Check out this music studio turned into a restaurant called Grandmaster Recorders



HOLLYWOOD (KABC) – Have you ever wanted to walk around the same venues as David Bowie, Kanye West or the Red Hot Chili Peppers?

Well, at the Grandmaster Recorders restaurant in Hollywood, you can do just that, while enjoying a meal and a cocktail.

“Today, Grandmaster Recorders has gone from its original iteration of being a functional music-focused studio to now a restaurant rooftop bar,” said co-owner Grant Smillie.

The studio opened in the 1970s with a coveted roster of musicians who have recorded there over the years, including Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty and Gwen Stefani.

The studio shut down in 2016 when owner Alan Dickson passed away. It was vacant until Smillie and his team bought it.

“When we walked in here I had no idea the space, but immediately fell in love with it,” Smillie said.

Monty and Jaci Koludrovic are partners in life and food. Monty manages the restaurant menu and Jaci manages the pastry menu.

Monty describes the menu as non-traditional Italian.

“The fun element comes from not being bound by tradition and we say it’s food that Nonna would recognize but never really cook on her own,” said Monty Koludrovic.

While Grandmaster Recorders just opened in December, owners expect to have plenty of hungry customers as well as live music in the future.
