Starbucks Gives a Dilapidated L.A. Monument an Art Deco Resurrection
After being left to the elements for 20 years, the Gilmore service station gets faithful 1930s makeover
Angelinos, New Yorkers have something of yours to envy. No it’s not your weather, your beaches, or your basketball team—the Clippers, of course. Nor is it your stress levels or your hordes of pretty people. It’s your awesome new Starbucks.
The world’s warehouse of neutral art and overstock music has just renovated the old Gilmore Oil gas station located at the corner of Highland and Willoughby. At last, you have a super trendy drive-thru location from which to pick up your half-caff quadruple-shot peppermint mocha frappuccinos.
