    Business License Commission Grants Barry’s WeHo an Extended Hour

    - Advertisement -

    The West Hollywood Business License Commission unanimously approved the application by Barry’s Bootcamp LLC to change the location for Extended Hour Business License #EXT-002929 from 1106 La Cienega Boulevard to their new location at 8383 Santa Monica Boulevard.

    The commission proceeded to adopt Resolution No. BLC24-0003, which approves the change in location for Barry’s Bootcamp LLC and waives the requirement to hire a security guard for the extended hour. This resolution follows the business’s previous acquisition of an Extended Hour Business License in 2006, enabling early fitness classes starting at 5:00 AM. In March 2024, the business relocated to a commercial space at 8383 Santa Monica Boulevard. The establishment applied to amend its extended hour business license to reflect the new location, as they intend to maintain the same operating hours as their previous location, including the smoothie bar situated in the lobby area.

    In his presentation, Matt Hanton, the General Manager at Barry’s WeHo, spoke about how Barry’s Bootcamp was founded in West Hollywood and how the brand has expanded to 85 locations worldwide. He also provided insight into their daily operations regarding safety, stating, “We’re obviously really committed to ensuring safety, not just for our clients, but for our staff as well. We achieve this through a number of methods. All our staff have undergone de-escalation training… We also have a manager on duty trained at a higher level present from 5 AM till 9 PM, every day. Sometimes, that role is performed by myself, but we also have a team who fulfill that function.”

    Mr. Hanton added that Barry’s WeHo has an alarm system equipped with a panic button and has installed an extensive security camera system throughout the new location. Additionally, the new location features a buzzer system on the front door to monitor entry into the building.

    Commissioner Catherine Eng expressed appreciation for the staff’s de-escalation training and recommended that Barry’s take advantage of training opportunities offered by the City, such as active shooter training.

    Commissioner Mark Farhad Yusupov raised concerns about potential issues with noise, parking fees, and noise complaints. Barry’s offers 90 minutes of free parking in the 165-space garage with validation. Commissioner Eng noted that she visited the site and did not detect any noise coming from the business despite the interior being quite loud.

    Commissioner Danny Hang expressed his admiration for Barry’s Gym and mentioned taking several classes at the old location but had yet to visit the new one. He highlighted how Barry’s was one of the first gyms in West Hollywood to install medical HVAC systems to protect its members from Covid during the pandemic.

    Commissioner Jordan Cockeram motioned to change the address on the license, extend the hours of operation, and waive the requirement for a security guard. Commissioner Anthony Vulin seconded the motion.

    The motion passed unanimously, 5-0.

    Barry’s WeHo operating hours are 5 AM to 9 PM, Monday to Friday, and 7 AM to 7 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

    The City has so many programs and trainings to support safety!

    There is also CPR, Narcan training, Bystander training, CERT and many more. I hope as many citizens as possible can participate- it makes us ALL safer!

    Thank you for mentioning all this today because a lot of people may not have known that I certainly didn’t and I’ve left you for 25 years
