After a multi-million Hollywood-style make-over, the iconic Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City is set to launch the San Fernando Valley’s only Night Market. Turn up the music and turn down the sun… the Sportsmen’s Lodge First Thursday’s Night Market has arrived just in time to hit the Studio City summer calendars. Launching on May 1, and continuing through October (6/5, 7/3, 8/7, 9/4, 10/2) on the first Thursday of the month, 50 vendors and 10 food trucks will transform the spacious front lot of the newly re-modeled Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel into a concentrated mecca of clothing, craft, and greasy foodie satisfaction.
Hosted by the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel and produced by LA Event Co, the Sportsmen’s Lodge First Thursdays Night Market invites all Angelenos to engage this free valley bazaar from 3:00p.m. - 9:00p.m. As dusk descends a DJ will spin a funky web of eclecticism for the crowd of visitors, merchants, and chefs. The grubbing options will be many, as the fleet of food trucks will include:
For people of-age that might be thirsty for a proper drink, the hotel is setting up an outdoor bar/lounge in the market and will also launch a poolside happy hour. Additionally, the hotel’s iconic Patio Café (recently transformed into a modern, sleek American café) will be firing up its new menu and feature special offers for all Night Market-goers seeking a sit-down dinner before, during or after the festivities. For those looking to extend their good time, enjoy the new rooms and make a splash in the pool, the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel will offer a 20% discount to all market-goers each Thursday night (based on availability) simply by booking at www.SportsmensLodge.com and typing in special code: MARKET.
Rows of night market merchants will be offering a motley collection of interesting products. While the vendor list is still being trimmed by LA Event Co’s Phillip Dane, the ranks will include Rustic Threads, Detroit Trash, and Treehaus. Dane, hot off producing the Downtown Flea, first made his stamp on LA markets with the Fairfax Flea, which still sets up every Saturday at the corner of Fairfax and Melrose.
