There is always something old and new at the Lighthouse. The sound is great, the place has a different vibe every night of the week and the staff makes you feel like a local. This is a good time place to hang out, listen to jazz, rock or reggae and enjoy bar and grill food with friends!

Stopped in for some great traditional jazz at the Lighthouse on Sunday afternoon. Good service, reasonable drink prices, and a great nostalgic way to relax at the Hermosa Beach.

We love this place for the live jazz performances on Wednesday evenings and Sunday brunch. It is an older crowd at these times, and service is understaffed, consequently overworked and not as attentive as we'd like. Still very friendly. Typical pub style brunch offerings done well. Great Bloody Mary.

Live bands 7 nights a week. No cover. No karaoke thank God but you can sit in with the band Thursdays and sing. Sheet music is provided. Order whatever beer is on special as the prices are ridiculous.

The Lighthouse Cafe is a jazz music legendary location from the 60's. So many concerts there were recorded over the year. Unfortunately, jazz is only available a day or two a week there now, but the venue is a terrific place to see live music of any genre. I was in town on business and decided to go to their... More
