In an interview on May 25, 2022 on the Deux Me After Dark podcast, revealed Sandoval that he has his sights set on a grand opening in midsummer. “We don’t have a set date, but it looks like we’re going to open in July, towards the end of July,” said the former SUR bartender. “We pretty much had to commit to an event, so we need to be ready for that event in July. So we will probably open there to the public very shortly after that.”

“We are excited. I know it took a long time. It was tough,” Schwartz added, before teasing the mood at the Franklin Village Bar. “It’s kind of a groovy, funky, semi-tropical cocktail lounge,” he said. “It’s like a friendly neighborhood lounge. I think people are really going to dig it. “

In a previous video tour, Schwartz described the bar as a “funky, vibrant, cozy dive lounge nestled beneath the Hollywood Hills.”

In an interview in June 2022 with E! news“Schwartz & Sandy’s will be opening soon,” Sandoval teased. But once fans got a sneak peak at the facility, they quickly shut it down.

“It’s a real granny vibe,” another I Agree.

“Grandmas House Vibes,” another fan wrote.

Others thought the furniture looked like it came from a thrift store.

“Very ‘grandma’s house x thrift shop x cozy’” wrote a critic.

“Did they dive into the dumpster after that couch?” Another wanted to know.

And another commenter noted that the furniture didn’t seem right for a busy bar area.

“They don’t look robust enough for a busy restaurant. They will stain and maintenance will be a pain. They’re going to learn the hard way,” the fan said wrote.

When another remarked, “They don’t seem very commercial,” another agreed. “Not at all. Classic rookie mistake”, the commentator wrote.

“I’m pretty sure we had this wallpaper in the 80’s,” another cracked.

The name of the bar was also heavily criticized

Not only do fans like the look of the bar, many also despise the bar’s name. In the ninth season of “Vanderpump Rules,” Schwartz’ soon-to-be ex-wife Katie Maloney slammed Schwartz and Sandy’s name.

“I think it’s awful,” Maloney said of the name. via “You want to make it psychedelic, funky, fresh, lights, textures. And then you want to fucking call it Schwartz & Sandy’s?”

“The public doesn’t like it, but we’re going to make them like it!” Schwartz said Entertainment Tonight of the name. “We’re committed,” Schwartz added.

Sandoval compared the bar’s moniker to the name of a famous rock band and predicted it will resonate with fans.

“When I first heard the name Red Hot Chili Peppers, I was like, ‘That kinda sounds like a mariachi band,'” Sandoval said Us Weekly. “But now, after so many years — decades — you know, Red Hot Chili Peppers have established themselves as that band and that name is associated with them.”

Sandoval explained that after opening Tom Tom Bar with Lisa Vanderpump, they still wanted our names in the name of their spin-off establishment.

“So it’s like you don’t just get to know our first names. You get to know our last names. What really makes us who we are,” he said.
