the STORY

Clayton Peterson, a native artist of Costa Mesa and Newport Beach, had a vision to transform a once boat-building house, by using all reclaimed materials and vintage objects, into a full service restaurant and live music and art venue now known as Boathouse Collective. The design maintains the building’s historical and rustic character while exhibiting an artistic and creative aesthetic that suits the industrial Westside Costa Mesa neighborhood

Off the beaten path and well-hidden without a sign, Boathouse Collective is a multimedia venue showcasing flavorful foods, creative cocktails, art shows, live music performances and special events attracting local creatives and foodies.

The concept of the Boathouse is to be discovered by locals through word-of-mouth; we welcome you for dinner service, happy hour, and entertainment.
