Bond 45 used to be a men’s clothing store where you recieved 2 pairs of pants with every suit. Now it’s an italian restaurant. Either way, they’ve got some great neon going on.
Until 11, it’s a restaurant. After 11, it’s a club. Cool idea. I’ll have to check it out soon. In the mean time, here’s what the unisex bathroom looks like. And here’s what the place is all about (pics and link from Eater LA…)
“Behold Eleven, Rich Grossi and Sid Krofft’s new restaurant/lounge in West Hollywood that’s been on the horizon for, well, ever. We got a sneak peek in November and the place was in absolute shambles; it’s amazing what they’ve accomplished. These images are from Oceanside Glass Tile, which is why the mosaic tiles feature so prominently in them; but it’s darn purty, so why not brag a little. Oceanside along with Wet design, architects of the Bellagio fountains in Vegas who constructed the 10-foot tall water-fire feature in the downstairs lounge, are using Eleven as a showcase for their designs; we expect lots of PDC-like ogling in the future. We haven’t see the fountain, but just the description sounds over-the-top: fire inside three individual fountains bursts into different flame patterns every 15 minutes or so, and um, it cost $1 million dollars. Yes. Dollars. If that doesn’t impress the post-Grammy revelers on Sunday (Eleven, on the 11th, is hosting the People magazine fete), nothing will. And those fancy-schmancy hydraulic tables haven’t come in yet, so something has to.”
