First the Tiki Bar, then Trader Vic’s, and now Spaghetti Factory! When will the madness end! During my semi-monthly trip to the old Spaghetti Factory the mrs and I were greeted by the sign pictured in this link! Looks like it will be closing “due to plans for redevelopment”! What does that mean? As a company the Spaghetti Factory is going back to school to finish up that degree it never finished? Where will I take first dates to now?!? Auction to sell off memorabilia set for June 23rd. See you then as I bid on used Spumoni dishes so I can feed my cats their wet food in luxury!
It’s true. I actually found out about this a couple of weeks ago when I went online to check the lunch hours online and saw the note on their site: “Due to redevelopment plans, the Hollywood location’s final day of operation will be June 19th.”
Curbed LA also reported on this a few days ago, saying that a reader states that “only the front half of the building will be spared, while the back half will be demolished.”
According to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce website, The Old Spaghetti Factory site is proposed for a mixed use project that would include 38,000-sq.ft. of office space, along with 125 condos and 10,000-sq.ft. of retail. (Developer: GTO Development LLC)
I propose a blogging.la get together here sometime before the close. Cheap eats, unique atmosphere, and another Hollywood landmark about to close its doors. What say you?
