From the same owners of Leka, Wockano, and Green Hut (all downtown) — Michael and Marcus Kwan and Kerry Moy — comes a new upscale sports bar called The Bunker Hill Bar & Grill opening very soon at the beautiful One Bunker Hill historic office building (aka the Southern California Edison Building). Replacing what used to be a La Salsa Mexican restaurant, Bunker Hill Bar & Grill will be a fantastic addition to an otherwise quiet-after-5pm corner of 5th and Grand, which is at the cusp of the Financial District and Bunker Hill.
The second floor space, resting above Coffee Bean and a Thai lunch spot called Esaan, will serve up a menu (still in development) created by Chef Remi (of Leka) and Mikka who has contributed to all the menus at Kwan and Moy’s growing downtown restaurant empire. The 3,400 square foot restaurant space will also have a spacious outdoor patio that’s almost 1,000 square feet large (seating up to 40) overlooking the Biltmore Hotel along Grand Ave.
As a sports bar that will be particularly attractive to the professional crowd working in the Financial District and Bunker Hill, Bunker Hill Bar & Grill will include large flat panel TVs and complete surround sound throughout the entire restaurant making it an ideal spot to watch a game.
Eventually, the goal is to have the restaurant open from 11 am to 2 am every day as demand dictates. The current timeline for opening is June 2013.
