It looks like that L’Scorpion expansion into West Hollywood didn’t go so well, as the dim, dark club space seems to have vanished without a trace. Multiple outlets are now reporting that the bar is permanently closed, and has been for a few weeks, though the original Hollywood location remains open.
When L’Scorpion first hit Santa Monica Boulevard, in the onetime Forbidden Bar location, it had plans to become a quieter, more brooding den along that busy strip. Things may have been a bit too quiet, however, as the place never managed to garner much popular support. What’s worse: the bar was allegedly forced to overcome several ABC license suspensions throughout its tenure, due to nonpayment.
So now the business has been sold off for just under half a million to the nondescript 8512 Partners LLC, which doesn’t lead much of anywhere except to a mailbox inside a UPS store. Got any idea what’s next? Feel free to hit the tip line, or the comments below.
