Barney's Beanery has taken over a new spot at the Redondo Beach Pier. It's not heavily advertised, just yet, but the many out-of-state license plates have already been used to decorate the location. These are a part of the tribute to the original location opened over 90 years ago in West Hollywood.
Owner David Houston stated that they didn't have enough room in the budget for signs, but that would be the first thing addressed when revenues start coming in. They also plan to cover the entire store in old car parks and Route 66 memorabilia.
The location is found next to El Torito Grill and across from Old Tony's. The view from Barney's Beanery through the large picture windows and from the patio provides one of the best views at the pier.
Barney's took over the old location of Kilkenny's Irish Pub, which was on the show "Bar Rescue," turned into Breakwaters Bar & Grill in 2012, but still failed. Houston took over the space and spent nearly $1 million to refurbish the establishment before opening.
This location seat 250 guests and will be open from 9am to 2am daily. Twelve TVs will be provided in "stations," which are perfect for groups to watch sports games, while they dine.
Houston has opened other successful locations in Pasadena, Santa Monica, Burbank, West Hollywood and Westwood. He seems to know the right time to move in before an area becomes a hot spot.
The menu will include an all-day breakfast section, burgers, salads, Tex-Mex and many different types of chili. When you first arrive at the restaurant, you will notice two vintage motorcycles at the entrance. One of the bikes appeared on the show "Sons of Anarchy."
If you’re looking for something new to enjoy, head out to Barney’s Beanery for dinner, a drink and a little social fun.
