A boutique hotel celebrating a love of whiskey is coming to Hollywood.

Argentine-American restaurateur Adolfo Suaya’s 134-key Whiskey Hotel is so-called for the whisky-themed minibars in each room, according to Curbed. The seven-story hotel is planned for a parking lot on Wilcox Avenue near Hollywood Boulevard.

If that’s not enough booze for you, the Whiskey Hotel will have a rooftop bar at which to imbibe and a ground-floor restaurant that’s sure to serve the good stuff.

Silver Lake-based Roschen Van Cleve Architects and Downtown’s CK Architecture are designing the hotel. The project is expected to break ground this year and wrap up construction by the end of 2021, Curbed reported.

Hollywood has seen a stream of development over the last few years, especially on the hotel front. Recent hotel projects include a 63-key Hyatt-branded hotel on Cahuenga Boulevard. Millennium Partners is weighing whether or not to include a 220-room hotel in its $1 billion Hollywood Center project. 

Apart from starring in food and travel shows on the Sun Channel, Suaya owns the Surly Goat bar in West Hollywood and the Phoenix LA in Beverly Grove. He’s had mixed success with a handful of other restaurants and bars over the years. He owns three hotels, including one in Uruguay and another in Argentina. [Curbed] – Dennis Lynch
