The Figueroa Street building that will house the Gold Line bar

Highland Park  — DJ and record producer Peanut Butter Wolf is looking for experienced bartenders to tend his new bar, Gold Line, which is expected to open later this next month.

The Gold Line will be the latest watering-hole and restaurant to open up on a rapidly gentrifying strip of Figueroa near the Highland Park Gold Line Station. Recent newcomers include The Lodge Room, Otoño and HomeState.

Wolf – a.k.a. Christopher Manak – will be running Gold Line in partnership with the some of the same folks who opened L&E Oyster Bar in Silver Lake. The partners also include the general manager of his record label, Stones Throw Records, which is in the same building.

A rep for Wolf describes the soon-to-open Gold Line as a “listening bar,” given it’s owners record collection. Gold Line will feature highballs and three-part cocktails as well as whiskeys, mezcals and cognacs along with natural wines and craft beers.

In addition to booze, Gold Line will also be stocked with Wolf’s 7,500-vinyl-record library, which spans primarily from the 1960s through 1990s.  Wolf as well as “his favorite DJs, friends and bartenders” will be playing from the collection at the bar.

The Gold Line, which is expected to open later this month, will be at 5607 Figueroa near Avenue 56.
