K & L Wine Coming to Hollywood

K & L wine is a big wine store in the bay area. I've been buying wine from them online for years. I see they've taken over the old paint store on Vine, south of Sunset, next to Kinko's. They have a Now Hiring sign in the window, so it looks like they're getting ready to open. I can't wait.

  1. It's been almost a year since they announced the Hollywood store. Glad it's finally close.

    1. do they do tastings and the like at the one in the bay area?

      1. Rumor has it they will open in February--but then again, it was supposed to be last fall, so we'll see.

          Their website indicates February in a vague kind of way that you really have to play detective to find.

            LA Dept. of Building and Safety issued sign permits last week, and they've had clearances for Certificate of Occupancy, so they're getting close...appears it's essentially getting their merchandise stocked and the interior accessorized. They're permitted to have wine tastings [no patio or outdoor, indoor only], but no self service or happy hour type of promotions.

          2. They've made a lot of progress in the last few months, so I'd say Feb. is realistic.

            1. Here's the real question: will they let you order online and pick up the order at the Hollywood store? I'm hoping yes, but fearing the answer will be no. I could save a packet on shipping...
