No beach town is complete without a salty air destination locals can call home! Inspired by the seaside beach homes of Nantucket, Voltaire Beach House is about to open its doors to the Ocean Beach community with an official grand opening in early January 2017.

Located at 4934 Voltaire Street, this neighborhood restaurant and bar is sure to connect with all who share a love of the coast with its 3,000 square-foot interior, including a wrap-around bar located both inside and outside. Patrons can also enjoy Pacific breezes on their 900 square-foot patio, perfect for dining alfresco with the warmth of a fireplace in the evenings. The antique copper design elements, rustic paint design and spiral staircase inspire feelings of a true beach haven.

With Consulting Chef Abe Botello at the helm, the menu will feature new American cuisine. Chef Botello gained significant experience working for Urban Solace and Solace and the Moonlight Lounge. In addition, Chef Botello is known fondly for his delicious food in his current role as Executive Chef of West Coast Tavern in North Park. The local restaurant will have a full liquor license and local brews on tap.

At the helm of operations will be General Manager Gabriel Shantz. Shantz lives just a few blocks away from the establishment and understands the heart of Ocean Beach. Working hand-in-hand with the owner, David Schiffman, they are creating a vision for Voltaire Beach House to be a truly comfortable, neighborhood hub.

From its welcoming atmosphere to its delicious menu, Voltaire Beach House is soon to become a destination Ocean Beach can’t wait to come home to.
