Get the door, it's the liquor store
Gardena is one of those names everyone’s heard and for a good reason. This little city within a city sits in the middle of the action. SpaceX is several blocks to the northeast. The Pacific is a couple of minutes west. Downtown Los Angeles is a mere 30 minutes in... bad traffic. The legend about Gardena’s name is that early settlers found it to be the only patch of greenery in the area during the dry season. Today, it’s practically an ethnic enclave for Japanese Americans, with a higher concentration than any other U.S. municipality aside from Honolulu. Check out the Japanese Cultural Institute for some ever-present cultural and social fun and learn more about Japanese migration to Gardena. The eastern edge of town is home to two casinos: Larry Flynt’s Lucky Lady Casino and the Hustler Casino. Whether that’s a Yay or a Yikes for you, both casinos bring in tons of revenue for Gardena and attract people from all over — all the better to keep this lovely city running the way it does. Drizly serves Gardena with on-demand alcohol deliveries. Simply find your favorite beers, wines and liquors on our online store and we’ll have them to you in under an hour.
