Meet Aaron Kweskin of The Hangout Restaurant and Beach Bar in Seal Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aaron Kweskin.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I had been playing professional poker for 6 years. It wore me out and I wanted a change. My wife is from Dublin Ireland and always wanted a Bar/restaurant. We saw this location was for sale and made an offer. The rest is history.

We rebranded and made food and an ambience that we liked and thought the community would like. We were right

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We had immediate success. Our biggest surprise was by how quickly the community embraced us and made us feel welcomed.

Please tell us about The Hangout Restaurant and Beach Bar.
At the Hangout, we specialize in Big, Bold food with a southern flair. We give great food, plenty of it and reasonably priced. We care about every customer and every dish that goes out. We understand that a great dining experience is not just great food, location and service but the perfect storm of all 3.
