The holidays are going to be relatively quiet at Los Globos, one of Silver Lake’s largest nightclubs, after permitting problems forced the venue to cancel its live music shows and dance floor to the public. Owner Steve Edelson, who took over the Sunset Boulevard club last year, told Hollywood Scene Style that his venue’s live music and dance permits had been canceled as of Monday by the L.A. Police Commission. But the head of the commission’s investigative commission said today that the owners never had those permits in the first place and need to get them now. “There’s no permit for the owners,” said Lt. Chris Waters of the Commission Investigation Division.
After Edelson purchased the club at the corner of Sunset Boulevard at Vendome Street last year the exterior of the two-story building was painted black, the interior was renovated and the place was booked with live music acts and dance events that lasted well into the early morning hours.
Los Globos will remain open for private parties and has applied for the permits in a process that could take 45 days, an employee said this morning. The employee told The Eastsider that the club would be sending over a statement with more details.
The end of live music at Los Globos forced some show promoters to quickly find alternative venues. The promoters of Halloween Fever in Outer Space, which was to have taken place tonight at the club, has been moved to Echo Country Outpost in Echo Park, according to an email. “Los Globos ran into some legal issues and had to close its doors for now. Which you can imagine was great to find out about this morning,” said the email.
