Bootsy Bellows, one of Los Angeles’s most see-and-be-seen nightclubs, is officially on its way to Dallas.
A representative for h.wood Group’s John Terzian and Brian Toll tells Eater that the buzzy club is set to expand to Dallas before the end of the year. Also owned in part by actor David Arquette, Bootsy Bellows has not disclosed where exactly it will land just yet.
Built Inc’s John Sofio, who designed the original Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood and its outpost in Aspen, has been tapped to build the as-yet-unknown space in Dallas. The interiors will reportedly match the burlesque-themed design, aesthetic, and vibe of the original in Los Angeles.
Opened in 2015, the bar is a celebrity magnet, especially for members of the Kardashian family. It’s also a favorite of professional basketball players, like Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Scottie Pippen. Even animal celebrities can’t resist the spot — in 2014, a llama that starred in a Starz YouTube series called Llama Cop hit up the nightclub, resulting in a public admonishment from the Los Angeles Department of Health. For the bar, not the llama.
No official opening date has been set for Bootsy Bellows just yet, but the bar is expected to open sometime in late 2017. More than likely, llamas won’t be allowed at the Dallas outpost, either.
