TAO Group announced on Facebook today (March 1) that its nightlife and culinary brands will be expanding to Los Angeles and are set to open this month.

Awaiting opening day are Avenue (an expansion of the New York City nightclub), Beauty & Essex (an expansion to its third location), Tao (an Asian bistro drawing inspiration from TAO in New York) and Luchini (a by-the-slice pizzeria). All four brands will be located right by each other, off of Selma Avenue and Cahuenga Boulevard near the Dream Hollywood Hotel.

Earlier last month the Madison Square Garden Company acquired a majority stake in TAO Group. TAO operates several high-profile venue brands in New York, Las Vegas and Sydney and is continuing to expand in Los Angeles, Chicago and Singapore.
