THE WILD restaurant and bar, co-owned by glam singer Adam Lambert, is now open in the City of West Hollywood in time for the WeHo Halloween Carnaval. The new bar located at 8945 Santa Monica Boulevard, was recently approved for a temporary liquor license, which is valid for 4 months, beginning on October 19, 2023, and ending on February 15, 2024. They opened their doors at 5pm this evening to what they are calling a soft opening to give the new hot spot a test run during Halloween.
THE WILD is the name of the new restaurant coming to the former Saint Felix WeHo space in the heart of West Hollywood’s LGBT Rainbow District, which closed this past September after being open for roughly 14 years. THE WILD is co-owned by Adam Lambert and Roger Taylor the drummer of the band Queen.
The bar is full, the Halloween decor is up, and a go-go dancer is on display at West Hollywood’s newest nightlife venue on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Robertson Boulevard.
According to a source, they are testing things out for Halloween, and they plan to close again after the big Carnaval celebration to add some finishing touches before they have a grand opening in the near future.
Construction work has been ongoing inside the new bar these past few weeks in preparation for the big Halloween party, which is one of West Hollywood’s biggest nights of the year, next to WeHo Pride.
The City of West Hollywood’s iconic Halloween Carnaval is back this year. Halloween in West Hollywood is anticipated to draw thousands of costumed revelers to the City’s Rainbow District along Santa Monica Boulevard on October 31, 2023, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. In addition, there will be Halloween celebrations at West Hollywood’s one-of-a-kind bars, restaurants, clubs, hotels, entertainment venues, and more on Halloween and during the preceding weekend.
The City of West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval is free to attend and open to the public. It will be a one-mile stretch of Historic Route 66 along Santa Monica Boulevard between N. Doheny Drive and N.
