Hello again! How are you today? Things going well? I sure hope so. Times have leaned toward the hectic and confusing as of late, which is my excuse (albeit not a very good one) for my absence.
Anyway, I'd like to jump right in with something new for the blog and that is... drumroll please... a leisure and style post. In my "Here, There, and Everywhere" posts, my goal is to showcase all that Los Angeles has to offer and where personal style intersects with daily life. For today, I'm showcasing a revamped established bar that I would like to visit. Situated on Washington Boulevard in Culver City lies The Corner Door. Headed by the Melrose Umbrella Company's Zach Patterson and Austin Melrose, who have also joined forces with longtime barman Beau du Bois, the beloved neighborhood bar now dawns the eclectic mixture of found and modern decor fixtures that have made The Melrose Umbrella Company such a favorite amongst those with a fondness for well-styled spaces.
Along with a wide assortment of cocktails, the restaurant works in a reworked menu that feels a little daintier than its previous fare, a little more cheffed up, with devil quail eggs (true finger food), kumamoto oysters, and lobster tacos to go along with a heartier plate of branzino or roasted Mary’s chicken. Don’t worry, there’s still a burger on the menu too, for those aching for a pub experience. The Corner Door is open 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly, with food served until 1 a.m. (perfect for local industry folks). And maybe on your next visit, you'll find yourself a regular too.
