Moix and Livigni Address The Westside Drinking Deficit


In spectacular news for the tepid drinking scene west of the 405, Eater reports that Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix, the duo behind excellent cocktail bars like Hollywood's Harvard & Stone and La Desgarga, have purchased the Central space in Santa Monica. A dusky haunt for daytime drinkers and barflies, the space was recently given a punky refresh and will operate in its current form until the two conceive of a new mixology hub here. The owners are also reportedly bringing a project to Venice called Old Lightning. [Eater]
