Moonshadows, Malibu

Malibu boasts one of the most exclusive beachside enclaves in the U.S., and Moonshadows is a different kind of beach bar. Located just off the Pacific Coast Highway, the terrace of this venue literally hangs out over the Pacific.

The blue-hued lighting, the location and the upscale vibe make this one of the more date-worthy bars on our list. This is a popular place for guys to pop the question — but you don’t have to get engaged to get a table here. You can just come for the creative contemporary cuisine, the awesome cocktails and the great Malibu views.
