Dine where David Bowie, The Foo Fighters and No Doubt recorded hit songs

HOLLYWOOD – Musical artists such as David Bowie, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kanye West and the Foo Fighters, among others, have all recorded hits at Grandmaster Recorders in Hollywood.

Today, the historic music studio has been transformed into a rooftop restaurant, lounge and bar with panoramic views of the iconic Hollywood sign.

“Today, Grandmaster Recorders has grown 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 list of musicians who 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 I 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 herself,” Monty Koludrovic said.
