The Bel Air Bar & Grill
is set to reopen in early November. The restaurant opened in 1998 and was then bought by Susan Disney Lord (Walt's niece) in 2007. She ran it for three years, and then closed it 18 months ago to do a full-scale renovation on the restaurant and the adjacent building, from which she will run the Roy Disney Family Foundation. Close to the Getty Museum, the renovated Bel Air Bar & Grill will offer a bar-lounge space and two dining rooms with seating for 75. The interior design by Ralph Gentile & Associates will feature a rustic fireplace, beamed ceilings, and a palette of brown and blue. The restaurant will have a separate 1,100-square-foot private dining room and event space, the Sunset Room, which will hold 75 diners in a new divisible room that has a fireplace, views of the Getty, and a terrace.
