Highland Park Bowl
With a reverence for restoring Los Angeles history, 1933 Group revitalized Highland Park Bowl to unveil eight refurbished bowling lanes, and revived the location as a playful gathering place for bowlers, imbibers, diners, and music enthusiasts alike. Originally established in 1927 during prohibition, Highland Park Bowl is now Los Angeles’s oldest operating bowling alley.
In 1941, Idle Hour’s barrel-shaped structure derived as part of the "Programmatic architecture" movement, which was a direct link to the rise of the automobile when business owners in the 20's and 30's designed their buildings to catch the attention of quick passing motorists. Idle Hour is one of the last standing structures of this type in Los Angeles and now serves Americana cocktails and fare that are a definitive time stamp reflective of its original era.
We're comin'back!!! Why is the Formosa so legendary you ask? There’s nowhere else on earth where Elvis, Charlie Chaplin, Bugsy Siegel, Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable were all regulars, Humphrey Bogart courted Eva Gardner, John Wayne would sleep over and cook eggs in the morning, the last place the Black Dalia was seen alive and even Brad Pitt would dress like a homeless person so he could drink in peace. The stories are endless and we plan to compile them all into a memoirs by the time we reopen. A true Hollywood landmark in the grandest sense, 1933 Group plans to honor every detail in the restoration. We could not be more excited.

In the heart of Hollywood, 1933 converted a Savannah Townhouse to become Sassafras, a warm, welcoming little piece of the South, highlighting deep-rooted southern history and distinct flavors through its cocktail menu. The design is reminiscent of the bayou, with plants flourishing throughout, wicker chairs, portraits of Southern patriarchs, antique mirrors, and a creaky conveyer belt above the bar that displays bottle-aged drinks that are in constant rotation.
