City of Angels & Kings
July 18, 2010 | by BY KRISTA-ALANA TRAVIS | Homepage
Where can a guy go to escape the elitist boîtes that own the night? Pete Wentz and company answered that question with the Hollywood installation of Angels & Kings. The new venue opened in April with a bang, hosting a celebration for the new album by Courtney Love and her band, Hole, and attracting the likes of drummer Tommy Lee and Panic! At The Disco.
Opulent with eccentric trappings—an antelope head with machine gun antlers is mounted above the bar while plush booths and oversize seating surrounded by red velvet curtains serve as your throne—Angels & Kings does away with the demands of other haute haunts. With no cover charges, compulsory bottle service or table-service minimums it exudes the ease of a neighborhood bar.
Sample the upscale bar food ranging from tacos and pizza to homemade potato chips, and wash it down with a “gentleman’s cocktail” or a taste from the whiskey, rum and beer collections.
This is the fourth location for Angels & Kings. The bar currently operates in Chicago, New York and Barcelona.
1708 N. Las Palmas Ave., Hollywood, 323-468-8815
We go behind the scenes with James Marsden, and ask him about the shoot, living in LA, and what's next.
