5 Points Plaza: Surf City’s Signature Shopping & Dining Destination

One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given is this: when traveling or looking for amazing shopping and dining hotspots, always ask the locals where they go. Nothing beats a great local reputation – and few retail developments in Huntington Beach have enjoyed such a long history of success as Surf City’s iconic shopping center: 5 Points Plaza, located on Main Street at Beach Blvd.

A neighborhood fixture since 1961, 5 Points Plaza showcases national retailers including Bath & Body Works, Big 5 Sporting Goods, Charming Charlie, Chico’s, Loft, Gap, Gap Kids, Pier 1 Imports, Styles for Less, Tilly’s, Trader Joe’s, World of Earth Footwear, Vans, and Zumiez alongside local favorites such as Affinity & Co. Jewelers, Kahoots Pet Store, and The Wedding Day.

Enjoy diverse dining destinations like the fresh fish artistry of Hashigo Sushi or authentic south-of-the-border fare at Mario’s Mexican Food & Cantina. A favorite among locals, Mario’s is known for their epic portions, long happy hours, and their killer “create your own” margarita, made with Mario’s signature mix.

Newcomer Lemon Thai Cuisine features a bright, cozy dining area and an extensive menu which includes all of the regular staples plus unique items such as Crying Tiger BBQ Beef, Roasted Duck Curry, and plenty of vegetarian options.

Relax on the recently renovated patio – complete with beautiful teak tables and chairs – or catch the game on the flat screen while enjoying one of Java Bakery Cafe’s signature sandwiches and fresh-roasted coffee creations. Or cool off on hot days with a sweet, healthy treat at Yogurtland.

Life’s little necessities are easily handled with one stop at 5 Points. AT&T, Bank of America, Chase Bank, 5 Points Cleaners, The UPS Store, and the optometry office of Dr. Jon Yamane are all located here, making the weekly errand list a snap!

Anyone who appreciates jewelry knows that its value often extends far beyond its appraisal price. More than being decorative or functional, the jewelry you cherish may symbolize the events and memories of a lifetime. The Lowenstein family, owners of Affinity & Co. Jewelers, have been making and selling jewelry for four generations. Whether you’re looking to establish your next family heirloom or searching for the perfect set of wedding rings, they will help you make the perfect selection.

Speaking of weddings: The Wedding Day is a full service bridal boutique that has been helping brides find their dream dress in Orange County for over twenty years. Their warm, intimate setting and knowledgeable bridal consultants make outfitting the entire bridal party an exciting and pleasurable experience.

5 Points Plaza has all of your beauty bases covered. Enjoy the deluxe services of Main Stage Hair Salon and Trisara Nails & Spa, and stock up on all of your favorite supplies at Bath & Body Works.

5 Points is also home to CloudMover Day Spa, “where the locals go” for skincare, facials, massage therapy and body treatments. Visit Phenix Salon Suites at 5 Points for access to a bevy of talented stylists.

Holiday shopping is a breeze when buying for kids (Big 5 Sporting Goods, The Children’s Place, Charming Charlie, GAP Kids, Tilly’s, and Vans) as well as adults (Charming Charlie, GAP, LOFT, Styles for Less, and World of Earth Shoes).

5 Points Plaza, in partnership with Tilly’s and Vans, is proud to host community-friendly events such as the annual Learn to Skate event, where local skating celebrities coach area youth on their skateboarding skills while spectators enjoy live music, food, and a festive atmosphere.

In keeping with Huntington Beach’s designation as one of California’s most dog-friendly cities, 5 Points Plaza has created the “Barking Lot,” where you can dine alfresco or simply hang out with your pooch. 5 Points is also the “Top Dog” sponsor for the Waggin’ Trails Rescue Foundation’s annual “Wags n Wine” event, raising tens of thousands of dollars to help local animals.

5 Points Plaza features ample parking, a friendly neighborhood environment, and great customer service. Gift cards are available from the 5 Points concierge located in Titanium Tickets, who can answer almost any question you may have or get you great seats at the hottest concerts, shows and sporting events.

There’s something for everyone at 5 Points Plaza – where convenience, style, and flavor merge beautifully on the corner of Main Street at Beach Blvd.
