Bar 107 Is Coming Back (At Another Location)

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

How we'd lamented when Bar 107 closed its doors last year! Gone were the $3 cans of Pabst, the sweaty makeshift dancefloor, and that giant statue of a white horse.

Some said it was a true dive. Others argued that it was "hipster dive" (i.e. cheap cans of Colt 45 served in an atmosphere that was generally clean and innocuous). But whatever; it was easy to have a good time there, and you didn't have to plop down $15 for a high-concept mojito or whatever.

Now we're hearing news that Bar 107 is making a comeback, this time in a location that's closer to the Arts District. As reported by Los Angeles Downtown News, former owner Brian Trayman has filed plans with the city to open up a 4,000-square-foot space that's right above the Escondite, which Trayman also owns. The idea is to recreate the homey charm of Bar 107 in the new space.

Plans also include a tiki lounge on the roof. So, if all goes according to plan, there's going to be a triple-stack of libation-slinging bars at 410 Boyd St. So much drinking and carousing!

Vee Delgadillo, who used to co-own Bar 107, is apparently not involved with this project (she currently helms Down N Out and the Little Easy).
