Gion Beverly Hills Bringing “The First And Only Geisha Outside Japan” To The Golden Triangle

Normally sleepy Camden Dr., in The Golden Triangle, has recently become a hive of restaurant activity.  Work is progressing on Beverly Bar.  The earstwhile H.O.M.E. space appears to be leased.  I’m not entirely sure what’s going on at the fossilized Brighton Coffee Shop (the windows are papered over).  And now a new ABC application has appeared on the front of 420 N. Camden naming the business as Gion Beverly Hills. And what is that? I’ll leave the description to them… This from their Yelp page:

“Named after the famous geisha district, Gion in Kyoto, Japan. Gion Beverly Hills is the first and only traditional Japanese tea house that features actual geisha from Japan. We offer the rare opportunity to view a live geisha performance and have interactions with the artists. Along with the geisha show we also serve a delicious tasting menu inspired by Kyoto’s four seasons accompanied by a tea ceremony featuring wagashi (traditional tea ceremony dessert) that will serve as your dessert course.”
