The once hot and happening Crown Bar on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood has been down for the count and awaiting new management for a while now. And that time has finally arrived. The 1933 Group guys — those behind Sassafras, Thirsty Crow, and a gaggle of other cocktail-conscious drinkeries from east to west — have gained control and will infuse new life into the space. PR says that the venue's name and concept have yet to be defined.
The 1933 Group is on a roll. Don't forget they are also working on Lucky Tiki in West LA/Palms. [EaterWire]
