The Strand to Welcome HQ® Gastropub

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA (November 8, 2016) – The owners of The Strand in Huntington Beach, CAPREF Strand LLC, announced today that Calabasas-based HQ® Gastropub, will open a new corporate location at the coastal shopping center in 2017.

HQ Gastropub offers an array of cuisines from traditional American to eclectic international fares, including sushi, burgers and salads, accompanied by an assortment of specialty cocktails, wines and craft beers. A “gastropub” is defined as a pub, bar or tavern that also offers meals of high quality – the basis for the restaurant’s name HQ Gastropub.

“Our unique use of music and imagery enables the brand to stand as an authoritative destination for eating, drinking and hanging out,” stated Mark Matters, HQ Gastropub Managing Director. “We are an organization that takes a personal interest in the happiness and well-being of every guest and our community. The food is as important as the beer, wine and spirits we dispense.”

The new location in Huntington Beach aims to duplicate the memorable mix of outstanding food, beverage, staff, atmosphere, music and musical art elements found at the original restaurant in Woodland Hills, with its “gastro-lounge experience” featuring cutting-edge audio and video technology and fashionable lounge-style seating with rich bold colors softened by natural wood accents and signature crystal chandeliers.

“We are eager to have HQ Gastropub bring its successful concept and operation to The Strand on 5th Street in Huntington Beach,” said Lance W. Taylor, CCIM of CAPREF Strand LLC. “The destination is known for creating festive and memorable experiences for its guests.”

The restaurant will occupy 5,230 square feet on the Pacific Coast Highway side of the retail development, beside CVS Pharmacy.
