That long-gestating Silver Lake spot Tenants of the Trees finally seems to be ready to burst. Formerly the home of MJ’s Bar, an iconic gay bar that held down the neighborhood for years, the new Tenants redo is actually a piecemeal assortment of three different spots apparently, all under one roof.
The 1940’s building on Hyperion has been completely revamped, with one spot called Out of Order — that’s their music venue, which operates as a small stage for intimate sets. From there, Tenants of the Trees itself works as a cocktail bar wrapped up in loads of wood, with a patio in the back.
The third working space goes by Concession, and according to the updated Tenants of the Trees website will host outdoor movies and "curated rotational guest chefs" for what are presumably casual small-bites sort of functions.
Right now, there’s still an August unveiling slated for the space, though it seems some soft opening movements might be underway; a nascent Yelp page has even sprung up with some scant details and what must be one seriously early ‘review’. But, if the info is to be believed, look for Tenants to keep 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. hours from Wednesday through Saturday nights.
