Silvio’s And Fat Face Fenners Full Of For Fans Of Blackhawks And Bruins
If you’re from Chicago or Boston and live in Los Angeles, there are two bars in Hermosa Beach that are the party places for the Stanley Cup Finals between the Blackhawks and Bruins.
They are Silvo’s for Chicagoans and Fat Face Fenner’s Fishack – also known as FFFF or simply Fenner’s by locals – for Bostonians.
And what’s really cool is that they are practically right across each other on the car-free pedestrian plaza at Pier Ave. And the Pier is one of the top party places in all of L.A.
Silvo’s is a Brazilian restaurant and like many places on the Pier, it’s pretty small. So it could be full by the time you arrive if you procrastinate (and game times are 5 p.m., PDT). It’s the home of a group called WACCO, which a Chicago transplant to Southern California started several years ago. WACCO stands for West Coast Association of Crazy Chicagoans and Others. I am one of the “Others,” by the way.
Fenner’s is a large bar that is almost like two bars in one. There’s a front bar with the Best Bartender in the South Bay, Juan. But most Boston fans watch from the back bar, which is a lot larger. The two areas are connected by a walkway and there’s also a couple small patios overlooking Pier Plaza.
Silvio’s is one of first bars on the plaza just up from the pier and the Strand bike/walking path that runs along the beach. Fenner’s is upstairs across from Sharkeez.
The address of Silvio’s is 20 Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach, CA.
The address of Fenner’s is 53 Pier Ave., Hermosa Beach, CA.
There is another option for Bostonians in L.A. Sonny McLean’s in Santa Monica is a Boston bar and gets packed early. It’s a very good spot and is most definitely a place for Bruins fans on the Westside.
It’s located at 2615 Wilshire, Santa Monica, CA.
