Ah Naja's Place. This is the best beer bar in south bay. The location is great - right on the Redondo Beach Pier. Enjoy a beer while looking out at the Pacific Ocean.

Has a dive bar feel and look, but one of the best beer selections I've ever seen with 88 taps going. They have BMC, but also one of the older beer accounts with distributors in LA so they get a lot of rare beers that other places won't be able to.

What I love is that there seems to be always a few sours on tap, a ton of IPAs, and always something new that I've never tried.

The bartenders know beer. They will help you find the beer you like and will give you small tasters just to be sure.

The only ding that I have is that the food is not that great. The wings and tacos are good, but everything else isn't that great.

Overall, if you live in the area this should be your go to place for beer. If you are visiting LA, it's only about 20 mins from LAX so visit the beach and Naja's and kill 2 birds with one stone.

It's really hard to rate this place. The selection is obviously incredible and the best around hands down. But the crowd/atmosphere is not so great and seemingly not there for the ridiculous beer selection. I prefer going when it's less crowded so I can just chill out and really enjoy what I'm tasting.

Dingy old feel, I was the youngest person in there, best beer selection in south bay. Must go.

Very few women, however very few attractive women are into craft beer so that is a push.

Right on the water enjoy a nice ocean breeze, weekends have live music from a fun garage band.

Went there during their annual IPA Festival--over 70 IPAs on tap and 2-3 rotating on cask. Amazing selection, esp. of SoCal IPAs.

The place is right on the boardwalk. It has kind of a dive bar feel, but I kinda dig that. Then again, it's right next to the beach which helps, too. The place can be loud with music playing from a jukebox or sometimes a live band playing. There is a quieter side bar where the regulars hang out.

Had the kebab while I was there. Maybe I was a little tipsy, but it was awesome (great bar food, IMO!).

Great place--can't wait to go back!
