Coffee Bar LA was the premier place in the early 2010’s in LA to find some delicious coffee. They were considered front runners for bringing delicious roast to a new corner of LA. Sadly, the business folded in 2012.
Owners Michael Leko and Will Shamlian are the partners behind Spring Street Bar on the same block. They also have Library Bar, which is currently open, as well as Pizzeria Urbano that will be opening in a few weeks at 6th and Hope streets. The new Coffee Bar design seems to take more than one cue from Intelligentsia shops in L.A., with an expansive central barista station for both communal seating or cafe tables; blue tile accents throughout; copper metalwork detailing accenting all of it!
