LA. Downtown. The Last Bookstore.

The Last Bookstore Downtown Los Angeles

I first read about this bookstore in a list of the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world and so I had to see it when I was in LA.

It’s located in the heart of Downtown, on the corner of 5th and Spring Street, in an old bank building. They mostly sell used books and you can even sell yours there, which is very rare these days. Additionally they host many events, such a readings and book signings, open mic nights and concerts. The name refers to the problem of physical bookstores closing due to the impact of Amazon and e-books.
