"LA Okayplayers...I need food/lounge/bar suggestions."
So, my job transfer went through and I secured a loft in San Pedro. I'll be moving at the beginning of September, but I don't know much about that area. So, I'm looking for suggestions/insights on my new hood. What you know good?

That's the closest thing to you in San Pedro. You're about a 35 minute (traffic free) drive from Downtown LA. Long Beach is a college town, so depending on your age you'll be just fine or miserable. Check out Downtown Long Beach - there's lots of bars/restaurants, etc.

I'm just trying to keep it low key. I'll definitely be checking out Long Beach b/c of proximity. However, my best mate is in Santa Monica. So, I know half the time I'll be trekking up to her. She's pretty much a newbie as well. So, I'm not limited to that area.

But it is maybe 35-40 minutes from Downtown L.A. It's actually the easiest straight shot ever down the 110, and that makes it 45-50 min from Hollywood. But DT Long Beach, the Pike area, caters more to you.
