Downtown LA's new bar The Lash has a fashion pedigree. Its look, which our friends at Eater describe as "austere, minimalist bunker," was masterminded by LA creative Erik Hart. Style fans may know Hart from his fashion brand Factory and the label Morphine Generation, which he launched out of a garage in 2003. He's is also a photographer, a musician and an artist, but he's "doing a lot of space design lately." That includes The Lash, which had its launch party this past Friday and is now open nightly from 5pm to 2am. Head over to Eater for more photos of Hart's work.
