Have you been wondering what’s happening on the corner of 14th and Santa Monica Blvd. in SM? Construction recently began on what I’ve previously reported to be the future Arden Liquor Parlour going into the old Central Club directly behind Truxton’s. I recently cornered Pablo Moix, who along with his partner Steve Livigni, is responsible for a number of hip bars in LA, as well as the wildly popular new Scopa Italian Roots in Venice and learned that their upcoming cocktail establishment will not be called The Arden Liquor Parlour, a name created for the City permits that references a painting. They have yet to decide, but the new name could end up being a nod to the building’s history as a bookie joint. At this point, they are looking for a mid-February opening, but as we all know, this is Santa Monica, so we wish them the best of luck.
