Does anyone know when/why Danube on Westwood Blvd. closed?

    Strange reason: Lack of business.

        Yes, Alcazar is opening in this location, even without any ABC licensing. Website info:
        Anyone been, or has it even opened yet?

          They keep pushing back the opening date. I believe epop passes by regularly and will report when they're open.

            I stopped inside and talked to the guy there and he said positively that they'll be open on Monday 8/17.

            No beer or wine yet - liquor app is in process. Exact same menu as their Encino location.

                Well, that's what he said when I stopped in on Friday. Anyways, he gave me their business card and you call & confirm before you make any extra effort to stop by.

                    It is the same well-executed traditional Lebanese menu they serve in the Valley.
