HIGHLAND PARK — Will you be able to order chicken wings and beer while you get a cut and a shave? Will the barbers double as bartenders? Those are some of the questions we have after coming across plans for a 3,125-square-foot restaurant and barbershop for the former Frank’s Highland Park Camera shop in the 5700 block of Figueroa Street.
Some of the details of the restaurant-barbershop are including in a filing with the Planning Department. The department is being asked for permission to allow for the sale of a full line of alcoholic drinks as part of a proposed restaurant and barbershop with 54 seats. The restaurant would be open from 6 pm to 2 am daily while the barbershop would be open from 12 pm to 9 pm daily, under the proposed hours of operation. There would also be limited live entertainment.
The applicant is listed as David Walker with 5715-17 N. Figueroa LLC. A David Walker also serves as president of Engine Real Estate, which owns the three-story, brick building constructed in 1928.
A restaurant-barbershop would be the latest in a string of new restaurants, bars and restaurants that have opened along Figueroa near the Highland Park Gold Line station. Earlier this year, the new owner of the former Highland Park Masonic Temple unveiled plans to open a restaurant and bar in combination with a performance space for live music, theater and other entertainment.
