A true dive bar overlooking the the docks. A little sticky and if you have to use the bathroom, do so at your own risk. Tap list is extensive and they get some great events. Large pours only and unless it is dead, service can be a miss. Not a bad spot.
Nice little place with marina view.
80 plus taps though only a few hidden gems and only one bottle menu with a mixed selection. Slow service even though not busy. Crappy cell coverage and no free wifi. Okay if you are in the area.
I went out of my way to get to this place on a tight schedule and quickly realized this wasn’t the kind of place to visit with a tight schedule. The setting is really nice right on the water with a view of the boats in the harbor, but this is deceiving. It’s actually situated in the middle of a tourist trap of a shopping center in Rodondo Beach. Parking was a nightmare (and expensive) and the crowds were annoying, even in the middle of February. Once I got to the place it all was good. There was a live band and a chill atmosphere, but a 5 minute line at the bar for brews. The tap list was awesome with lots of local brews I hadn’t heard of, but there wasn’t a lot of time to ask the bartender about them since there was a line behind me… anyway, they have some bottles here as well and they definitely seem to put a lot of thought and care into their selection specializing in local SoCal breweries which is really cool and nice especially for visitors which I expect they get a lot of. Overall, this is a place that’s nice to visit if you’re there doing the other touristy beach stuff, but not worth traveling to if you’re just doing a beer run.
Wow, what an amazing place. Recommended by BeerandBlues2, thanks for that! If 88 taps don’t satisfy you, there are a slew of interesting and often overlooked bottles. Barstaff Matt went the extra mile, with generous samples and extra large pours. Plus, he knew every beer on the lost backwards and forwards. Scruffy interior with corrugated steel and My Sharona playing on the jukebox, and great location right on the harbor. Unbeatable.
We’ve been stopping at Naja’s for over 20 years now. We’ve seen it go from a complete toilet to an above average place to enjoy some great craft beers and sunshine on any given afternoon. The food is so, so, we always get the chicken kebab plate, the small plate is more then enough for my wife and I. The beer selection is about second to none in the greater Los Angeles area. Lots of specials and rare stuff hidden out of sight, you just have to ask and if they have they are sharing it. Music on the weekends is always a blast. The staff has always treated us as if we were family. Great place, I would say an almost must visit if your passing through Los Angeles.
Visited many times over the past 5 years. I actually heard about this place because at the time I was looking for some of the early Vertical Epics and they still had bottles of the 03. Actually their horrible website (which has been updated finally) still had the 02’s listed as well as the original Sawyers Tripel and a few other noteworthy bottles. By the time that I got there they were gone but I also didnt care all that much anymore. The tap list and atmosphere as well as the scenery are awesome. Well, the tap list isn’t always awesome but there are enough things to pick from that you can always either find something new or find a stand by that you know you’ll enjoy. The food is decent; typical greasy pub fare. The live music is a nice touch some times. It’s more of a popular bar than a beer nerd destination but that doesn’t take away from the experience. Parking sucks but there is a large parking lot next door. Prices are high on the bottles but reasonable on draft and food.
