Interview with Addie Van Gessel, Owner

Nighthawk: Breakfast Bar serves up elevated breakfast-themed fare and cocktails in Venice Beach, CA. Nighthawk was inspired by the iconic late-night rock ‘n’ roll breakfast in Los Angeles, where musicians in the late 80’s and early 90’s would top off their nights eating in diners after the end of their shows on the Sunset Strip. The vibe is lively and showcases a curated mix of nostalgic old school hip-hop and other nostalgic hits. Our food and drink menu items are made from scratch with fresh quality ingredients by a team of fine dining-trained chefs and served to our customers in a casual environment.

Are you open for business? Yes, we are open for business with outdoor dining plus takeaway and delivery options are available on DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates, and Uber Eats.

What are you doing to protect the health of your customers? We follow all CDC and County guidelines including seating set at eight feet apart, tables are cleaned and disinfected between customer turnover, contactless menus via QR codes are placed at all tables, and staff wear masks and face shields to protect both themselves and our customers. Per County Guidelines, all customers must wear face coverings unless they are eating.

Do you have any news to share? Recent accomplishments, upcoming events, and/or special offers? Our beautiful back patio opened to coincide with the reopening of outdoor dining, just in time for Valentine’s Day. It offers lots of airflow and is in keeping with the 80’s theme music vibe to add additional seating capacity.
