Great news! Back in October rumors swirled that NYC's Death & Co. could be headed west. As it turns out, David Kaplan, Death & Co. co-owner is planning another sophisticated cocktail bar and has claimed a location in downtown, about 2,000 square feet with a pre-exiting liquor license. The deal is just about complete.
Death & Co. LA will greatly resemble the East Village original where it's all about the cocktail, check out the NY menu for examples. And, it gets better. Death & Co. NY's mixologist Alex Day moves to LA with Kaplan next month to head up this forthcoming operation. Get excited.

Update: Despite the initial word that Death and Co. owners planned a second version of the namesake bar in LA, according to co-owner David Kaplan he is moving to LA with Alex Day to open a bar downtown though it will not bear the Death & Co. name.
