The Bungalow is known to Santa Monica citizens as one of the most populated bars on the Westside. Its brand built on surf culture, Baja California and a quality sunset over the Pacific leads locals and visitors alike to keep coming back to the inviting venue attached to the Fairmont Hotel. With summer just around the corner, The Bungalow has a new draw with the launch of their Night Market—a weekly event featuring a selection of LA’s best food trucks. Learn more about The Bungalow’s plans for a bustling, beachside summer event.
For those looking to get their weekend started early, Thursday nights at The Bungalow are the place to be with their Night Market launching on May 16th and running through fall. The free KCRW-sponsored event will stake its claim on what is currently the Bungalow’s parking lot, which normally houses valet cars along with a line of people that snakes through the space on weekends. The unstoppable Bungalow crowds are sure to appreciate a new reason to stop by and take advantage of an additional space to hang out along the iconic Ocean Boulevard.
Running each week from 5-10pm, the Night Market will take on a different tone than the bar to attract foodies of all ages craving street eats and families searching for a fun summer activity. Picnic tables will be set up throughout as guests can try different tastes from some of the best food trucks in the city. Buzzed about Mexican food favorite Tacos 1986 will be a part of the menu along with popular vegan food truck ManEatingPlant. Opening night will include a special acoustic performance by Grammy Award-winning singer Macy Gray, with further live music performances expected to be announced in the future. DJs from KCRW’s schedule will also be playing hits as guests enjoy casual bites in front of an LA sunset.

Brent Bolthouse & The Bungalow
Bungalow visionary Brent Bolthouse joined designers Studio Collective to open up the now iconic indoor-outdoor space in the summer of 2012. Since then, the beloved brand has expanded to include another location in Huntington Beach with additional venues in La Jolla and Long Beach scheduled to open by the end of the year. Guests flock to both of the current locations to take in the quintessentially Californian vibe while sipping drinks in a welcoming, beachy environment.
Bolthouse is also known for creating exciting events and is recently coming off the heels of the success of the annual Neon Carnival Coachella after party. The 2019 event included an encore with a second round of festivities occurring after Goldenvoice’s other desert festival, Stagecoach. Bolthouse plans to make Night Market a staple in the Santa Monica summer scene alongside the first ever Santa Monica LGBT Pride festival arriving in June and the return of the Santa Monica Pier Twilight Concerts in August.
