First look: Grandpa Johnson's, an Art Deco cocktail lounge now open in Hollywood

First look: Grandpa Johnson's, an Art Deco cocktail lounge now open in Hollywood | Art Decoed | Scoop.it
It's late in the afternoon Thursday and L.A. nightlife veteran Johnny Zander is squinting in the bright sunlight, standing in the doorway to his latest Hollywood venture, Grandpa Johnson's. From the street it looks like a closed vintage jewelry store with two empty glass display cases, but a couple steps inside, through a red velvet curtain, of course, there's a "Gatsby"- esque cocktail lounge.

This large Montrose home is an art deco delight

This large Montrose home is an art deco delight | Art Decoed | Scoop.it
Montrose house highlights period pieces and an eclectic mix of artful objects The Moores razed the garage apartment, replacing it with a rear wing that allowed for the expansion of both the kitchen and the master bedroom and the creation of a separate living suite. The sitting room just off the front entry is book-ended by a geometric folding screen pulled out of a movie theater in the 1920s and a gaming table and chair set made of rich burled walnut that was hidden behind a thick layer of soot when Mary found it in Belgium. The seating area includes a sofa and two chairs with matching shell-back shapes, pulled together by one of the home's four Fette rugs, a brand started by an American missionary in China in the 1920s, blending Chinese weaving with art-deco-influenced geometric patterns. The showstopper in the Moore house is the dining room, where a mirrored chandelier - a sparkly, spinning precursor to the disco ball that came from a ballroom in the Catskills - grabs attention. At 125 years old, the chandelier still spins (although without an orchestra to drown out the motor, it's a bit loud) and dapples light on the room's colorful dining chairs and contemporary art. The house is full of works by contemporary artists, including Floyd Newsum, Dorothy Hood, Bob Wade and Cesar Sanchez, but it's the painting of the late Mexican expressionist painter Julio Galán that hangs in the dining room that almost cost them dearly. Lynn's listening to them in Spanish, and they are talking about taking the vehicle, but they looked down at the license plate and (Lynn's then-husband) had just been named to the arts council, so the license plate says Texas state official.
