SILVER LAKE –— A new wine shop is planning to open on the south side of the neighborhood next to the site of a new bagel shop at the corner of Bellevue Avenue and Occidental Boulevard.

The owners of Psychic Wines have applied for a state license to sell beer and wine at 2825 Bellevue, which is one of the few commercial buildings in a primarily residential area. The same building is where Jason Kaplan is planning to open an 800-square-foot bagel bakery with a small retail store, reports Eater L.A.  For now, Kaplan sell his bagels at Dinosaur Coffee in Silver Lake and at the Hollywood Farmers Market.

So, who’s behind Psychic Wines? It’s Quinn Kimsey-White, Zach Jarrett, and Bradford Taylor.

Kimsey-White moved to Los Angeles from Oakland 6 months ago. He met his partners in Northern California while working at Ordinaire, a natural bar.

Jarrett and Taylor aren’t new to the local restaurant scene. They’ve worked at SQIRL, Alimento, and Cosa Buona.

“The shop will be focused exclusively on natural wines, and will initially be retail only until we apply for an expanded beer and wine license that will allow people to open bottles and drink on site,” said said Kimsey-White.“I like that South Silver Lake is primarily residential. It gives us the opportunity to anchor ourselves in the community.”

Update: Comments from the owners have been added to the story.

  3. This is great news for the area — that they will be selling two of my favorite things. Look forward to meeting our new neighbors!

  4. Wow, moved here 6 months ago and welcome to the pocket of Silver Lake that hasn’t been touched yet, are you kidding me!! How privileged of you to be able to afford to rent our convenient, social, and local now closed grocery store EL CRIOLLO we were waiting for you!…can’t wait for you to see this residential neighborhood, I think you’ll be looking for parking like everyone else even though you don’t live here…Bottom line is we lost our grocery store thanks to the shitty development of this “untouched pocket” of the newly named, by yourself!, a 6 month possibly resident, possible west-sider “south silver lake” ??? really? YOU are naming this “untouched pocket”?

    Yuck, that’s why I left the Bay Area (where I lived for 10 years. but saw the most depressing gentrification happening, so I had to leave, but yea it’s cool move to a new city that hasn’t been “touched” yet and bring your wine, bring your “ideas” like the previous pitch implied.

    Riiiiight. 6 months and your talking “community”

    • Good of you to take a break from *totally crushing it* to offer your thoughts.

    • used to live in the neighborhood 25 yrs. ago–silverbelle apts. think that store sold a winning lotto once. may visit again to check things out. too much greed going on there now. great luck, guys.
