Nightlife: Viper Room Buzz

Harry Morton's takeover of the famed Viper Room on the Sunset Strip isn't as smooth as one might think. LAist says bartenders were let go, one of the bookers is gone, and now the internal publicist and talent buyer announced a seemingly abrupt departure. "The tone from former employees feels cold, but one person seems upbeat about it. 'He is passionate about rock n' roll and The Strip, I was actually impressed,' Nic Adler of The Roxy said. 'I feel for the employees, I know them all. I hear the way things were handled was sort of cut and dry. But for good or bad, [Morton] wants to come in and create a new scene.'" [LAist; previously]
