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.

The h.wood Group, fueled by a last year's acquisition from Hakkasan and plenty regular star power at places like Henry's, Blind DragonBootsy Bellows, and The Nice Guy, is greedily looking upon the now defunct DBA space in West Hollywood. The legendary nightlife slot along Santa Monica Blvd has been vacant ever since the fallout between Beau Laughlin and his partners.

The h.wood Group's founders Brian Toll and John Terzian are hoping to swoop in with a completely new concept that will open some time in 2016. No one's sure if the lease has been finalized or if the ink's dried out yet, but if all things fall into place, h.wood will have another buzzing nightlife hotspot by next year.
