Our Story

Sitting pretty on the corner of the iconic Pacific Coast Highway and 2nd Street in the Belmont Shore neighborhood of Long Beach, you will find The Bungalow Kitchen. Helmed by award-winning Chef Michael Mina and hospitality veteran Brent Bolthouse, The Bungalow Kitchen is a project several years in the making. This is the most inspired restaurant project we have ever been a part of and feel lucky to finally share it with all of you. We’re the type of place where you feel the exclusivity of a secret hideaway with the comfort of lounging at your best friends’ home. You’ll want to eat too much and stay all night and we welcome it.

Your Community Clubhouse

The eclectic atmosphere is the perfect backdrop for our California Cuisine. Heavily inspired by local, seasonal ingredients our menu pairs beautifully with an expansive wine list as well as our classic cocktails. Giving a nod to the Long Beach community’s rich architectural history and punk-rock edge, we put a raw, original spin on the traditional California bungalow. You’ll discover something new with every visit, from eccentric furnishings you would find in your favorite musicians’ home, to unique and carefully curated pieces of art. It’s these thoughtful details that all marry to create an ambiance that is at once refined yet familiar, with a rock-and-roll twist.
