Silver Lake's New European-Inspired Bar Will Have Outdoor Film Screenings
LAist: Tenants of the Trees will open to the public come September 15. It houses three spaces with different themes all rolled into one venue: Tenant of the Trees, Concession and Out of Order. Enter the Tenant of the Trees bar—just steps away from the bustling Trader Joe’s—through the side alley and travel through a bare wooden hallway that looks like it’s still under construction. Suddenly you find yourself walking out of an A-frame building into a cozy outdoor space with trees and an old-timey, red-and-white French Citroën truck. That’s where you’ll be able to get some cocktails on draft, as well as quick beer and shoot combos, Mark Daoust, the new bar manager (formerly from Dirty Laundry) tells LAist.
The outdoor space leads into the inside bar, which features gorgeous wood paneling on the ceiling, green plants decorating the space and paintings on the walls. It feels like you’re in a casual European watering hole. The sunroom, a nook in the corner surrounded by windows with cushy benches gets plenty of sunlight through its greenhouse-like walls, perfect for a bit of day drinking.
Reza Fahim, who co-owns the bar with Jason Lev, describes Tenants of the Trees to LAist as a “mid-century outdoor cabin bar.” As for the cocktail program, it’s developed by Proprietors LLC, who have crafted drinks at other L.A. nightlife destinations like Honeycut and Beelman’s Pub. At Tenants of the Trees they’ll be featuring seasonal drinks with fresh fruit juices and tea-style cocktails.
Just beyond the outdoor patio is Concession, a grassy space at the bottom of a hill, surrounded by with newly-planted trees, including a mini lime farm. Come fall, this area will be used to host free outdoor movie screenings. Fat Girl and Battle in Heaven are just a couple of favorite films for Fahim and Lev, who went to film school together, if that gives you any indication of what their film slate will be like: the arthouse variety. Concession will also have an Airstream, and rotating food trucks with different chefs’ takes on movie favorites like hot dogs and popcorn.
