Dave Reiss | Founder

If you don't know who Dave Reiss is, and you're a fiend for the underground icons of the L.A. scene, then you've most likely crashed 1 or 2 of his parties in the past two decades. But don't get down on yourself if you can't recognize who he is when he surreptitiously sits next to you at the bar and asks how you like the space. He's that fly on the wall who knows all the cool people in town and spends 85% of his career building that one, most excellent toy while spending the remaining 15% getting a kick outta watching you play with it. Through his friendships, ingenuity and instincts as a DJ, he went from opening Swingers on Beverly to Red, Sugar, The Brig and half a dozen other properties -- which isn't too bad for a kid who got his start churning ice cream at Swenson's in Westlake.

Patti Reiss | Owner

Patti met Dave while working in marketing at New Line Cinema, having spanned an extensive career in the entertainment industry, from Warner Music Group to Warner Home Video to BMG. Growing up in Milwaukee, Patti was no stranger to the food world, having founded a family baking company that sold to hotels and gourmet food shops, and catered events large and small in the Twin Cities. After The Brig, Dave and Patti opened a series of properties under the Reiss Co umbrella, beginning with Beechwood in 2004. Together, the two share an entrepreneurial spirit that began with a boutique gourmet food shop on Beverly Blvd., and has grown over the years into the vibrant Reiss Co portfolio of restaurant and bar concepts.
