Update: On Tuesday afternoon, Revolver updated its Facebook page to include the following message: "Just so everyone is on the same page, Drew Berrymore did not buy Revolver."
That seems to be the final word on the subject even if they did misspell the actress' last name.
Has actress Drew Barrymore purchased Revolver video bar?
Many websites including the Belfast Telegraph, the Oh, No They Didn’t website, Britain’s Pink News, the Examiner.com and Entertainmentwise.com are reporting that the E.T. actress has purchased the popular club at 8851 Santa Monica Blvd. (at Larrabee Street).
The Gossipcop.com website reports the story is untrue.
Similarly, there is no mention of the purchase on the Revolver Facebook page.
The original Revolver was a popular Boystown destination during the 1980s and 1990s known for playing music videos on screens throughout the bar. Revolver closed in 2004.
A new owner opened the upscale East West Lounge in that location in 2005.
In October 2011, new owners Chris Miller and Alfredo Diaz reopened the club as Revolver, a more upscale version of the original. Miller and Diaz each told Frontiers magazine that they had fond memories of the original club and wanted to recreate it.
Miller is said to be a business partner of Barrymore’s.
Some of the websites reporting the purchase also say that Barrymore is looking to buy , directly across the street from Revolver.
Rumors of Revolver trying to purchase Eleven have circulated through town for several months.
