Goodbye, House of Blues: Massive Renovation Under Way on Sunset Strip

Oct 17, 2014  •  Post A Comment

The House of Blues is just one of the West Hollywood landmarks earmarked for demolition as part of a massive renovation taking place on the fabled Sunset Strip, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Replacing the famed rock ‘n’ roll club, along with Larry Flint’s Hustler Hollywood store and other businesses, will be luxury hotels, condos and chic restaurants, as “Sunset Strip goes upscale,” THR reports.

“Moving in are various luxury hotels such as the James Los Angeles and the first West Coast location of Marriott’s Edition brand, condos from AECOM and Combined Properties and restaurants including a chic sushi joint from chef Akira Back,” the story reports.

The piece adds: “The James Los Angeles will mark the strip’s first ground-up hotel in 30 years, followed closely by the Edition, a Marriott property developed by Ian Schrager.”

  1. Well, this is good news! About time the Sunset Strip was cleaned up of the art (House of Blues) and culture (Hustler) that made it ‘world-famous’. Can’t wait for Sunset to be so full of hotels and nothing else that people will no longer need to stay at the hotels because there will be nothing to do on the Sunset Strip. Then ALL those hotels will go out of business only to be converted to low-income housing… which in turn will bring back the low-scale grime that made the Sunset Strip famous in the first place. Thanks Garcetti!
