Broadway Bar Gets a Bold, Beautiful New Look 6/13/14 – Urban Daddy

Broadway Bar Gets a Bold, Beautiful New Look 6/13/14 – Urban Daddy

Nine years since Broadway Bar opened.

In LA bar years, that’s like… 60 or something.

Pretty shocking the remake took this long:

Bask in the inviting new incarnation of Broadway Bar, Downtown’s two-story citadel of couch-and-patio flirtation from the owner of Seven Grand and Honeycut, now reopen. Here’s what’s changed, and what hasn’t.

Then: A sort of kitschy spread of patterned bordello wallpaper and well-worn carpet. It looked good for a while, then it started feeling a little… Reno casino past its prime.
Now: Beautiful leather sofas. Vintage brass sconces. Walls of sexy purple, black and midnight blue. It’s not a completely different place. It’s just… better.  Read the rest here!
