Susan Lord, the proprietress of the Bel Air Bar + Grill since 2007 continues. Under her patient stewardship the restaurant was remodeled and reopened in November of 2012.
The popular Express Coffee location in the back of the property was enhanced and rebranded as The Shack in the Back.
Susan’s GM is restaurant veteran, Douglas Wickard, who is also a successful author. He was previously with the elegant Art Deco Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.
One of the design highlights of the interior is the decorative use of high quality original art on the walls which is constantly changing. It’s a program Susan originated with California Institute of the Arts. It’s a great association. Susan’s family was responsible for founding this respected and admired institution.
“Susan’s goal is to continue to run the Bel Air Bar + Grill and The Shack in the Back as a gathering spot, beloved by locals, a friendly place to have a business lunch or social dinner, or grab as sandwich and coffee. Additionally she hopes to make the Sunset Room the go-to spot for high-end events in West Los Angeles.”
