Beach Nation is the new outdoor beach-style cafe on Santa Monica Boulevard, just blocks from Beverly Hills, Melrose and the Sunset Strip.

Plus a huge sand box right in the middle of the action — take your shoes off and feel the sand between your toes!
Summer never ends at Beach Nation. Perfect for all occasions and seasons, fit “a day at the beach” into your busy schedule, between errands, classes or business meetings — without having to trek all the way to the coast!

Beach Nation is located in one of the most famous and desirable neighborhoods in Los Angeles, sandwiched between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, blocks from Melrose and the Sunset Strip.
Designed and created by internationally acclaimed hospitality designer Thomas Schoos (Herringbone at the Mondrian LA, The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, Tao in New York and Las Vegas) Beach Nation is the result of a vision Schoos had to bring some of his favorite beach experiences to his own neighborhood in Los Angeles. The eclectic furniture and design adds a modern twist to the traditional beach bungalow vibe, giving the laid-back California lifestyle a progressive new attitude.
