The Sunset is a wedding venue located in Malibu, California. Southern California style is on full display in this oceanfront beach bungalow. This venue provides a space to flawlessly blend casual Americana with each couple’s unique vision for their wedding day.
Facilities and Capacity
Ocean views from the vantage point of one of Los Angeles County’s largest and most well-known beaches provide the setting in which couples can recite their vows. Sparkling blue waters span as far as the eye can see. The sun shines brightly during the day but casts a distinct, multicolored glow as it sets on the horizon each evening. Beach ceremonies at The Sunset Restaurant are meant to accommodate up to 150 seated wedding guests. The outdoor lounge area provides a location to host a cocktail hour while still allowing your loved ones to enjoy the fresh ocean breeze. Couples can choose between two locations on the property for their reception. The banquet room holds up to 150 guests, however a dance floor may be added to the space, reducing the capacity to 120 seated guests. A tented outdoor gathering is another option and holds up to 300 standing guests. The panoramic views from the restaurant’s event space help to bring the outside indoors. Tastefully decorated with a neutral color palette, this space provides an opportunity to bring a couple’s personal aesthetic to their reception.
The Sunset Restaurant is available to host a variety of wedding-related events in addition to your ceremony and reception. They will be happy to hold your engagement party and wedding shower in this venue as well. All-inclusive wedding packages are offered in order to ease the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Ceremony packages include coordination of beach permits and liability insurance. White chairs for guests and wooden platforms on which the couple can stand are supplied for comfort and convenience. For the reception, the venue offers tables, chairs, a variety of tableware, and white linens. The restaurant’s bartenders and servers are available to provide their services for you and your guests.

Wonderful venue, Great Customer Service.
Teri, at the Sunset was incredible to work with. She was flexible with us as we had a very small wedding party and some unique visions for our wedding. It felt like she was a family member helping us with our wedding she was so supportive and understanding. The team at The Sunset Restaurant went above and beyond to help make our very special day perfect. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a beach venue for a small-medium size wedding.Sent on 06/27/2019

Had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Sunset Restaurant! Had 160 people and they accommodated them all in the side room and patio outside! The bar was fantastic, and food was amazing! All so fresh and tasty! We also had the Sunday Brunch after the Wedding at the Sunset and people were absolutely in awe of how beautiful it was. The event staff is amazing and takes a lot of the stress off of the bride and groom:) Thank you The Sunset Restaurant for being the dream come true for our wedding week!!Sent on 07/14/2016

We had a wonderful experience at this venue and I would highly recommended it for any event. We hosted my mother-in-law's 60th birthday party (it was a surprise) and everything went smoothly. The views and the venue are priceless and I would definitely go back for another event.Sent on 07/03/2016
Great service and attention to details for all their clients. From: Elegant Parties OC
As a Videographer of all kinds of weddings in southern California... a well done beach wedding can't be beat. The Sunset in Malibu has the unparalleled ability to be a VERY SPECIAL PLACE for the dazzling upscale wedding as well as that delicious smaller affair. The sand and the water and the proximity of the Sunset Restaurant is perfect... I should know, I have shot many weddings here. (As well, this is where I love to come and chill out at the end of the day... it is so beautiful and off the beaten path). The event team at the Sunset is super friendly and helpful... they will make this the wedding you've dreamed of. It's a truly wonderful spot. - Susan Metcalf Videography
Always a pleasure providing chuppahs for the Sunset Restaurant!
