Looks like West Hollywood's The Abbey is back in David Cooley's able hands, nearly 10 years after he sold a major stake in the West Hollywood bar to restaurant and nightlife group SBE in 2006, according to Wehoville. The purchase comes ahead of The Abbey's 25th anniversary, which is coming up in 2016.
It's likely a smart move for Cooley. That part of Boys Town has never been more popular, either, and should only see increased foot traffic now that Guisados is open nearby and Shake Shack is coming along.
The Abbey was also reportedly the single largest vodka purchaser in the world, in addition to hosting quite the impressive list of star clients over the years (think Hilary Clinton, Britney Spears, and most recently, Caitlyn Jenner).
