I would have titled this email 'Trend Alert', but I think it is far past trendy now. Let's review; The Edison (industrial deco) , Hush (actual speak easy from the late 20's deco) , Café Was (bohemian chic french depression era), Foxtail (trendy deco/nouveau), The Kress (oriental deco), … It's as if Los Angeles has taken a cue from the economic decline and gone backwards in time to reunite the city with the Great Depression. This week we add Bar Delux (Viennese deco) to the still growing list. Don't get me wrong, I'm in love with many of these places, but is anyone else going to gag if they hear the words "deco inspired" again? That being said, I fully intend to go by sometime soon in the next week or two so that I can rate the latest Deco décor at Delux.... and hopefully sample a superb St. Germain (My most recent obsession) cocktail. Oh, by the way, if Absinthe is more your style, be sure to visit the Green Fairy at Edison - no really she is actually there pushing around a trolley of light bulbs filled with green goodness ready to delight your senses! Cafe Was also hosts an Absinthe bar upstairs - how apropos.
