Vinny Laresca Melds Theatre & Club at Premiere, Opening May

Surely it comes as no surprise to hear that Hollywood is about to get another nighttime haunt. In November came the original word that Villa co-owner actor Vinny Laresca had claimed the old Central space with plans to open a hybrid restaurant/theatre/supper club situation. New details just in. First off, the spot has been named Premiere and is currently slated to open the third week of May. The idea here is theater meets nightclub, so think changing sets and impromptu performances within the 5,000 square-foot space.

Spacecraft headed Premiere's design which is comprised of a large room on the ground floor bordered by arches, raised seating, and a 100-foot bar. Opposing staircases lead upstairs to a second level which overlooks the dance-floor and DJ booth. The upper level boasts an additional, full-service bar and balcony seating. However, since the venue's theme will change seasonally, the setup is really like a blank slate to house whatever concept Vinny decides to play with.

When Premiere debuts in May the club's first incarnation will manifest itself as a mid-century Spanish theater inspired by the works of Gaudi and Dali, starring flamenco dancers, matadors, and bull fighters. Walls are draped in crimson velvet curtains, with exposed brick and stucco, dark-stained pine, and wrought-iron accents.
And wait, let's not forget about the food. On offer, "comfort food snacks with a European twist." Personal pizzas and panini, cheese plates, quesadillas, and baked chicken wings. Also look for specialty seasonal drinks and custom-made shots available by the bottle or half bottle at VIP tables.
