What's the deal with Chez Jay's?

Heard Dennis Wilson of the BB used to hang out here in 1983 before he drowned. Any info?

Can I take my 14 year old son in there for a fast drink (pop)?

1. Re: What's the deal with Chez Jay's?

i haven't been in chez jay's in over 20 years so take any info i give you for what it's worth. in it's time, chez jay's was THE place (read "bar") to go to see lots of local celebs. it was pretty well known but more so by the locals. it's a tiny place that pre-dated most of what we now know as downtown santa monica (promenade/any of the upscale hotels on ocean). the guy who owned it, jay, was a real character and was good friends with lots of well-known people. havew no clue if he's still around, i think that they were trying to rip it down and he was fighting it awhile ago, but that might be just hearsay. it is a restaurant, so i assume that you'll be able to take your son in. here's the number if you want to call to check.
