Ercoles is a wonderful, really old, hometown bar. We've been stopping in about once a month since 1967! Yikes, should I admit that? Everyone is very friendly, seats are a bit hard, but that's part of the fun.

Ercoles ("UHR-co-lees") has been in the same location since 1927. It is a bar with a limited menu of food (but check our Wednesdays, featuring 2-for-1 burgers, and Tuesdays and Thursdays featuring chicken or steak tacos). Lots of locals, but also friendly for visitors.

This is a landmark in downtown MB ... and it is what it is ... A dive bar, fantastic drinks, great bar food, and fantastic people watching. Not young crowd, but if you want any of the above ... a great place to hangout.

While the town (and world for that matter) are being overrun by restauranteurs and chefs battling it out for who can make the most pretentious Brussel sprouts or taking once fun bars and turning them into a reservation-only hipster meccas, ya gotta love the places that have managed to stay tried and true. Manhattan Beach doesn't have many of the... More

This is a small, very low key dive bar. Great place to grab a beer or two with friends. Also, not bad for quick bar food. Definitely a locals only vibe.

Erc's has been around since the 20's. There are lots of great places to eat and drink in Manhattan Beach, but I keep coming back here for one of the best burgers ever, good drinks and nice people. Plus it's cheap (really cheap) and pretty much free of trendoids.

If you want a taste of what old time Manhattan Beach was like--or just want a really good hamburger--check out Ercoles. I grew up in Manhattan and it's changed a lot over the last couple decades. Thankfully, Ercoles has not. My brother and I stopped in for a beer and a burger on a beautiful Saturday. We'd been out in... More
