Get to know the owners!

James Evans is the namesake and one of the two co-owners of this beach side hangout. He moved from San Francisco to Venice in 1975. James worked at some of the iconic early Venice eateries, starting at the famous Robert’s restaurant and later becoming the General Manager of Tony Bill, Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli’s famous 72 Market Street.

In 1982 James met artist and business person, Daniel Samakow. The pair hit it off and together, 25 years later, in 1996, and opened the big brass gates of James’ Beach for the first time.
