West Hollywood’s Bootsy Bellows, the beautiful and glitzy nightlife spot, is going dark for a few months in anticipation of a summertime relaunch. And to celebrate, next Tuesday, the popular h.wood group property is going all-out with a final bash before the construction begins inside.
Since its opening three years ago, Bootsy Bellows has remained among the top clubs in the area, a rare feat considering the constant turnover in that market. In fact, the Bootsy name is expanding, with upcoming looks in Las Vegas and even Toronto. Still, nothing stays beautiful forever, so owners John Terzian and Brian Toll decided to shelve the spring in favor of an upgrade.
"We want L.A. to stay ahead of the rest," says Terzian. "Bootsy Bellows will remain L.A.’s premiere concept lounge with signature puppet shows, live performances and our well-known exclusive ‘backroom.’" David Arquette jumps in to add that "with this remodel we will plan on really expanding the show with more performances, lighting, sound, staging" and more.
Anyone looking to get in under the wire should plan on hitting Bootsy Bellows this weekend, before the place goes quiet until the summer. Otherwise, head across the street for some Blind Dragon action.
