In addition to boasting beachy shopcation locations, SoCal's coastline has been making waves for its major retail renovations—like Pacific City, that 11-acre lifestyle hub in Huntington Beach that's set to open next summer. Now comes news that the oceanfront shopping/dining center will also add nightlife guru/epic desert party planner Brent Bolthouse's second The Bungalow location to the mix.
Located around the bend from surf-friendly shopping stretch Main Street and steps away from all those to-be-confirmed boutiques, the Bungalow 2.0 at Pacific City will "pay homage to Huntington Beach's 'Surf City history'," per a release. The luxe lounge first brought its vintage vibes and cool-kid cocktails to stylish SaMo staycation spot Fairmont Miramar Hotel two years ago; its Orange County digs are expected to open with the rest of the retail/resto/residences center next year.
