David Cooley, founder of West Hollywood’s iconic Abbey bar and restaurant, has released images of “Cooley’s,” the restaurant and bar he plans to open at 8936 Santa Monica Blvd. near San Vicente next year. The images were presented Tuesday night at a community meeting at the Abbey where residents were invited to ask questions about the new venue.
Cooley’s will occupy 10,000 square feet of space that formerly housed Raffi Jewelry, Balliamos dance studio and Unicorn Alley, an adult store. Cooleys also will include a 3,000-square-foot patio facing Santa Monica Boulevard and a large terrace overlooking West Hollywood Park.
