Specialty recovery gift and bookstore, My 12 Step Store, joins next door neighbor, Locali eatery, to create SoBar Lounge, a mixture of late night shopping, music, food, desserts, coffee, and sophisticated mocktails, launching on Valentines Day, Friday, February 14, from 8pm to 12am.
SoBar Lounge will host a live DJ for a party atmosphere at 8730 Santa Monica Blvd., every Friday night. Attendees will have a safe space to eat, drink and socialize without the need for alcohol or other mind altering substances.
“This is a great way to have a community social setting without the presence of alcohol and the growing cannabis environments this city is now so associated with.” RJ Holguin, the owner and founder of My 12 Step Store told WEHO TIMES. “Over the more than 16 years of service and our recent expansion of My 12 Step Store, shopping hours have evolved and we occasionally get requests to stay open later. So when Greg Horos of Locali reached out to us to create a project together that would be a great way to stay open for late night shopping, while working to support of each other, that’s how Locali After Dark’s SoBar Lounge began.”
“Locali is thrilled to partner with My 12 Step Store, to bring you SoBar, a new and exciting take on nightlife for Santa Monica Blvd,” said Locali owner, Greg Horos. “Our core focus has always been providing LA with healthier alternatives to conventional fast food, so branching out to include amazing mocktails in a lounge atmosphere for a community that is anything BUT conventional, is indeed very special. With the long-standing reputation and good will RJ and his team have built in the WeHo community over the years, we couldn’t ask for a more supportive neighbor to join in on the party. We look forward to everyone joining us for the kickoff date this Valentine’s Day at 8pm!”
