    The Sunset Trocadero Lounge has Left the Building on The Sunset Strip

    The Sunset Trocadero Lounge has left the building on The Sunset Strip. A moving truck was seen in front of the woman-owned restaurant at 8280 W Sunset Boulevard as movers emptied the building. Their last night of operations was this past Saturday, March 23, 2024.

    “Come have one last drink with me tonight as we close this chapter of Trocadero and get ready to start a new one,” reads a final post on Trocadero’s Instagram account. “I know God has a plan and I’m ready for what’s to come. It was a great 8 years. I made some amazing friends and I’m truly going to miss my regulars. Thank you, West Hollywood. I’m ready to move forward. Something bigger is coming.”

    Owner Ana Peko tells WEHO TIMES that the hike in rent has forced her to vacate after owning the restaurant and bar for the past eight years. She says the landlord was asking for an outrageous amount. She added The Trocadero is a nod to the Cafe Trocadero which dates back to the 1930s on The Sunset Strip.

    The original Cafe Trocadero was an upscale nightclub that opened on the Sunset Strip in 1934 and immediately became the place where Hollywood stars went to be seen. Photographs of the stars out on the town at the “Troc” one night might appear in The Hollywood Reporter the next day, as both Cafe Trocadero and The Hollywood Reporter were owned by William R. Wilkerson. It was a black-tie French-inspired supper club, at 8610 Sunset Boulevard in the posh Sunset Plaza section of the Strip. It was believed to be one of the most famous nightclubs in the world during its popularity.

    The building that housed Cafe Trocadero was eventually demolished. The property stood vacant until 2013 when it was replaced by an upscale storefront building.

    The Sunset Trocadero Lounge moved about four blocks east of the former site of Cafe Trocadero.

    Great happy hour and always a nice staff. Bars and restaurants are a tough business when you don’t own the building and the lease ends. Best of luck to whatever they move on too. I just hope the space does not sit empty.

    I met my husband at the Trocadero over 23 years ago. We celebrated our anniversary there with our kids one year. So sad to hear this.
