Having coffee with Bradley Tuck, relatively new P.R guy, for the Villains Tavern. Says Daily Candy of Villains Tavern, “Though your only brushes with the law include a speeding ticket and a slap on the wrist for jaywalking, Villains Tavern can still be your new night spot.
Restaurateur and interior designer Dana Hollister (Bordello, 4100, Brite Spot, Cliff’s Edge) has lent a steampunk touch to what once was a rundown sandwich shop. A centuries-old salvaged bar top, antique ironwork, and rich red and dark wood interior take lofty ceilings to the sinister side while swinging vintage chandeliers add Hollister’s signature hint of swank. But it’s the 1,600-square-foot open-air patio complete with bar, stage, church pew seating, and shuffleboard — all illuminated by candles and Edison bulbs, that will take your globetrotting breath away.” Think Shakespeare and Marlowe grab an ale at their updated downtown local. Beer theater with a hint of Hollister at its best.
But seriously, Villains Tavern has some of L.A’s best restaurant PR going on. [Read more about Hollister's brand positioning at Urban Daddy].
This picture courtesy of Thrillist website, where green-conscious Bradley has set up a little competition that if you mention the word “thrillist” you can enter a prize draw for a $999 Dahon folding bike (made in California). Cars in Downtown L.A are rarely used by local residents. Always forward thinking, Bradley’s P.R is the baddest, and you can carry a Dahon bike onto the subway, or even store it behind your couch in your expensive apartment with city views. Tuck’s (not the Friar, but Bradley’s) #1 P.R running mate in L.A is Megan. She pops as a marketing winner of the future.
And in L.A’s ever expanding business circles, Dana Hollister cannot be stopped. Dana is about to open four more restaurants and a hotel. She be growing that California economy in an edgy hospitable way. Nice job. But throw caution to the wind when visiting Dana, Bradley and Megan, you’ll have too much fun at happy hour. Just watch out for drunk cyclists, leaving Dana’s fun establishment, because her cocktails are strong at V.T. Let’s go Downtown L.A. Up!
Nice P.R Bradley. Go English gentleman like Bradley acting as good publicists in the U.S.A.
To experience the excitement of California’s culture, life, sites of hospitality and entertainment, come and experience L.A for yourself.
