Dustin Lancaster

Founder & President

Dustin Lancaster is a Los Angeles based restaurateur and hotelier. An Oklahoma native, Dustin was drawn to LA to study theater at the California Institute of the Arts. After spending most of his 20’s acting in television and commercials, he enjoyed a transformative five year stint as the bar manager at Café Stella. Having fallen in love with the restaurant business, Dustin opened his first venture, Bar Covell, in 2010.

Eight years later, Dustin’s group, An Eastside Establishment (AEE), comprises some of the Eastside’s most beloved and acclaimed restaurants, bars and hotels. Founded on the belief that all good hospitality ventures are a result of great collaborations, Dustin has worked with a talented group of partners and staff to develop a variety of diverse projects. AEE’s portfolio includes wine bars, neighborhood restaurants, a live music venue, boutique hotels and more.

Each of these concepts was inspired by the eclectic and artsy nature of the Eastside, and rooted in Dustin’s passion for quality service, engaging design aesthetic and excellent food and beverage. In addition to developing his own places, Dustin also utilizes his wide-ranging expertise in the hospitality industry on a variety of consulting projects. AEE’s ventures have garnered such accolades as Esquire’s “Best Bars in America,” Los Angeles Magazine’s “75 Best Restaurnts,” and “best of” lists in Vogue, Travel & Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler.
