About James Beach
Welcome! Our History: James Evans met Daniel Samakow at this location in 1982 at the West Beach Cafe, and in 1996, in the same restaurant in which they met, they opened James’ Beach. For 23 years James’ Beach has been a special place for both them and their guests; and as a result, it has become one of Venice’s most popular institutions. Our Place: James’ Beach is our haven of modern American food, well made craft cocktails, an award winning wine list and great times. Open to the fresh ocean air with palms swaying and signature “swim trunk” lamps glowing above, entering James’ Beach is like going for a fun day at the beach, not to mention the quintessential Venice party destination. We are part of Venice and proudly support many local organizations and maintain the authentic spirit of Venice. James’ Beach status as an iconic Los Angeles gathering place and its Venice Beach vibe has made it a favorite venue for every type of special event. James’ Beach has been “the” perfect spot for hosting events and parties for a myriad of renown artists and celebrities; mixers and launch celebrations for our entertainment and tech enterprises; birthdays, showers and every type of special occasion by our huge base of regular fans and new guests. Our Food: Created by Chef Shari Lynne Robins; a pioneer of modern American Comfort food in Southern California, using local purveyor and the best quality ingredients, our food has been celebrated, reviewed and featured in numerous magazines, blogs and even films, videos and television shows. Some of the high quality purveyors are Red Rooster Bakery, Maple Leaf Farms, Mary’s Natural Poultry, Certified Angus Beef, Neuske farms, Salmon Creek farms, Golden Yolk Egg Ranch and many more whom we proudly support. We work hard everyday to make James’ Beach a great experience. Our team looks forward to taking that same dedication to help make your event exceptional. James & Daniel
