Eater Spot Check: Silver Lake's Barbarella

SILVER LAKE: From the looks of things this weekend, Anat Escher's new Barbarella Bar is coming along just as planned. Escher, owner of The Bungalow Club on Melrose, plans to bring the former Zen Sushi space some credibility with a restaurant (rustic Italian menu) and lounge (25 beers on tap, etc.). No matter what kind of food they turn out, the building is already a huge improvement. The only signs of sci-fi sexy Barbarella (the movie) so far are studded black chairs, some sort of dramatic arches behind the bar, and a silver couch. The fact that they're looking for female bartenders probably plays into the theme as well. We can't wait to see what they come up with for a dream chamber. The target date is still early/mid- January.
