On tonight’s episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back, Gordon Ramsay and his team try to save Patrick Molloy’s, an Irish Pub in Hermosa Beach, California. The episode is being billed as Ramsay’s worst restaurant yet.
The episode was filmed last September, but in February of this year, Hermosa Beach officials rejected Ramsay’s redesign of Patrick Molloy’s. According to the Daily Breeze, the “modifications are designed to entice people to do exactly what city leaders don’t want them to — stay late and drink heavily, said city staffers.”
Patrick Molloy’s was founded in 1996 by Bill Bastian and Alice Bastian. The pub was named after their son Patrick Molloy Bastian, who now runs the operation. Last June, Voyage LA published an interview with Patrick where he offers his unique insight and perspective on the pub’s history and challenges.
