Behind the Scenes: Photos of Amoeba Hollywood's New Location
Amoeba Hollywood Sneak Peek
Work is underway inside the new Amoeba Hollywood location! As you can see from the photos below, there is a lot to do before we can move in to 6200 Hollywood Blvd, but we are making good progress.
We've gotten lots of questions about the new space. Firstly, how big is it? It's a little bit smaller than the old space, but not a whole lot. And yes, there is parking! There's a parking structure attached to the El Centro complex and we will validate. The new location is also across the street from the Hollywood & Vine metro stop, so it's super accessible from public transportation. Another popular question is about bathrooms. There will be a bathroom in the new location. It'll be locked like the old store, but just ask an employee and we'll let you use it. And finally, we will still be pet friendly! It wouldn't be Amoeba without our furry friends.
We'll share more updates and sneak peeks as the summer goes on and, of course, a reopening date when we have one. Until then, stay safe and healthy!
Many of you have asked if we're going to have a stage at the new location. The answer is yes! Here's a sneak peek at the buildout. It's a little hard to get a sense of its depth from these photos. Never fear, the new stage is only a wee bit smaller than the old one.
Below you can see the entry ramp being constructed by the front door.
These are the not-very-exciting-to-look-at-but-very-essential air conditioning ducts being installed. We'll be nice and cool all year round!
We have also gotten lots of questions about whehter we'll have a second floor at 6200 Hollywood Blvd like we did in the old building. The new space is one story, but it has several different levels inside. The staircase in the first photo leads up to the books section! The next 2 photos show steel beams being installed to support upstairs offices.
