Third wave coffee has finally arrived in the heart of Downtown LA’s Financial District, which is currently dominated mostly by Starbucks, Starbucks, and a couple of Coffee Beans. (Okay, there is third-wave Barista Society at Library Tower, but that’s borderline Bunker Hill.) Close to all the action, the very popular Two Guns Espresso from Manhattan Beach will be opening soon at the base of the Figueroa at Wilshire tower — a 53-story skyscraper owned by Brookfield situated directly across the street from the highly anticipated Wilshire Grand.
Planning to open April 6, 2015, Two Guns will replace the shuttered Border Grill Stop, which closed in January and occupied a stand alone permanent kiosk on the plaza level. New signs plastered on the kiosk windows announcing Two Guns’ arrival “coming soon” went up this week. The downtown location will offer tons of outdoor patio seating to enjoy your cup of joe, whether that be their famous flat white, soy latte, or cappuccino. Eater LA first reported back in late January that the coffee house was looking to open downtown.
