The Bungalow, a popular destination for expensive cocktails and people-watching, is expanding to two new locations along the Southern California shoreline.

Brent Bolthouse, owner of the Bungalow Hospitality Group, will open a new location in Long Beach and another one in San Diego’s La Jolla, over the next two years, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Bungalow Long Beach will take place in an 8,000-square-foot space in Belmont Shores. It is slated to open in the fall of 2019, and feature expansive views of the harbor.

Further down the coast, Bolthouse is opening the Bungalow La Jolla. At 10,000 square feet, the bigger San Diego spot will include an expansive outdoor space and views of downtown. That’s set to open in late 2019, or early 2020.

Chef Michael Mina, best known for Bourbon Steak and Cal Mare, will oversee the menu and specialty cocktails for both new locations.

Venice-based Studio Collective is designing both properties.

The new locations will complement the Bungalow Santa Monica and Bungalow Huntington Beach, which opened in 2012 and 2016, respectively. Its flagship location in Santa Monica has an expansive outdoor space just steps from the Fairmont Miramar resort. [HR]Natalie Hoberman
