No longer just the sound old Italian walruses make, Bootsy Bellows is also now the name of an off-the-wall, performance-driven nightclub opening tomorrow in WeHo from a pseudo-star team that includes the guys behind H.Wood and SHOREBar, plus Beacher's Madhouse founder/ Luke Perry vampire nemesis David Arquette.
Like your parents, the space's split in two (divorce burn!): to the right there's a banquette-laden lounge with a Ricky Ricardo-style stage, plus a massive, middle-of-the-room dangling light fixture with LED
stalagmites stalactites (thanks, Magic School Bus) that change colors. To the left, an expansive VVVIP room with a private bar that'll run out drinks from Cana vet Joel Black, plus old-Hollywood furnishings like pink leather sofas, black & white marbled floors, one-way mirrors, and a baby grand that they say's going to be used for surprise performances, which'll either be really incredible or spell treble.
Oh, and they've already got a ton of awesome lined up for the that Ricardo-y stage: everything from jazz bands, to marionette performers, to life-sized puppets, to burlesque-dancing girls in cat costumes -- though be careful if you're allergic to fur, lest you coo coo ah choo. Salute!
