Chris Breed (Cabana Club, Maui & Sons) is back in Hollywood, this time at the swanky new Confession, which officially opens on June 5 inside the Pig 'N Whistle space behind the Egyptian theater.
Breed's Sunset Entertainment Group, which includes principals Alan Hajjar and Robert Kennedy, takes over the historic interior, adding a few clubbier elements like a confession booth (which is really a gussied up Twitter-ready photo booth), state-of-the-art sound system, and updated drink program by Frederic Vial. By day, the place remains Pig 'N Whistle, but at about 9 p.m. on Monday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, it changes up to Confession.
With a cathedral-like interior of hand-carved woodwork, the juxtaposition between late night revelry and the place's "holier" elements probably won't be ironic to anyone hanging out at the tables (don't worry, no religious icons anywhere).
