There’s a new dinner-and-a-show venue in Hollywood, as the Prospect Theatre emerges from what was formerly The Attic, a nightlife destination with a quiet entrance off Cosmo Street. Instead of all-night bottle service and DJs, expect dinner service from an LA hospitality vet and modern interpretation of classic stage shows.
Technically, the Prospect Theatre is part of the larger Cinespace complex, though the entrance is just behind the iO West comedy theater and down an alleyway. For a while it’s been The Attic, a clubby lounge spot run by the massive BNG team — the same group that now controls the iconic Yamashiro up on the hill. Now it’s been redone as an ode to Hollywood days of yore, with an open, vintage feel and room for 150 patrons at a clip.
The idea with Prospect Theatre is to bring back true live stage production to the center of Hollywood while also providing meals and drinks. This is a true supper club format, with an 8 p.m. run time and post-show cocktails, punctuated with food from chef Kyle Schutte. As one may recall, Schutte was last long in talks at one point to potentially turn the former Red Medicine space into a flatbread concept called, appropriately, The Flats.
There’s everything from charcuterie to salads and deviled eggs on offer, as well as heartier mains like steak frites and fried chicken. To get in, you’ll have to purchase at ticket for the theater production, then pony up for the two item minimum on the menu.
The opening show is a modernization of Romeo & Juliet, with tickets running $39 a pop, and an opening date slated for July 8.
