As of April, construction had just kicked off at Saint Felix Hollywood, the next venue taking over the former Citizen Smith home. Since then progress has run smoothly and now management has its eye on a late June debut.
LA-based designer Troy Silva has transported a stylistic vision of New York City’s SoHo Arts District to Hollywood. Silva created a series of “green” art installations inclusive of a video series of burlesque dancers projected onto two large globes, a mountainous mast of gun metal wall sconces, a wall of refurbished antique NYC ceiling tiles, a large liquid rubber sculpture, and an oversized brick movie screen projecting a montage of Hollywood classics films thought out the space. Silva also re-purposed existing weathered outdoor flooring and salvaged innumerable antiques, statuary, and furnishings for a series of art installations that appear from entrance to exit. In other news, aside from the main dining room, Saint Felix will also an open a drinking and dining space in the enclosed alleyway between Hollywood Boulevard and Selma.
