The newest outpost of the Mexican restaurant Pink Taco
was slated to open on the Sunset Strip by the end of May, with two bars intended to draw a nightlife crowd. The space that is home to the new 12,000-square-foot, three-level Pink Taco most recently housed Miyagi’s and once housed the Player’s Club in the 1940s. Harry Morton stripped and restored the Pink Taco Sunset Strip’s interiors to the exposed brick and raw steal ironwork. The design includes Dia de Los Muertos street graffiti, subway tiles from downtown L.A.’s metro station, murals of Lucha Libres, Calavera, and goddess Mictecacihuatl, and vintage candelabras that hang from the ceiling. The 120-seat, indoor-outdoor ground level includes the largest patio on Sunset Boulevard.
