West Hollywood lounge experience

by The Masked Barfly on November 10, 2009

Today’s Dom Post reports that the Loaded Hog will, intriguingly, be redeveloped into a "west Hollywood lounge experience".

Los Angeles’s West Hollywood area is best known for its large gay village and its notorious nightlife.

It’s the home of the Chateau Marmont (where John Belushi died and numerous stars did very bad things), the Viper Room (where River Phoenix died), the Roxy (where the first American run of the Rocky Horror Show was performed), the Whisky a Go Go (the club that invented go-go dancing) and the Sunset Strip, where dreams are made and crushed, daily.

And it’s also known for being the home of the second wave of hair metal, spawning such masters of mascara as Poison, L.A. Guns and Mötley Crüe.

So will we see the ‘Hog transformed into a sort of late ’80s theme bar – a faded 1960s nightclub with chipped paint, used needles and the aroma of hairspray wafting from both the men’s and the ladies’?

And – more importantly – will we expect to see a nu hair metal scene evolve, with a local version of Mötley Crüe?

One can only hope the answer to all these questions is, "Hell yes, please".
