Looking to dine and drink on the beach? Maybe you need to go to Malibu.
WEHOville published a story yesterday quoting a minority owner of Beach Nation who said that our city’s sandy outdoor dining spot isn’t going away but is temporarily closed for renovations. This morning, however, Paul Kalt, the majority owner of Beach Nation, called to say that the return of Beach Nation is highly unlikely.
Kalt, whose Kalt Property Management is a contractor that invests in restaurants, said he hasn’t decided what will replace the current restaurant and coffee bar on the northeast corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Sweetzer.
“At this point, what is likely is that it will be a new concept,” Kalt said. “It’s most likely it won’t be Beach Nation.”
Kalt said the City of West Hollywood is reviewing requests for permits, which Michael Berman of Schoos Design, a minority owner of Beach Nation, said would allow a full kitchen and dining counter/bar on the property.
And all that beautiful white sand and those beach chairs? We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
