Everyone’s talking about West Adams these days, as the historic neighborhood just south of the 10 Freeway continues to thrive with new development amidst an exploding real estate market there. One new name to pop up at a big property along Adams Boulevard: Tony Yanow, the Mohawk Bend/Tony’s Darts Away owner and all-around craft beer guru.
Yanow has been on the move of late, with his name attached to a few different high-profile projects across Los Angeles. Among them is a new Valley brewpub concept slated to land in the long-running Señor Fred space on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, where Yanow is focusing most of his energies at the moment. There’s also the Westwood restaurant and craft beer stop, which lands in the former Yamato space as part of the so-called Artisanal Brewers Collective that’s been snatching up all this real estate lately.
In fact, they’re the same collective behind this new West Adams departure. It’s a giant one-story brick building at 5645 W. Adams Blvd. and comes with lots of on-site parking, clocking in at around 17,000 square feet total (though Yanow’s project will reportedly only be about 6,900 square feet, including a 1,000 square foot patio). That’s all according to real estate site LoopNet, which also mentions loading docks, office space, and some original bow truss ceilings for the building, which will continue to house two other unnamed tenants.
Yanow and team remain mum on what’s to come of the address except to say that the place will in part function as a beer-focused restaurant, but with that much room to operate it’s easy to expect something big, bold, and beautiful. At its most ambitious, the project could end up looking similar to the ultimate indoor-outdoor, multi-functional idea that Downtown’s Iron Triangle Brewing has been throwing around for a while. More on this one as it comes.
