The Abbey Food & Bar joins other businesses in coming up with creative ways to use the outdoor space in its surrounding area to offer an outdoor dining experience. Owner David Cooley announced the addition of the Abbey Road street café, located at the alley next to The Chapel Bar, sister to The Abbey.
“Outdoor dining has been part of The Abbey since I first opened in 1991 but now, it’s the only option for restaurants,” said Cooley. “The City of West Hollywood, West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Alcohol Beverage Control have been such great partners, coming up with ways to help small businesses survive and adapt by using the sidewalks and alleyways to keep our businesses open. With their help and leadership, we can continue to offer our guests The Abbey experience we’ve all grown to love in an exciting new way.”
Abbey Road offers diners an outdoor oasis featuring a nod to the famous white striped Abbey Road crosswalk, adorned with hanging gardens, planters and greenery, and plenty of natural lighting in a Euro-centric bistro café setting. Guests can expect to find all of their favorite Abbey menu items like the Abbey Nachos and Chick for Gay Sandwich, accompanied by an all new seasonal menu and The Abbey’s classic library of over 200+ specialty cocktails, plus mocktails, craft beers and wines.
Abbey Road is designed by Chad Waterhouse of world-famous Waterhouse Designs, who also designed Within, the elevated high-end lounge at The Abbey.
Abbey Road is located at 696 N. Robertson Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069, directly adjacent to The Abbey Food and Bar at 692 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood, California, 90069.
