Meet Ken Adam

from Fulham, London who moved to LA 41 years ago to pursue working with teams and players in the North American Soccer League.
Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?  George Best was playing for the L.A. Aztecs and I was his manager at the time along with many other British players. After the Aztec games, the players and fans would all go to a bar in Hermosa. We saw an opportunity so George, Bobby McAlinden and myself bought an old beer and wine bar in Hermosa Beach called Hard Times Tavern, spruced it up, got a liquor license and called it Bestie’s

It became the place for Brits in the South Bay – we had all the old favorites – fish and chips, shepherd’s pie etc and new arrivals from LAX would drop off newspapers that were like gold dust. No internet in those days! I sold out in 1985 when I got my real estate license. By then I was married so I settled here instead of going back to the U.K.
