Angels & Kings, the almost three year old bar on Las Palmas in Hollywood run by Dolce Group, is no more. Vinny Laresca, actor and owner of Premiere and Outpost, is now in control of the space, running a new drinking den called Mercy. However, Laresca says that for the first few weeks Mercy is only open for private events. More to come. [EaterWire]
Update: Also involved in this project are Dan Regan (Black Banditz tattoo and hair salon) and Julius Friedman (Hyde). Laresca adds, "It's going to be neither a bar or club. Something anti-club. A great place with great tacos, great drinks and great music. Very NY vibe."
