08 Apr Oceanfront Dining, Shopping and Entertainment The Consummate Pacific City Experience
Situated at 21010 Pacific Coast Highway at the heart of Huntington Beach, Pacific City remains the consummate oceanfront dining, shopping and entertainment experience in this area of southern California, all realized as a high-end beachfront mall providing trendy retail outlets, an array of restaurants and even miniature golf opportunities.
Soaking in the SoCal life has never been like this, what with eclectic shops, outdoor dining, motion pictures on the patio and inviting spaces to just chillax – something us southern Californians take very seriously. With over 62 stores, it’s easy to pick up a last-minute gift or engage in a trendy fashionista’s fantasy shopping spree at H&M, Urban Outfitters, Sunglass Resort, Molly Brown’s Swimwear and Tommy Bahama.
A genuine culinary experience awaits at LOT 579, what with an artisan market inspired by locally-sourced food indulgences, demos and retail shops, while jaw-dropping views of the rich, startling Huntington Beach sunset await from the deck area. Indeed, to say there’s always something going on at Pacific City is something of an understatement.
How it All Began
Pacific City was actually the original name given to the early oceanfront village that would eventually become known as Huntington Beach. According to history, the brains behind the project loved the name – as well the opportunity that came along with it – and began crafting plans to create a 31-acre piece of land fronting Pacific Coast Highway, situated across from the iconic Huntington Beach Pier and the strip of sand that Time Magazine recently named the “Best Beach in America.”
Envisioning a “city within a city” became the driving force behind the project…one where a bright future for art, leisure, creativity, community and commerce could be thoroughly brought to life and realized. In a proverbial nutshell, a vibrantly rich and awe-inspiring attraction that celebrated the unique and natural beauty surrounding it.
Enter Pacific City
Pacific City’s retail hub plays host to 191,000 square-feet of unique shops, an upscale Equinox fitness facility and spa, an exciting collection of first-to-market dining spots and quirky eateries boasting the most progressive menus and lavish environments and, of course, the aforementioned LOT 579. This truly standalone artisanal market and California culinary experience with multiple food purveyors offers everything from gourmet sandwiches to the freshest ocean-to-table seafood, beach fare elevated to creative culinary heights across categories including tacos, meat pies, fresh greens and the artistry of the perfect cup of coffee – to say nothing of the multiple options for grabbing a simple cold beer and perfect burger.
The outdoor environment defining Pacific City is no less impressive, boasting sweeping vistas and views from every plaza, deck and patio. On any given day, throngs of visitors and locals can be seen strolling through the complex while experiencing the beautiful, indigenous landscaping, relaxing in comfortable outdoor lounges, enjoying the fire pit in the evenings, viewing the sunset from the deck or watching the outdoor cinema screen in pure amazement.
Music, “pop-up” events that surprise and excite for scant moments before new ones take their place and an embodiment of the best SoCal culture has come to represent are all here on full, vivid display – freedom, creativity, entrepreneurship and an intangible quality coveted around the world for its “cool” factor.
