Unusual and interesting layout of a functional bookstore. I didn’t go to buy a book, just wanted to see this place and it didn’t disappoint. Some great visual spaces. Definitely worth a visit

We heard about The Last Bookstore during a walking tour of DTLA. We had so much fun exploring it, and watching people who matched the quirkiness of the place.The artists places are interesting also. So glad we visited.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

Either find one of the close parking lots or park further away on the street and walk there, it's a nice walk.
