Brown Derby Sale Cut by $5 Million
Thursday, 17 January 2008

Los Feliz Brown DerbyThe owners of the former Brown Derby Restaurant in Los Feliz, now the Derby Nightclub and Louise's Trattoria are attempting to sell the property, and have cut their sale price down from $20 million to $15 million in an effort to make it more attractive to potential buyers.  In 2005, Adler Realty unveiled a plan to demolish the historic Derby building and erect a new mixed-use luxury condominium development on the site.  The plans drew the ire of local residents and preservationists, who worked to halt the project.  Built in 1928 and once part of the famed Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant chain, the Derby was declared a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument in May 2006.
