Meet Steven & Jennifer Lieberman of West 4th & Jane Gastropub in Westside and Santa Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to Steven & Jennifer Lieberman.

Steven & Jennifer, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am from New York and my wife is from Miami. We both have extensive restaurant experience and decided to open our own pub in Santa Monica in 2009. It was a tough time in that year but the mixture of Craft Beer (my passion) and chef driven Farm to Table Food ( me and the wife), we were able to cut out a nice business for ourselves, Even though we are near tourist central in Santa Monica, we are the locals spot. We are a place that you can come with friends, bring a date, or randomly meet your wife at the bar (which has happened 10 times now). We wanted a nice tavern with beers that you can’t find anywhere else (24 taps and 50 bottles), California boutique wines, and all Scratch Homemade Kitchen (we even bake our own hamburger buns and pretzels in house). People call us the hidden Gem of the West-side. Our tag line is “Bar of the people”

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
2009 and 2010 was hard from the real estate bubble bursting, but we made it through by not only managing but working and building the place ourselves.

Please tell us about West 4th & Jane Gastropub.
We are most proud of the family way we run the business and the family vibe with our guests.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Started with more money and more Time.
