Come here on a clear Saturday afternoon, and Malibu Wines is admittedly a real scene. But when that scene involves drinking lots of white wine and picnicking with friends on the grass, you somehow always manage to tolerate it. The entirely outdoor space is much bigger than it looks, with two wine bars, a performance space for nightly concerts, and an upper picnicking area with fantastic views of the mountains. As popular as it is, Malibu Wines remains one of the easiest escapes from LA.
