House of Blues on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood out, new hotels 

 

West Hollywood, CA – (FOX 11) The sights and sounds of the Sunset Strip are set to change as plans are in motion for the famed House Of Blues to be torn down and new luxury hotelsto rise in its’ place.

Hotel investors AECOM Capitol, CIM Group and the famed hotelier Ian Schrager have started projects to develop along a mile-and-a-half stretch of Sunset Boulevard, which runs through West Hollywood. Famous hot spots such as the House Of Blues and Larry Flynt’s Hustler Hollywood will close to make room for more tourism stay.

The reason falls on reports according to Bloomberg of hotel occupancies in West Hollywood being among the highest in LA County in 2013

    House of Blues: nothing more than a trademarked name for a concert venue. Something else will fill the void. Two decades is a nice run, and I’m sure there’s a story out there I’ve never heard, but it’s not as if the joint is legendary for early concerts by Jimmy Hendrix, Motley Crue, Pearl Jam or Nickelback.

    And good news for Larry Flynt. If his retail store is still raking in the cash, he’ll find a way to relocate it. If not, assuming he’s the property owner, cashing in on his property couldn’t come soon enough, given how his company’s flagship product — nudie mags — has suffered in the Internet age.

    Electric you make some good points. But it still sort of sad to see places like this close down for more family tourist industry type locations. It’s like shutting down mom-and-pop diners and coffee houses for another Starbucks and Dominos Pizza.
