Brendan Collins Heads for Hermosa Beach With Sunny New Tower 12

Opening next week right by the water

Farley Elliott is the Senior Editor at Eater LA and the author of Los Angeles Street Food: A History From Tamaleros to Taco Trucks. He covers restaurants in every form, from breaking news to the culture, people, and history that surrounds LA's dining landscape.

What is a British-born Hollywood chef doing down in Hermosa Beach? Consulting on a sunny new spot called Tower 12, of course, where guests can dive into wood fired shrimp and cedar-plank salmon just steps from the surf.

The arrival of Tower 12 should be a boon for Hermosa Beach. The Pier Avenue space sits on the second story and offers prime views of the ocean beyond, with the extra bonus of having one of Los Angeles’s most hardworking chefs in Brendan Collins manning the stoves. Tower 12 will be a super casual option for the area, adding two standalone bars inside the space that offer plenty of local craft beer, as well as cocktails from John Fox.

The Vanrooy Creative Group-designed build-out will offer a surf and sun vibe, with cozy mixed seating, lots of photos of the beach, and an overall clapboard and brick appeal. There are surfboards hanging around, some nice outdoor space, and a general chill vibe to the place.

Tower 12 opens March 9, keeping hours Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
