Best of the Beach 2016, Best Neighborhood Bar: Ercoles
Even with the passing of longtime owner Gary Moore last September, Ercoles continues to hold fort in a rapidly changing Manhattan Beach.
“We are excited to carry on for Gary,” said manager Dennis Scott, who’s been going to Ercoles for 30 plus years. He’s a part of the family as his wife, who is Gary’s niece. “We want to carry on the tradition of being the neighbor bar and food establishment in the sweet world of Manhattan Beach.”
Free pretzels and cheetos at the bar and specials like Dodger dogs for a dollar, two burgers for the price of one on Wednesdays and three tacos for $5 on Thursdays have preserved Ercoles reputation as the beach’s most popular neighborhood bar.
“Our employees take pride in making the best and most affordable food for the neighborhood,” he said. “We enjoy pouring quality nice drinks that everybody can partake in.”
Ercoles Bar, 1101 Manhattan Ave., Manhattan Beach. (310) 372-1997.
