Jackie Says: Shade Hotel Redondo Beach offers the Live Jammin’ music series at Sea Level Restaurant & Lounge on Thursdays and Fridays from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. This location serves as the perfect seaside destination for family and friends to get together, enjoy sweeping marina views, gourmet bites, and a glass of rosé or handcrafted cocktail while taking in the melodic beats of some of Southern California’s top bands.

Jackie says: In addition to having pretty much every beer in the world, Naja’s also offers live music every Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Naja’s is the ultimate harbor dive bar – it’s a fairly raucous scene and the acoustics leave much to be desired… but it’s a completely unique South Bay institution, adored by all and a favorite stop during a Strand Cruise!

Jackie says: This casual, funky, neighborhood bar and restaurant has quickly become the hottest spot to get your groove on in the South Bay. They host both live bands and DJs and regularly have events like ‘Flash Back Friday’ featuring music of the 70s and 80s. Put on your dancin’ shoes and plan to shake your booty into the wee hours! This place is a ton of fun!

Jackie Says: The Standing Room offers acoustic sets Tuesday through Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. During the weekends, they feature bands coming through town on tour. There’s an impressively stocked bar, full menu, plenty of seating and dancing is encouraged. I like the feel of the space: brick walls, high ceilings, reclaimed wood. A great spot to kick back and enjoy a craft beer or house cocktail after a day at the beach. Don’t miss the South Bay Jam on Thursday nights at 9:30 (mostly locals) or Sundays at 5 p.m. (musicians from outside the bubble, but great none-the-less!).
