SILVER LAKE — The original Silverlake Wine is preparing to create more room for its selection of wines. The popular shop, which opened 13 years ago in the 2300 block of Glendale Blvd., is seeking city permission to sell a full line of alcohol and continue wine tastings as part of a planned 1,617-square-foot expansion.
The expansion will increase the size of Silverlake Wine to a total of 3,802-square-feet, according to a filing with the Planning Department. With the expansion, Silverlake Wine wants to change it hours of operation to 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
The Eastsider reached out to Silver Lake Wine for more information.
Silverlake Wine shares the building with Rockaway Records, a nail salon and other shops. The wine store opened as this stretch of Glendale Boulevard attracted new businesses and saw the construction of the Silver Lake branch library next door. It’s not known how and if the wine store expansion will impact the other tenants in the building.
Wine store owners, George Cossette, Randy Clement, and April Langford are turning their attention to the Silver Lake shop after expanding into other neighborhoods.
In 2012, they opened Everson Royce wine store in Pasadena. Three years later they opened a Silverlake Wine in the Downtown L.A. Arts District.
