Posted November 14, 2016 at 5:12 am

It’s getting cold, but not at 122-124 Ludlow Street, where the temperature is rising. Eight months ago, we first brought word of another single-item, fast-casual eatery at 122-124 Ludlow Street.

Because apparently no service business in Hell Square can operate without a liquor license, there’s this… Restaurateur John Seymour’s eight-month-old Sweet Chick offshoot, Ludlow Coffee Supply, seeks an upgrade to serve booze, albeit wine and beer.

Report: Bloody Scuffle at Los Feliz this Month Highlights Hell Square Descent

Posted October 31, 2016 at 5:03 am

The early morning incident between two patrons began inside, spilled into the street, and left one with […]

The luxury residence was conceived and constructed as condos, but the owner reportedly decided to go rental instead. The marketing copy is quick to remind […]
