A new concept called Patio 66 is set to open at the historic Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier later this year, according to intel obtained by What Now Los Angeles.
WNLA reached out to the Vice President of Pacific Park, Jeff Klocke, for details regarding an opening date, menu items, and price points, but did not receive immediate feedback. However, an administrative professional for the park confirmed that a debut date has not yet been slated.
A Craigslist ad seeking employees for the incoming concept says the venue will be a restaurant and bar. This article will be updated as more details become available.
“Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier is LA’s only admission-free amusement park that offers 12 amusement rides, 14 midway games, an oceanfront food plaza, and dynamic retail experiences.
The ever-popular Park and iconic Pier enjoy more than 8.5 million visitors annually. In addition to the Pacific Wheel, the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel, Pacific Park’s signature rides include The West Coaster, a steel roller coaster that races 55 feet above Santa Monica Bay. The Park is operated by more than 500 team members featuring a highly diverse, dynamic, and passionate team.”
Upon its debut, Patio 66 will join a handful of dining options including Beach Burger, Pacific Wheel Pizza Company, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Scoops Ice Cream & Treats, Wetzel’s Pretzels, and a few quick-service snack stops.
