“Last week for me at James’ Beach. What a run!!! Please come and see me on either Wed. or Sat. and tell me your most beautiful secrets. Or just get a drink and let’s laugh!!!”
If you have not had the good fortune of chilling at James Beach and getting to know John, who is also co founder of Venice Duck Brewery, here is a bit of his story.
Here is a message from James Beach!
We want to honor our dear friend and master bartender, John Henry Binder, who is about to leave us at James’ Beach to pursue his dreams and enter a new chapter in his life. We all grew up together for over two decades and while we’re excited for his future success; it’s hard to say goodbye. 23 years ago, we had just started James’ Beach. James asked all of the bartenders; who wanted to take a chance working outside at the funny small bar with a palm tree growing through it? John volunteered and claimed his spot in Venice history and our hearts. After so many fun nights, Holidays, James’ Bond parties, friends birthdays, celebrations of every kind, people finding their dates and mates, 911, wakes, times we needed comfort, community or just to have a friend – through it all he captained the patio ship. We believe in neighborhood, love and friendliness and we will continue the connecting, love and friendliness that John cemented into the very fiber of that bar, that helped keep Venice, Venice. So let’s raise a glass of Dog Town Duck and toast John Henry Binder. We love you John!
