Watch out for the new kids on the block of 5th & PCH of Huntington Beach: HQ Gastropub, Kenneth Brown Salons and Jimboy's Tacos! These three businesses are individually unique and are adding some more fun to this welcoming neighborhood in Surf City USA. Pamper yourself, get your hair done, or enjoy an atmosphere with musical art elements while eating and drinking some cocktails. HQ Gastropub is the first out of the three new merchants to open and has already created a lot of buzz around Huntington Beach.
"The moment you walk into this place, there's this very unique brick work, wood accents, drapery...there's a lot to the space," said Mark Matters, Owner/Manager Director of HQ Gastropub.
HQ Gastropub opened its doors on January 27 and the talk on the street is: lively, delicious food and the place to be! HQ stands for high quality and the name does not lie, from the food to the drinks and the seating--everything is top notch. The interior design reflects the "prohibition-era of a drink parlor" with high audio/video technology, musical attributes, stylish lounge seating and large round chandeliers that change colors during different hours of the day. Every menu cover is a different classic vinyl record album, adding to an unforgettable experience of being in a gastropub. They have sushi, salads, burgers, tacos, and short ribs to satisfy every food craving. Thirsty? HQ Gastropub has two open aired bars that offer a selection of craft beer, specialty cocktails and wine. *Local Tip: They have USB chargers underneath each table for your charging needs! Did we mention that HQ Gastropub is located on Pacific Coast Highway with views of the Huntington Beach Pier?
Bring your family and friends, hunger and passion for music to HQ Gastropub for an unforgettable experience.
