Will Dana Hollister Finally Convert Church to Boutique?

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Dana Hollister is trying to seal the deal on the 26-room boutique hotel and restaurant going into this 80 year old church in the heart of Silver Lake, reports The Eastsider. The former Pilgrim Church, which occupied a grand Romanesque-style church immersed in a slew of residential housing (but just steps away from Pine & Crane), is currently under review by the neighborhood council, with a public hearing scheduled for June 25. Curbed LA reported in 2013 that some neighbors "worry about the proliferation of venues serving alcohol and have complained to the neighborhood council."

Hollister, who owns Villains Tavern and the nearby Brite Spot, hopes to add in a 4,000 square foot restaurant and bar that could accommodate up to 134 people. Remember that Hollister's One Eyed Gypsy in the Arts District is still shuttered after the State Board of Equalization shut it down after non-payment of sales taxes.
