Wonderful little place in Mahattan Beach - it's tiny but cute There's a exclusive club upstairs. Fantastic drinks, friendly staff, VIP area upstairs. I wonder what that is all about?

Great little bar, friendly bar tenders and it feels like a secret place sometimes.\r

Fun place, can get crowded quickly

The Side Door is one of the best places in the South Bay- The place is chill during the week with a late night crowd-and on weekends- it's a great place to have a meal/app with someone new-and then come back for the party late night!! On

Stopped in the Side Door for dinner and drinks with friends after work and the atmosphere was cozy and inviting. We came back on a Saturday night and really enjoyed the vibe of a weekend hot spot. The music, food and staff are great.

Pros: Best martinis! Best service!

Not only are the Martinis delicious, but the service is great! Stopped by on a Wednesday night with friends and had dinner (didn?t even know they had food!). The Tuna tartar and meatballs are excellent. Some of the only GOOD house music in

Pros: Nice local bar, great service, and yummy martinis!

My favorite martini at Side Door is the Champagne Martini! Side Door is very small, but never seems to be overly crowded. The vibe is like any other martini bar, upscale and usually a sexier crowd than the neighboring bars. Overall, I

I used to come here all the time. They just got remodeled and have a nice decor plus there is the private club upstairs. It is a nice, mellow place and not too much of a scene. Overall, though, I think that service is key and the main

I've always liked the Side Door, but last night while trying to have a nice quiet drink with my girl, there was this idiot DJ blasting some sort of INDUSTRIAL DANCE thumping b*llsh*t music. This is no longer a romantic place. Two

Pros: Nice blue candle-holders on the tables

If you're into intimate down tempo house music then this is the place. It's really casual and friendly...reminds me a lot of the DJ bars in London. It's def not the place to be ALL night. My fiance and I usually have dinner at Penny Lane,

Some friends and I stopped in on a weekday night after dinner at Mangiamo's. The design and lack of any identifiable sign led us to step in. Luckily, they had our favorite rum - Sailor Jerry's - and we stayed for a drink. The ambience

Very small indeed. We went here as a "starter" place before we went out, but it is small, very few seats, crowded and loud. We ended up only having one drink there because it's so loud (since it was so crowded) that it was hard to hold a

Nice little place in Mahattan Beach - and I mean little. This place is very cozy - and definitely gets a little too crowded on weekends. There's a exclusive club upstairs. We asked one of the bartenders, the yearly membership is
