3. Baja Sharkeez

Address: 52 Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach

Los Angeles locals have been fleeing Sharkeez over the last few years. This bar has become a haven for naïve L.A. transplants and the South Bay's broiest bros. It's customary at Sharkeez to find spikey haired, wannabe “surfers” wearing board shorts and flip-flops on a Saturday night. They've come from various South Bay cities to stalk their prey: the jello-shot guzzling gals that arrive in flocks. Frat guys and newly-legal girls love this place for the cheap booze and party-type atmosphere. Everyone else loves this place for rounding up the worst people on Hermosa Pier and keeping them there for the night.
