone and help get the party going.
Soriano told SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel that he’s excited about “the support The Bungalow is giving to Surfrider’s environmental cause and to the beach community.”
Located in the trendy, beach-themed Pacific City mall (21058 Pacific Coast Highway), The Bungalow is the vision of owner Brent Bolthouse, who has another The Bungalow lounge in Santa Monica.
Bolthouse says the goal of both lounges is to provide an “intimate setting” that’s like being in someone’s home. The 6,000-sq-ft.space is divided into separate rooms with sofas, comfortable chairs, pool tables, fireplaces, and a patio overlooking a million-dollar view of the beach.
Warm and welcoming, The Bungalow is just steps from the sand, making it an ideal watering hole for beating the heat and savoring the lounge’s craft beer and signature drink selections.
Add in an assortment of tacos, sliders and flat breads brought in from the lounge’s culinary partner The Bear Flag Fish Co. located downstairs and you’re all set.
Surfwriter Girls can easily see whiling away an afternoon or evening with Greg Kishel watching the beach action from The Bungalow’s patio or taking in one of HB’s picture-perfect sunsets.
With The Bungalow on the scene, now there’s another reason for everyone to say “We’re goin’ to Surf City, gonna have some fun.”
