Hermosa Beach suggestions??

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?

THANKS!!

Hennessy's rooftop patio is a great place to hang out, one of our favorites for years. It's the original Henney's in a small chain. All you have to do is stand in the middle of the Plaza in Hermosa and choose another restaurant if you wish, most have outdoor seating.

The Quality Inn might be a half mile as the crow flies to the ocean, but if you head down Pier Ave. the main street, it's a bit longer, and all uphill walking back. No problem though, a taxi cab stand is right at the bottom of Pier Ave. There is also a public parking lot behind Hennesey's if you wish to drive.

Yes, the SoBay Beach cities are all clean and safe.

If you are a fan of Jay Leno, and you are in Hermosa on a Sunday, you might be able to catch his performance at a small club there:

Call for reservations and to make sure he will be there that night.
