This Wednesday**, Lock & Key, a new twenties-themed bar, is soft-opening in Koreatown at 4:00 P.M. Attached to the recently opened Stall 239 restaurant, the lounge will serve cocktails from Christophe Namer, former the sommelier at Mid-City L.A.'s now shuttered Pastis and a former attache for Grey Goose. Though the initial opening will only see drinks offered in the space, eventually the venue plans to serve dishes from its sister restaurant, which includes $4.99 street food dishes like poutine, pastrami subs, and a kalbi short rib sandwich, as well as a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dessert.
Lock & Key, 239 S. Vermont Ave,. Koreatown; 213-389-5625.
**Although a staff member at the bar originally told us it would be soft-opening on Friday, February 22, the business will now be opening on Wednesday, February 27, to the public.
