The Lounge in Manhattan Beach

The Lounge (located at Manhattan Beach Toyota) aims to produce visual stories (videos) about the people and places in the South Bay. The Lounge takes its name from the venue which is packed with huge murals, photos, memorabilia, a bar, seating area and workspace offices all resembling the South Bay. Our dream of having this space is coming true. Special thanks to Brad Sperber and the team at Manhattan Beach Toyota for helping us turn this dream into a reality.
