Hi, my family and I are going to be staying in Hermosa Beach for a night before heading down to Newport/Laguna area.
Any suggestions on where to eat or a fun place to have drinks? Looking for places with a good atmosphere to hang out and relax. I saw that Hennessy's Tavern has an open rooftop with views of the ocean. Is it a good place or what other restaurants have great views and outside seating?
Also, I booked our hotel at the Quality Inn & Suites Hermosa. Thoughts on it? We were told it is .5 mile from the beach. Easy walk? Clean? Safe to walk at night?
