    Roro’s Liquor Officially Opens on The Sunset Strip in West Hollywood

    - Advertisement -

    Roro’s Liquor store officially opened in West Hollywood at 8850 W Sunset Blvd this past Monday, November 27, 2023. The new liquor store has taken over the former space of Terner’s Liquor Store, which officially closed this past May after serving the West Hollywood community and greater Los Angeles area for the past 93 years (according to their website, they opened at 8850 Sunset Blvd in 1930. It was called Turner’s in the early years).

    Roro’s Liquor had a series of pop-ups these past couple of weeks before officially opening this week. According to a manager at the store, they are still in the process of getting fully stocked. He told WEHO TIMES they have reached out to the local community to get their feedback on the items they love most and would like to see at this newly opened convenience liquor store located next to the legendary Viper Room.

    According to Liquor License details in the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Roro’s Liquor is listed as a California Stock Corporation that has been active since July 13, 2022. The Registered Agent on file for this company is David Sherian, located at 8800 W Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood. The liquor license is transferred from Cork N Bib Liquor at 16261 San Fernando Mission Blvd.

     

    The closure of Terner’s Liquor store came as no surprise to West Hollywood residents who are bracing themselves for a mixed-used development of the entire block at 8850 Sunset Boulevard, which will also see the demise of the original Viper Room.

    The future construction site is slated for the south side of the Sunset Strip between Larrabee Street and San Vicente Boulevard. The most recent pitch by Silver Creek Development aspires to build a mid-rise structure featuring a 113-room hotel with meeting rooms, amenities, retail, and a new space for the Viper Room, as well as 26 market-rate condominiums and eight units of affordable housing.

    The original plans called for 115 hotel rooms with 41 condominiums and 10 affordable units. That original vision, designed by Morphosis, would have incorporated a pair of 200-foot-tall buildings bridged by a rooftop terrace featuring restaurant space and amenities.

    Silver Creek, which acquired the 8850 Sunset site for $80 million in 2017, is expected to build the project over an approximately three-year period. However, a precise timeline for the development remains unclear.

    However, the opening Roro’s Liquor on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Larrabee Street raises questions about the talks of redevelopment in that area. An employee at the new liquor store said he didn’t know anything about the place being torn down. He said they are happy that they finally opened and want to get to know the community. He’d also like everyone to know that they offer free parking with a proof of purchase as validation.

    Nobody I know buys liquor at places like this, anymore. Unless it’s an unplanned “booty call.” Get yourself organized and go to Costco. The Kirkland brand vodka is actually Grey Goose! Go figure?

    No disrespect mean to Terners or this venue BUT: If terners could not make it on that corner TEN FEET from another long time liquor store, how can this one? The best part of Terner’s was its tacky 1980s headshots and “hole in the wall” ambiance. Now they took that out.
