In 1986, we knew a lot about running restaurants but very little about building them. Fortunately, our one-page business plan impressed the Bixby Ranch Company who agreed to build us an 11,000 square foot restaurant from the ground up.
When we opened on June 27, 1988, live music was not even a thought in our minds. However, we had a large, beautiful bar so we soon bought a piano and hired a pianist, who later added his friend the saxophone player, who then added a drummer…and the music piece of Spaghettini was born.
We are now one of the highest regarded small music venues in the country and have had hundreds of incredible artists grace the Spaghettini stage. Dave Koz, Poncho Sanchez, John Mayall, and Kenny Loggins are just some of the well-known artists who have played here, along with some extraordinary local talent. In 1999 we partnered with popular L.A. radio station 94.7 The Wave, and the Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch was born, becoming a hit all over Southern California, and Spaghettini became known throughout the southland.
We are grateful to all of you who have trusted us with your most special occasions and look forward to helping you create more Spaghettini memories, one table at a time.
