South Bay Scream, Richard Blade At The Redondo Pier & Hermosa Beach Bar Parties
Especially if you’re single.
That’s because the people of the South Bay love to dress up and go to Halloween parties. There are not house parties all over the place like there are for the Fourth of July, but rather events at bars, a screamin’ party that is not at the Portofino this year, a haunted hotel and several more events.
So put on your costume, grab your witch’s brew and get to know what’s happening in the LA Beach Cities of Hermosa, Manhattan & Redondo Beach for Halloween & Halloween weekend.
But before reading this, take this PubClub tour down The Strand to check out these “scary” houses!
Friday, October 26 South Bay Halloween Events
• Redondo Beach Pier Costume Contest
It goes from 7-9 and is free. This is outdoor on the pier and while there’s no beer garden or anything, it’s a good warmup to what comes next in the night.
• South Bay Scream (The Portofino Party)
The premier Halloween party in the area is happening on this night. If you’re single, chances are you’ll be at this party. This year it’s moved from the Portofino to Alta House in Hermosa Beach (formerly Ocean Bar, so a great location) . Tickets are $40.

Naughty Nadia and Radical Ramona will be mixing and serving the “poison of your choice.”
Free costume party with certain drink specials. This nice bar on the water in front of the Portofino hotel will have a good group of locals – and some boat skippers and crew from the King Harbor boats – looking for something kind of low-key but also fun.
