Remember “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” the hit NBC show from the 1990s starring Will Smith as a streetwise teen from Philadelphia sent to live with his rich relatives in a gorgeous mansion in Bel-Air, CA? That iconic house has now returned to the limelight as an Airbnb rental.
Starting on Sept. 29, Los Angeles County residents will have a chance to book one of five October stays in the Fresh Prince’s wing of the mansion. And it can all be yours for the astonishingly low price of just $30 per night—a fan-friendly rate set to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the home’s TV debut.
BelAir Cantina, a local Mexican-fusion chain, opened its new 3,000-square-foot addition Friday in Brookfeld.
The restaurant, located at The Corners of Brookfield, has added an 85-foot indoor/outdoor bar, and a private room that can be reserved for celebrations and banquets.
Expanded seating was brought to Market Square to reduce table wait times. The indoor seating limit is now 230, up from 160. The restaurant, 250 High St., also features new wall décor, including a mural and living garden.
“As construction wraps up on this significant expansion, we’re excited to be able to serve even more guests in a safe, socially distanced and enjoyable way,” said Robert Gould, CEO of Brookfield Corners.
The former restaurant space, meanwhile, is temporarily closing for additional renovations. The restaurant’s grand reopening is set for October.
BelAir Cantina was the first restaurant to open in 2017 at The Corners — a shopping and apartment complex at West Blue Mound and North Barker roads.
