  1. Oh, yes, they closed a while back and the new tenant will be opening a place called "South". Stay tuned as this site has had way too many tenants over the years, from Royal Star, Hamburger Henry, etc.

    1. I was told that South was going to be a Southern style bar featuring fried pickles, fried green tomatoes, and other southern fare along with drinks. My prediction is that it is going to be another sports bar.

      1. re: PrettyPlaty

        If it is featuring that kind of food, it might not be there very long either. Yet I realize Busby's is doing fine as a sports bar, so your thought is probably correct. You know, to show all the SEC football games in the fall, etc.!

      2. You know, that is a weird spot. I enjoyed it as Royal Star for dim sum, but never went for dinner. I liked it for happy hour drinks and snacks and sports as Hamburger Henry. It is a weird spot, tucked under a strip mall on one side, with some covered parking in the rear. They are located too far west for Brentwood and too far east for Santa Monica foot traffic, so they have to develop something to attract drivers to come and figure out the parking. So far, the casual bar followed by the transplanted Chinese followed by the upper-scale bistro have all failed...
