LOT 579 Food Hall welcomes foodie favorites including Bear Flag, Pie-Not, Hans’, PopBar, Petals & Pop, and BurntCrumbs…with more exciting eateries opening later this summer and fall!

SoCal’s most buzzed-about oceanfront shopping, dining, and entertainment destination, Pacific City in Huntington Beach, has today announced that its modern food hall, LOT 579, is now open. Named after the Lifeguard Towers 5, 7 and 9 located directly across from the culinary concept, the food and lifestyle market now serves everything from gourmet sandwiches to the freshest ocean-to-table seafood, fish tacos to Australian meat pies, cold pops and homemade ice cream to champagne. And, as more tenants open throughout the summer and fall, LOT 579 also will offer artistically brewed coffee, the perfect combo of a delectable burger and a cold craft beer, delicious pizza by the slice, fresh pasta, sweet baked treats and so much more.

“We’ve been able to carefully curate and hand-select new and tried-and-true culinary and lifestyle concepts to create a modern take on the food hall,” said Heather Hollister, Senior Vice President of Leasing for DJM Capital Partners. “The variety of food options, shopping, and ambiance throughout LOT 579 make it a singular SoCal culinary experience for all the senses.”
