Fine Dining, the Malibu Way (in Ripped Jeans)
At this perfect place for a drink, sit outside on the all-white patio – in a wooden booth or on one of the comfy cubes or day beds – while DJs set the mood and waves crash nearby. For those who like to party, Moonshadows is open until 1.30am on Fridays and Saturdays – an extremely late closing time in Malibu, where early dinners and drinks are the norm and most establishments draw their shutters at 10pm or 11pm.

The romantic lounge is built right on top of the Pacific, and you’ll hear the waves crashing below you as proof. With a Mediterranean-influenced menu and an extensive drink menu to leave you satisfied, a sunset and live DJ will finish off your evening with a sexy atmosphere.

"Moonshadows: #11, World's 50 best beach bars"
Although it now has a lot more competition than when it opened its doors some 40 years ago, Moonshadows continues to score because no one else has quite such a dramatic outdoor bar perched right over the rocks and crashing surf along this stretch of Pacific Coast Highway.

Once a steakhouse renowned for its awesome salad bar, it now pushes seafood, though carnivores will find Kobe burgers on the menu.

The Blue Lounge Bar is open seven days a week from before lunch to the small hours, though it may no longer serve the pina colada-ish Moonglow old hippies used to rock up for.


“Best Bars by the Beach”
Perched atop a jutting piece of California coastline in Malibu, Moonshadows has one of the most coveted decks in Los Angeles. This place is always lined with luxury vehicles, a waiting list, and multiple celebrity sightings in one visit. But, don’t let this detract you from a visit. The view alone will get you hooked and the food is pretty good as well. And, as always, there is plenty of premium alcohol to choose from.


“Featured Dining”
Situated on one of the prettiest perches along the coast, Moonshadows (20356 Pacific Coast Hwy., Malibu, 310.456.3010, has always had the advantage of a superb location, but it wasn’t until current owner Andrea Bullo took it over in 2001 that the food quality found equilibrium with the views. He describes his approach as a restaurateur as “simple, but appealing,” which is evident in dishes such as the occasional-special hamachi in eel sauce with black lava salt, and menu-staple black cod with green tea rice.
