If you need a dive bar in Manhattan Beach, Ercoles is where to be. The regulars drink cheap drinks and play pool in a space that looks like it’s straight out of 50 First Dates. There’s a small menu of grilled burgers and Mexican-ish food, all cooked on a grill behind the bar. Plenty of people will be eating, but you’re really here for the affordable drinks and the people watching.
