They say there are those who've never seen San Pedro in the daytime.
That's because they just come for the nightlife.
Could be because there's plenty going on in the area most every night.
The First Thursday of every month is the Art Walk and restaurants and bars have special entertainment (and usually special offers) to celebrate the night. You'll find all the action in Downtown between Palos Verdes Street and Pacific Avenue generally between 5th and 9th Streets.
The Whale and Ale British Restaurant and Pub always has entertainment, along with a starving artist's special.
San Pedro Brewing Company features a DJ for First Thursday.
Godmother's Saloon usually has live entertainment.
And the Art Deco showcase that is home to It's Showtime at the corner of 8th Street and Pacific Avenue often opens its downstairs speakeasy for great live music in an intimate setting.
Through the rest of the month and every week you'll find fun entertainment and nightlife throughout the area.
The Whale and Ale features jazz on weekends.
