DTLAbuzz attended the opening event and we’re happy to report, this new spot does not disappoint. We like the combination of deconstructed decor, custom finishes, unique lighting and spacious interiors.
Salvage Bar & Lounge is the brainchild of Soloman Mansoor. When we asked the man behind it all why he did it, he simply said, “I like making beautiful things. It’s my addiction.” The attention to detail is simply breathtaking. At every turn there is a unique and diligent vision realized. Add to that a friendly staff, $6 well drinks, $5 drafts and $9 specialty drinks, the overall experience is a breath of fresh air. There are very few places I can think of where you can you get beauty, class, friendly service and affordability all in one place these days.
In addition, they have partnered up with next door Japanese restaurant Octopus to create a tapas style bar menu.
Salvage Bar & Lounge is now open at The Roosevelt (recently purchased by Greystar from developer Milbank, and now offered for lease as apartments) at 717 w. 7th, between Flower and Hope. It’s a the perfect place to have a well-rounded evening out with friends or colleagues. www.salvagela.com.
