In passing the Los Angeles Theatre last night, I saw a notice of June 6 hearing on several business being proposed for the structure.
The big question is what exactly would be done to the interior and how much the building would be compromised by these alterations.
The proposal calls for “the sale and dispensing of a full line of alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption and public dancing.”
The proposed venues are:
1) The 37,924-square-foot theater, which would have 15 portable bars and public dancing.
2) A 2,441-square-foot ground-floor bar and lounge with video and electronic games, with 85 seats, including 24 seats within the public right of way.
3) A 2,049-square-foot ground-floor bar and lounge with live entertainment with a total of 114 seats.
4) A 7,904-square-foot restaurant, bar and lounge on the ground level, second floor and rooftop with live entertainment with a total of 378 seats.
5) 2,490-square-foot restaurant with bar and lounge with live entertainment, with 153 seats, including 22 in an outdoor patio within the public right of way.
6) A 3,168-square-foot second-floor nightclub with ground floor entry via St. Vincent Court alley with live entertainment with 158 seats.
