Dusty’s Bar will be undergoing some changes as the new owners look to spruce up the Highland Park dive bar. The Garvanza Improvement Association’s Facebook page says the plan to replace Dusty’s dive-bar mystique with a “bungalow-like design” appears to be aimed at attracting a different type of customer:
@HLP90042 is already mourning the loss of what it called “the last true dive bar of 90042.” Along with the removal of the name Dusty’s from the York Boulevard building, the hours of operation have been clipped to Thursday through Sunday.
