A classic blend of Long Beach's past and future
As downtown's main business anchor this street has all the international flair and bravura of a classic European quarter, yet its name—Pine Avenue—speaks of its uniquely American roots. Historic buildings from the 20’s and 30’s, carefully preserved, house modern businesses and restaurants.
Pine Avenue offers visitors one of the best selections of fine dining and entertainment choices found in Southern California. A sample of the street’s restaurants, many of which offer patio dining, include Rock Bottom Brewery, The Federal Bar, L'Opera, George’s Greek Café, BO-Beau and King’s Fish House. Entertainment options are equally impressive with nightclubs like Alegria and Café Sevilla, which feature live flamenco dancers. Many of Pine Avenue’s restaurants feature live entertainment and dancing.
Pine Avenue is an easy walk from downtown Long Beach’s many attractions, including the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, Aquarium of the Pacific, Shoreline Village and The Pike Outlets.
Because of its role as downtown's centerpiece, Pine Avenue hosts a variety of special events throughout the year. “Thunder Thursday” on Pine kicks off the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, “Taste of Downtown” offers musical entertainment and a chance to sample the best of the Avenue’s cuisine. Pine Avenue’s New Year’s Eve party is a 3-block long extravaganza of music, food and entertainment that draws thousands of revelers each year. Long Beach Transit and LA Metro even extend bus and light rail hours to get party goers home safely.
