Cork & Batter — a laid-back yet luxurious sports bar experience by BNG Hospitality — is opening another LA outpost at 1747 Simi Town Center Way, according to an ABC application and confirmed by BNG Managing Partner Freddy Braidi.
The restaurant’s 10,000-square-foot, three-story Inglewood location debuted back in 2022 to much acclaim — big thanks to the venue’s sprawling rooftop bar — and a San Diego outpost quickly followed suit. The latter C&B is predicted to open this summer while its maiden operation continues to thrive with its close proximity to the Kia Forum and SoFi Stadium.
The burgeoning chain offers elevated bar food, craft beer, wine, and handcrafted cocktails as well as layered vibes unique to each level. Per the eatery’s website, “the menu features a diverse selection of delicious dishes made with the freshest ingredients from sliders and sandwiches to flatbreads, pasta, and plenty more — there are options for every appetite.”
Braidi did not provide an opening date or additional design and menu details for the incoming Cork & Batter. However, excited diners can expect a well-curated concept as BNG is responsible for a handful of SoCal hot spots like TCL Chinese Theatre, Hollywood’s Yamashiro, Comedor in Laguna Beach, and Adults Only.
