A new restaurant/ nightclub experience called Karnevil will be making its debut in Hollywood, located at 6627 Hollywood Blvd.
From the creators of Beetle House comes a brand new restaurant/ nightclub based on a 1920s steam circus with a bit of extra flair. Co-owner Zach Neil tells What Now Los Angeles he plans to have a soft opening at the end of this month, and guests should expect something they’ve never seen before. He says the new restaurant/ nightclub will be like the Ringling Brothers meets American Horrors Story with 45 different acts seven days a week. Guests can expect everything from stilt walkers and sword swallowers to wolfmen and bearded ladies.
Neil says this will be a high-end experience with elevated food not seen in the Hollywood Proper. Upon first arrival, guests will walk down a red carpet, eventually being met by a concierge that will take everyone to their VIP seat, similar to supper clubs in Las Vegas with plush fabrics and elegant designs. The first part of the night will serve as a seated show in a dinner theater, where reservations are required. From 10 pm to 2 am, the venue will transform into a walk-in nightclub where bands and DJs will perform.
As for food, Neil and partner Walter Mosley have enlisted Michelin-star chef Chris Binotto for the elevated food experience. Neil says there will be a lot of tapas and other food that can be enjoyed while watching the show. There will also be cool-themed cocktails, such as an edible candy apple cocktail, where the apple will be infused with liquor. The drinks and entertainment will continue after the dinner service throughout the night. Neil expects this will become a destination spot for Hollywood visitors, whether they arrive before or after the dinner service.
This opening has been long-awaited for Neil and Mosley, who first landed this spot at the beginning of 2019. The duo planned to open Karnevil in 2020, but the pandemic and other factors caused a nearly 2-year delay. Neil has also recently partnered with Cheech Marin to launch Muncheechos, a nationwide ‘stoner food’ brand of meals cooked for and delivered to marijuana lovers. The ghost-kitchen service will launch on April 20th. On the other hand, Mosley is responsible for notable brands such as Darkside Hollywood and Holiday Animals & the Electric Pussycat (an Austin Powers themed bar).
