Los Feliz on Ludlow Street again proves itself to be one of the worst bars in Hell Square.
Two men were arrested last week in the wake of a bar-room brawl this month at the six-year-old Ludlow Street taqueria. The early morning incident between two patrons began inside, spilled into the street, and left one with a deep gash to the skull.
On October 22 at around 3am, a 29-year-old patron and Jonathan Karem, 24 got into a fight, according to a criminal complaint obtained by DNAinfo.
Karem hit the 29-year-old across the head with a beer bottle, leading to the brawlers being tossed out by security, police said. Once outside, the latter allegedly tackled Karem into a parked car which hashed his head and exposed his skull.
Both were arrested and charged with assault in the second degree. The two subsequently dropped charges against each other, and the case was sealed, according to prosecutors.
The incident reinforces the belief that the area of Hell Square is worsening after a brief period of plateau in recent years.
Los Feliz was founded in 2012 by controversial nightlife honcho Rob Shamlian (this was once Suba). It’s had a less-than-stellar track record the last few years, including police raids and closures due to alleged underage drinking. A corporate change was also underway earlier this year to bring in Sarid Drory (Cub Room, Waverly Inn, Artisanal)
