On The Agenda: New late hours and alcohol permits for Silver Lake restaurants

The Silver Lake Neighborhood Council’s  urban design committee  tonight is scheduled to  review  proposals by two restaurants that want to take advantage of the neighborhood’s growing but competitive dining and bar scene.

The owner of Cafe Stella on Sunset Boulevard wants to extend the hours of the Sunset Junction restaurant and bar as part a state alcohol license, according to the agenda.


Meanwhile, on Silver Lake Boulevard, the current owners of the former Reservoir Restaurant are seeking to expand their beer and wine license to offer a full line of alcohol.

The meeting is scheduled to begin tonight, June 12, at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of the Silver Lake Citibank, 2450 Glendale Blvd. Click here for the full agenda.


  1. Approve both. Stella has done a great job since opening the bar and those of us near reservoir will appreciate having an option other than L&E sometimes, which is great and all, but not every night.

    • I’d love to see another Cafe Stella open up near the reservoir where you live. Let’s see how great you continue to think it is.

  2. Yes Stella is a gem of a restaurant and I hope they approve it.

  3. I drink Stella quite a bit. Nice beer.

  4. Go to jays. It’s the cats meow

  5. Speaking as one of the homeowners who actually lives near Cafe Stella, we have no love for this phony Francophile joint. Many of us are not fans of the arrogant bully that runs the place either. We deserve relief from yet another bar in our midst operating till 2am 7 days a week.

  6. As another neighbor of Stella since before it opened, I agree with the above poster. The owner is an arrogant not a very nice person. He has not always been gay friendly, according to the previous neighbors of his bar, which he kicked out after they helped him by allowing him to set up chairs out front of their establishment. Karma goes around, this guys got a lot coming.
