ABOUT / THE VIBE
Tallula’s is an ingredient-driven, neighborhood Mexican restaurant, helmed by James Beard nominated chef Jeremy Fox, and is located just a few hundred feet from the beach. The colorful design – which earned the restaurant a nod in Eater LA’s roundup of 2017’s most beautifully designed restaurants – evokes an upscale beach cantina, with touches of wood and a coastal color palette that spills onto an outdoor patio. The restaurant also has a cocktail program focused on agave-based spirits and fresh market produce, as well as curated wine and beer lists paired to match the flavors of the food. Tallula's is available during the day or night for full buy-outs, accommodating 110 seated or 250 standing. The bar, lounge, and outdoor patio can also be set aside for semi-private events. Additional outdoor space for a party can extend into the parking lot, along with a taco cart for off-site events.

INFO / EVENT PLANNER TIPS
  • Tallula’s is housed in a former Japanese restaurant with pagoda exteriors dating back to 1984, so much of the structure has been preserved.
  • The private dining room is tucked away upstairs and has its own dedicated bar and a dedicated restroom. These amenities make guests feel like they are in their own space, which is a great touch. There is even a separate door for privacy. The light-filled space features the same colorful, breezy atmosphere as downstairs. There is even an anti-room for any check-in activities if needed.
