Catch LA is too noisy for some WeHo residents

It may be one of the most coveted reservations in town, but not everyone is a fan of hip rooftop restaurant Catch LA in West Hollywood.

In fact, local residents are so fed up with the noise emanating from the seafood restaurant — the city has received five noise complaints since January — that they’ve asked the West Hollywood Planning Commission to intervene. 

Catch owner Mark Birnbaum is aware of the problem, according to Curbed. He even hired a “shush man” to tell customers waiting on the street to be quiet. He is also planning to spend about $200,000 to build a glass enclosure at the entrance to help buffer some of the sound, WeHoville first reported.

Catch LA opened in September across from the Pacific Design Center – becoming an instant hit and a spot for celebrity sightings.

The commission was set to review the restaurant’s permits in 12 months but voted last week to hold another hearing in three months because of the noise complaints. [Curbed]Subrina Hudson
