What’s old is new again, as it appears that Vignette lounge in West Hollywood has re-transitioned back into Villa Lounge, the more popular club iteration on that site. It’s a rare triple-flip for owner Reza Roohi, who ran the first go-round of Villa Lounge in the late 2000’s before turning the place into Vignette and, now, back into Villa Lounge.
A passing tipster first noticed the reheat on some signage out front, which had transitioned back into Villa Lounge status. The long-defunct Facebook page for the nightlife spot is also back up and running, showing off lines around the block again and a few key shots of the interior. Still keeping it’s red-hued bordello feel, the bi-level space has loads of room for table service, plus a small main mingling space downstairs.
Not much else is known about the Villa Lounge resurrection at the moment, as the about face seems only a couple of weeks old. Still, it’s already become something of a celebrity hotspot once again, with the Daily Mail spotting Leonardo DiCaprio partying there post-Oscars just this past Wednesday.
