Bottega Louie to open second location in WeHo

Food lovers in West Hollywood will soon have their macarons and eat them too.

Restaurateur David Cooley announced last week that DTLA’s renowned Italian eatery Bottega Louie is opening its second location in West Hollywood and that he will be a partner in the venture.

It will open in the storefront at 8936 Santa Monica Boulevard that was once meant to house Cooley’s own eponymous restaurant, Wehoville reported.

Cooley, who owns the gay bar the Abbey, spent several years trying to open “Cooley’s” gastropub in the space, but his attempts were met with intense opposition from former Revolver bar owner Alfredo Diaz. While Diaz was ultimately pushed out of Revolver and sued for embezzlement by his business partner, and while Cooley acquired the permits to begin construction on the site in 2014, it sat vacant, leading to much speculation about what was to come.

The new Bottega Louie will open sometime in 2017. With nearly 9,000 square feet of space, the restaurant will have 200 seats and an outdoor patio. It will mirror its downtown location in terms of food options. There will be breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menus, along with beer, wine and cocktails.

“I have lived in West Hollywood for almost a decade and always wanted a place like Bottega Louie in my neighborhood,” Kevin McKellar, co-owner of Bottega Louie told WeHoville. “Thanks to David, we can open our second dream location in a thriving restaurant, bar and nightlife district in the heart of West Hollywood.” [WeHoville]Cathaleen Chen
