1642: From Gang Bang to Beer Bar

New, 5 comments

Last month Liz Fischbach quietly debuted 1642, a new neighborhood bar in Historic Filipino Town (HiFi). The space, located at 1642 West Temple Street, previously housed a reputed gangster hangout called Lupita’s. Liz painted over the images of nude women adorning the walls while attempting to revamp the space, and in doing so she also discovered 1940’s architecture that had been previously covered up. The bare, minimalist space offers just enough comfort with a dose of cool inside a divey, unsuspecting corner building. Exposed brick, simple wood-topped tables, no art, no unnecessary adornments. At 1642 locals will find four to six craft beers on tap (like Eagle Rock Brewery’s Red Velvet!) plus bottles and cans of esoteric brews, and three white wines/three red wines available by the glass. Don't come too hungry because all you will find here to eat is salted peanuts. Starting tomorrow, 1642 will host local bands weekly, stop by daily starting at 6PM. [EaterWire]
