Change is coming to the Arts District bar scene. Randy Clement, co-owner of Silverlake Wine, has teamed up with Matt Molina, former chef at Osteria Mozza, to open up ERBar. If that’s not a match made in heaven, I don’t know what is. Taking up residence on East 7th Street, just a few doors down from Silverlake Wine’s Arts District location, ERBar will feature a variety of wine, cocktails, and craft beers. Coupled with complementary small plates made by the James Beard Award-winning chef, the spot is sure to be a popular gathering place.

Just like all three Silverlake Wine locations, the drinks and the overall vibe of the bar will depend on the people that come and of course, on what they drink. The style of the food will also be based upon what the neighborhood wants, so for now, both owners have refused to define their cuisine with any other word but “thoughtful.” The interior will be fitted with a bar running the length of the room while the outdoor patio makes for the perfect place to spend summer nights with friends. One of the best parts about the location and what attracted Clement most is the sizable parking lot, and as a downtown native, I think I would have to agree.

Clement hopes to open up the bar within a month’s time, with the patio opening at a later date, hopefully by July 4th. Perfect timing right?
