1980s-themed restaurant could be latest addition to Uptown Whittier
WHITTIER — A 1980’s themed bar and restaurant may be coming to Uptown Whittier.
Flashbackz Lounge and Grill has applied for a conditional use permit to open at 7013 Greenleaf Ave., allowing the restaurant to host live entertainment and stay open until 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
Its live entertainment would consist of 1980s cover bands, karaoke nights, DJ music, and chef demonstrations, said owners George and Maria Garcia.
Plans call for 14 televisions throughout the restaurant, showing live sports and 1980s era movies.
The lunch and dinner menu will feature American and Mexican cuisine, with a general selection of alcohol.
The Whittier Planning Commission will review the permit application at its meeting Monday night.
