August Spotlight: Spectacular Summer Specials Around Marina del Rey

Keep soaking in the summer vibes, Marina del Rey—because our gorgeous town (and the swell towns around us) are dedicated to keeping the season going for as long as we can. All around us, the best restaurants and lounges are pumping out excellent summertime specials that seem to make the sun shine a little brighter. And as a summer advocate, you definitely want to partake.

Here are five spots touting some of the most awesome summer options—dig in!

13534 Bali Way, Marina del Rey

SALT’s table-side Bloody Mary cart will no-doubt last beyond the season but it still screams classic summertime. Your custom Mary starts with your choice of spirit (the house infused cucumber Absolut® Elyx vodka is so good), a selection of “enhancements” (hot sauces, spices and citrus) and finally, the garnish decision. Boom. Your own blend of perfection.


Jamaica Bay Inn
4175 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey

Head to the Jamaica Bay Inn’s Beachside patio tomorrow (August 15th) from 5pm to 9 pm for their seasonal summer BBQ. What’s cooking? How about expertly prepared brisket, decadent macaroni and cheese, corn on the cob, hot links, and much more. Call 310.823.5333 for details.


Whiskey Red’s
13813 Fiji Way, Marina del Rey

Oh boy, summertime Tuesdays are definitely something to celebrate thanks to Whiskey Red’s. Make a stop there after work tonight and enjoy a refreshing, summer cocktail special for just $8. Just two of the scrumptious featured drinks include Peach Mojitos and an unbelievably good Sangria enhanced by elderflower essence. See you there!


Chart House
13950 Panay Way, Marina del Rey

If you love to treat yourself to a little Chart House action now and then, make sure you get there while their summer menu is happening. Highlights include the divine Sugarcane Shrimp Satay (gingery and delicious), the light and refreshing Summer Picnic Salad (that watermelon basil vinaigrette is great), and the house made ice cream with flavors like blueberry hibiscus, saffron corn and roasted peach & thyme.


Tallula’s Restaurant
118 Entrada Drive, Santa Monica

Meanwhile, up in Santa Monica—you’ll want to check out Tallula’s on August 19th for a special summer Sunday Happy Hour event. To be one of the chosen invitees, all you need to do is participate in a beach clean-up with the Rustic Canyon Family & Surfrider Foundation. Call Tallula’s for more details on how to join in!
