The Shack  review image

The Shack

Perfect For:Sports!

Playa del Rey is still a tiny beach neighborhood that feels perpetually trapped in the year 1967. The Shack is among a handful of places doing their very best to keep it that way. The beach-themed bar in the heart of PDR is actually a lot bigger than it looks from the outside, thanks to multiple nooks and crannies, and a big back patio for people who want to eat delicious, hot link-topped burgers and scream at football. NFL Sunday’s are definitely the biggest days here, and word to the wise, the crowd gets passionate.
