Abbey owner David Cooley is opening up a new restaurant/bar in West Hollywood

I was at The Abbey for lunch today with Gary Lane and Larry Lane of Dollywood to Hollywood fame and we chatted with David Cooley who owns the place which remains the hottest spot in West Hollywood.

It turns out David is planning to open a second restaurant and bar right around the corner at 8936 Santa Monica Boulevard in 10,000 square feet of retail space.

That part of the block has needed a buzz-worthy place for years and it sounds like this will be it.

A press release states that Cooley and his management team at The Abbey are developing a venue designed to compliment The Abbey. It will integrate a 3,000-square-foot patio overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard and a large terrace overlooking the West Hollywood Park.

“I’ve been looking for ways to expand on The Abbey’s success for a long time. Opportunities on Santa Monica Boulevard like this do not come along very often,” Cooley said in a statement. “With this project, we’ll use nearly 25 years of experience from The Abbey serving the West Hollywood community and add something new and exciting to the heart of Boystown.”

I. Can’t. Wait.

BTW, the handsome blond in the second photo with Gary and Larry is Chris who has just moved to SoCal from Cleveland, Ohio.

He was applying for a job at The Abbey and we are hoping he gets hired! He’s even gone to bartending school!
