Venice Paparazzi was on the scene at the Pier House’s re-opening event on Wednesday, June 9th!It was a super fun, chill evening at Pier House, full of familiar friendly faces mingling and having a great time.  Guests enjoyed complimentary sashimi, ceviche,  steak tar tar, and much more, while sipping craft cocktails, wine, and beer.  The remodel looks fantastic and vibe is on point.  A big fist bump to Mike Dobson and his team for leveling up Washington Sq. again!

The Pier House is beachfront restaurant and bar in Venice, CA with a coastal California style seafood program. Paying homage to Venice history and the dancehalls of the original Venice Pier in the early 1900’s, the venue represents an all-new vintage inspired design, bringing a refreshed vibe to the area known as Washington Square.

A message from our friends at Beverly Bond:

Venice Restaurant Group hosted a media preview and cocktail party on Wednesday evening at their newly re-designed Pier House restaurant in Venice Beach. A mix of local editors, industry chefs, foodies and tastemakers gathered to preview the new space, try new menu items, and dance to tunes by DJ Mark Chill.

The Pier House is a beachfront restaurant in Venice Beach, focused on locally sourced ingredients and craft cocktails. Founded by Mike Dobson and Eric Beranek of The Venice Restaurant Group, the Pier House was initially designed as a beachfront shack paying homage to Venice history and The Dancehall of the original Venice Pier of the early 1900s. Today, the Pier House has evolved into an elevated beach-side hang out offering thoughtful seafood-centric cuisine and fresh cocktails inspired by the local culture.

Recently, Pier House introduced a refreshed venue with “all-new vintage inspired” design. The revamped space offers a unique vibe to the area known as Washington Square. As for the menu, the space has transitioned from a seafood shack serving burgers and beers to an elevated yet approachable restaurant with something for everyone.
