Beach Nation Cup

Your morning cup of coffee just became a calming experience. In addition, we offer fresh artisanal food like sandwiches and salads, plus a variety of pastries.

A day at the beach,

in the heart of the city

Beach Nation is the new outdoor beach-style cafe on Santa Monica Boulevard, just blocks from Beverly Hills, Melrose and the Sunset Strip. The spacious deck is an oasis in the middle of the city: waving palm trees, rustling sea grasses… a stylish beach cafe vibe created by famed designer Thomas Schoos. 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!

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.
