STAR PATRONS Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Lauren Conrad and Christina Aguilera.
THE SCOOP Andy Fiscella and Chris Huvane have done it again. The team behind Hollywood hot spots Winston’s and The Dime added Crown Bar (just down the street from Winston's) to their nightlife empire. It has the same low-key vibe as the duo’s other bars with its ‘40s-inspired oval bar and amber-lit sconces, but it’s the menu that really sets it apart. This time around the pair teamed up with Chris Ennis to create a California-American menu including crab and sweet corn fritters and “sloppy pig” sliders for late-night bar hoppers hoping to recharge after dancing to resident DJ Samantha Ronson’s mixed beats.
