In an effort to make room for foot traffic and safe al fresco dining, West Hollywood is shutting down one of its busiest blocks.
The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday, February 23rd to approve the test project, which will close Robertson Boulevard for almost a whole block south of Santa Monica Boulevard,” reports LA Times.
“The closures will start at 6 p.m. Saturdays and continue through 2 a.m. Mondays, though the exact launch date is unclear. The council will reevaluate the program after three months.”
What restaurants are in this zone, you might ask?
Effectively, what’s happening is that West Hollywood Park will expand, meaning that restaurants like SUR Restaurant & Lounge, The Abbey, Guisados, and Rocco’s will have the ability to set up tables in the street.
