Manhattan Beach Community Considerations

A Thoughtful Approach To New Outdoor Dining Spaces

Outdoor dining in Downtown Manhattan Beach has been an exciting addition to our community. We have designed an upgraded outdoor dining experience that benefits both the community and Manhattan Beach Businesses. Some of these considerations include the management of outdoor spaces, keeping views clear, access for pedestrians, revenue generation for the community and more.

Managing Outdoor Spaces

To create an enjoyable outdoor dining experience throughout Manhattan Beach, outdoor dining decks should adhere to specific size and aesthetic guidelines. This will ensure outdoor spaces don’t impede pedestrian traffic or block other retail locations, allowing Manhattan Beach Businesses an equal opportunity to benefit from new spaces.

Upscale Aesthetic

Designing a stylish, modern and uniform outdoor dining aesthetic will complement not only Manhattan Beach’s picturesque views but also the community. These new luxurious outdoor areas will create opportunities for Manhattan Beach Businesses to attract new visitors and create new spaces for the community.

Maintain Views

Manhattan Beach is known for its incredible ocean views and sightlines. The projected designs for the new outdoor dining areas will be built to preserve these fantastic views, only enhancing your experience in the city.

Pedestrian Access

By keeping the outdoor dining area a uniform design, we ensure that pedestrians will be able to move around and access all the Manhattan Beach Businesses with ease. New design plans preserve pedestrian walking space and will be consistently maintained.

Prioritize People

The Manhattan Beach community is our number one priority, which is why we want to put people first. Right now, parked cars have the best views in the city. We strive to change that by giving those unmatched views back to the people with this outdoor dining project.

Revenue for Our Community

Revenue for our community: With most neighboring communities creating outdoor dining models, it will be tough for local businesses to compete without a plan. Our outdoor dining proposal will create a positive revenue model for the City of Manhattan Beach and the local businesses in Manhattan Beach to help them recover from tough times during the pandemic and ensure a sustainable and successful future beyond the pandemic.

Help Us Save Outdoor Dining

Manhattan Beach City Council voted to remove the outdoor dining decks on January 3, 2022 with no plan for permanent replacements.

Aside from the safety benefits during this ongoing pandemic, outdoor dining has become a blissful way to enjoy our local restaurants.
