Across the street is the famed Broadway Angels Flight funicular, a hillside conquering train that was built in 1901. But if you’re looking for a true barista’s coffee bar cross the street to G&B Coffee inside LA’s Grand Central Market. It’s situated at the marketplace’s western entry. It’s always crowded but be patient. Grab a cup and wander through the market and add this to your bucket list of grand markets and great coffee bars.
The picture above faces south.
On the north wall is a fantastic neon sculpture sponsored by Bulleit Whiskey (a Diageo company) is a fund-raiser for the Museum of Neon Art in Glendale. Designed by Brendan Donnelly, the artwork was executed by Lisa Schulte, a longtime neon-art sculptor and member of the museum’s board. Here is how it works: Every time someone posts a photograph of this Bulleit Frontier Whisky sign on social media and tags it #FrontierWorks, the company will make a donation to the MONA for neon restoration purposes. So please feel free to copy the photo above and post it somewhere. Be sure to tag it!
