Sophisticated socal meets beach bungalow

Part sophisticated SoCal restaurant, part international beach shack, Pacific Hideaway makes its presence known with a striking design, highlighted by a colorful, floral mural on brick known as Frida. Tucked unassumingly above bustling 5th Street in Kimpton Shorebreak Resort,  it's the little secret you hope not too many people find out about, yet you can't stop talking about.
