It's time for holiday parties and special events, and there's no better place than Manhattan Beach to entertain your group. From small, intimate spaces, to large ballrooms, there's a place - and a menu - to suit just about any gathering. Here's a guide to get you started:

BLVD: This one's a little different, but a fun idea: BLVD is offering private "Sip and Shop" parties for up to 15, where they will close the store for you and your group, provide food from Un Caffe Altamura, style you from head to toe, wrap up your gifts, and hand deliver them if needed.
