Rolling Stone Magazine to Open a Nightclub, Restaurant in Hollywood
Although the Hollywood & Highland area lost the Knitting Factory, it will soon gain a new club, of sorts. Rolling Stone Magazine this summer will open a two-tiered nightclub and restaurant. It won't be a music venue, however, as it will be more DJ-based (though they say live events will happen time to time). How will the 10,000 square-foot space work? The top floor, which will open up into the Hollywood & Highland outdoor mall will be a bar and restaurant, meant for tourists and locals a like. On the street level, the vibe gets more exclusive and will include heftier prices and the like.
"For those who love music and pop culture, the words 'Rolling Stone' continue to mean so much to so many people around the world, especially in the U.S.," said Niall Donnelly, a magazine partner, in a press release. "We are both excited and determined to bring the spirit of the magazine to life - the edginess, the coolness, the classiness and the timelessness - in making this venue a place to see and be seen in."
Also opening at Hollywood & Highland Center in May: Hard Rock Cafe.
