Nightcaps in Hermosa

Here are three signature drinks in Hermosa Beach that will help give you sweet dreams. Plus, add your local favorites in the comments below.

Each week, Hermosa Beach Patch publishes a roundup of local happy hours and drink specials. This time, the focus is on where to grab a nightcap—here are three Hermosa Beach hot spots that allow you to do just that:

Goin' full circle with coffee

Hennessey's Tavern on Pier Plaza offers a signature Buena Vista's original Irish Coffee on its menu. Wind down with the same beverage you often use to start your day—but with a twist. The Irish coffee is made with Irish whiskey, fresh coffee, sugar and whipped cream, according to the Hennessey's website.

Sweet ending

When Palmilla Cocina y Tequila first opened in Hermosa Beach, Patch recommended its Mexican hot chocolate martini, which remains a favorite. The drink is made with Cazadores Reposado tequila, disaronno originale and crème de caco chilled, shaken and served up in a chilled glass swirled with chocolate syrup and topped with a pinch of hand-crushed chipotle powder.

A tradition

Many locals often gather at one Pier Plaza venue for a nightcap: Mermaid. Patch's former nightlife columnist Danielle Lenglet once recalled noticing a group of people walking toward the downtown bar one night.

"Time for Mermaid," one man said. "Because you gotta end it with the best."
