CALIFORNIA BEACH SUSHI CHEFS IN 1981
Rock n' Sushi
Established in 1981, California Beach was the original Rock n' Sushi restaurant. Founder Kazu Miyama had a dream; to bring the tradition of sushi and modernize it for Southern California.
Culturally sushi had remained a classic & quiet culinary experience. But amidst the late 70's fever of beach culture in Los Angeles, the days of rock n' roll and freedom, Kazu knew sushi and loud music went hand in hand. California Beach was born. If you lived in Southern California in the 80's you remember fondly the days of loud music, sake and sushi at the Hermosa Beach seaside location.
At California Beach Rock n' Sushi, there is a long beautiful history. From the early 80's in Hermosa Beach, California, when regulars included Billy Idol, Shaquille O'Neal, Tyra Banks, O.J. Simpson & Nicole Brown.
To the opening in 1985 of the Newport Beach location which Dennis Rodman from the L.A. Lakers frequented.
Its Hollywood location on Melrose Avenue opened in 1989. Featured in the opening intro of the infamous Melrose Place t.v. show, the location was frequented by many familiar faces such as Alice Cooper.
In 1997 California Beach opened its first location in Hawaii. You might remember its Ward Avenue location in Honolulu where they established their reputation as Oahu's leading sushi & Japanese restaurant for over 20 years.
Now located in Aiea, California Beach Rock'n Sushi continues to offer the freshest ingredients and its signature menu that has captivated Hawaii for decades. The daily Happy Hour has become a local favorite. Come by for some saké and sushi!
