Before and After: The Little Cave Becomes La Cuevita

The new design will be completed in time for Cinco de Mayo.

The months-long renovation of the on North Figueroa Street----now has a completion date.

According to the Eastsider L.A., the Little Cave will complete its transition to an "Old World Mexican Grotto" style bar, focusing on Tequila and Agave-based drinks, just in time for Cinco de Mayo. 

In addition to the new design, The Little Cave will also take on a new name--La Cuevita (Spanish for The Little Cave)

The new design features some new window panels but says goodbye to the brick facade and bat sign that hung above the doorway.

What do you think of the new design?

It's too bad that this part of Highland Park is so close yet so far to Johnny's and Footsie's, and was stuck with crappy Little Cave and now what seems like a just-as-crappy replacement.

Count me unimpressed with the change.

I liked the old place, it was a little dumpy, but I still liked it. Now it's just so sterile and fake feeling. It's lost its neighborhood soul. I hope it gets it back.

I love this place! Especially Taco Tuesday and the free tacos...hopefully they'll continue with that. As a gay man I've always felt welcome here as well...which is a great thing to have in the neighborhood. I've been only about five times but the crowd and the bartenders have always been really nice. I like the new design and really appreciate it being made a little more historical to fit in with the historic core it is within. I wish they would have kept the old faded painted signs on the front though as that was really cool...glad the brick is gone!
