welcome to your  neighborhood great room!

 

South Bay's newest premium social gathering and dining experience.  Come relax in the lounge or have a party with us!

The Great Room Cafe opened in November 2016 by a Redondo Beach family for the local South Bay families! With everyone’s busy schedules and easy planning in mind, we have designed a fun social venue for the whole family!  TGR creates a carefree experience with playrooms that are intended for the younger patrons and the still-young-at heart, while the lounge and dining space can be enjoyed by everyone with a good meal and a glass of wine!  Dads can catch a game with their buddies and beer or mommies can catch up with friends while the kids play in their own space.
