It was last September when Nicole Daddio unveiled a new look and strategy for her Echo Park wine bar, City Sip. In a bid to capture a larger share of the young crowds packing into newer places like Mohawk Bend and Red Hill, City Sip introduced a new line of snacks – from tofu lettuce wraps and peanut butter brownies – in a new, lounge-like setting. But only four months after that makeover, Daddio today announced that her Sunset Boulevard business would be closing at the end of the month after a four-year run . Said Daddio in an email:
An opportunity has arisen to begin a new chapter in my life. Although I am very excited to move forward, this was nonetheless a difficult and heart wrenching decision to make. I take great pride that we have managed to build our neighborhood into a unique and colorful Los Angeles destination. Echo Park is my home, as well as my place of business, and I smile each time that I welcome an inspired new business.
Echo Park Now reports that the four-year-old wine bar is up for sale and will remain open for special events through March.
