Tower 12 review image

Tower 12

We have pretty specific requirements for our post-beach eating spots: casual, full of cold beer, acceptable to wear a bathing suit under our clothes, and most of the time, a great burger. Tower 12 in Hermosa Beach hits all of these things, making it a pretty great weekend hangout, even if you have an irrational fear of sand. Up a flight of stairs on the second floor of a prime spot on Hermosa Pier, this bar and restaurant gets pretty busy with the drinking crowd on weekends, and is an ideal place to post up most of the day for beers and the Tower 12 burger - a fancy version of a Big Mac that’s much better than your last drunken drive-through trip.
