Following an absolute scorcher of a weekend, L.A.'s going to be even hotter today, with less stifling but still warm temperatures carrying pretty much through the week. We hope you found a way to enjoy the "summerlike" conditions of the last few days with something involving a beach and encourage you to head for the coast while they last. You may not be able to ditch work or school for a full day at the beach, but you can at least get close enough to one at some point to appreciate it, specifically over food or drinks. To help you make this happen, we've rounded up of our favorite spots for boozing at dining by the beach, from Malibu to Marina del Rey. Whether for beach day grub or post-workday drinks, check out L.A.'s 16 best beachside bars and restaurants.
