    Conservatory is Closing on January 2nd After Four Years in WeHo

    Conservatory, located at 8289 Santa Monica Blvd., in West Hollywood, has announced that it will be closing its doors at the end of the year, on January 2, 2023, after serving the West Hollywood community for over four years.

    The multi-functional space, situated on busy Santa Monica Boulevard, across from Hamburger Mary’s and West Hollywood City Hall, is known as a spacious, stylish hangout with a variety of environments for seasonal Californian fare and cocktails. It has been a popular destination for locals in search of a variety of meals and drinks. The restaurant includes a dining room, semi-open-air bar, lounge area, multiple patios, and a walk-up cafe window, making it a hub for those looking to grab a quick breakfast burrito or relax with a late-evening drink.

    The owner of Conservatory, Paul Kalt of the Kalt Group, has stated on Instagram that he will be dedicating more time to ongoing projects and working on new hospitality concepts. Kalt’s Conservatory first gained attention in 2018 due to its stunning design and historic location along Route 66. The cafe building, which was the original home of Irv’s Burgers, has since been relocated and reopened with a classic look about two block east from its original location. The restaurant won a West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce John Chase Art and Design Creative Business Award in 2019.

    “It is with bittersweet emotions that we let you know that Conservatory West Hollywood will close on January 2, 2023,” reads a statement on their closure. “It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve the WeHo community these past four plus years. Owner Paul Kalt, Chef Victor Munoz and the staff extend a heartfelt thank you to all that have filled the room with your loved ones and presence. Every visit has meant so much and we thank everyone for sharing their celebrations and time with us.”

    The statement adds that they are not going out quietly: “December will be filled with all sorts of festivities including: Christmas Eve dinner, Champagne Tasting Dinner and a New Year’s Eve Gala. We’re pulling out all the stops and will have everything from a special NYE menu from Chef Munoz, a DJ to keep you dancing, specialty cocktails and a Great Gatsby theme to bring the new year in with your chosen squad. Please continue to visit us through the end of the year as we will be giving our all with new menus, specials, and leaving how we started – a room filled with a vibrant, social setting and a toast to 2023…✨”

    Good riddance to this overpriced and pretentious place. Interesting that they forced the closure of Irv’s Burgers after over 70 years and they couldn’t make it past 5. I hope Irv’s Burgers thrives in their new location, and that a reasonably priced neighborhood place take over the Conservatory space.

    Another business (restaurant) closing shop in WeHo. Each day this city loses a bit more of its character, culture, history and charm. If this doesn’t become a more small-business friendly city (quickly), WeHo will become just another indistinguishable part of the rapidly-increasing blah that is Los Angeles.
