Things to Do

Grand Central Market

Grand Central Market

From food, community.

Grand Central Market's mission is to celebrate the cuisines and cultures of Los Angeles. Our commitment is to preserve the legacy of a historic downtown landmark, to gather the city's many communities around a shared table, and to nurture the next generation of local businesses.

The Market provides Los Angeles with a national-caliber eating experience that showcases California's best ingredients, chefs, and entrepreneurs. Our 30,000 square-foot arcade encompasses a food emporium and retail marketplace and will continue to grow by offering downtown a shared gathering place and a dynamic hub for public programming and events.

The Last Bookstore
453 S Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90013, USA
213-488-0599

The Last Bookstore is California's largest used and new book and record store. Currently in our third incarnation, we began in 2005 in a downtown Los Angeles loft.

That's when owner Josh Spencer took his decade of experience selling everything from cars to clothes online and focused instead on his first love: books. During the revitalization of downtown LA, we grew quickly to our current 22,000 sq. ft. space in the Spring Arts Tower at 5th & Spring.

The name was chosen with irony, but seems more appropriate with each passing day as physical bookstores die out like dinosaurs from the meteoric impact of Amazon and e-books. We continue to BUY, SELL, and TRADE like we have from day one. In addition to over 250,000 NEW and USED books on two floors, including our new Arts & Rare Book Annex, our shared space includes tens of thousands of VINYL RECORDS and GRAPHIC NOVELS, a huge mezzanine level that includes the Labyrinth Above the Last Bookstore, Gather Yarn Shop, and the Spring Arts Collective gallery shops. Truly something for everyone.

Somehow we became one of the largest independent bookstores in the world still standing. We continue to be amazed at how we got here. It's ALL thanks to people like you who want to keep actual books and records existing in the world. Join the cause — visit us soon!

KCRW's Saul Gonzalez visits us and interviews the Last Bookstore owner who created a massive retail space that's a mix of Victorian drawing room, sci-fi spectacle and artist loft bohemianism. It's all part of the mission to keep the paper and ink book business alive in an era of e-readers and digital downloads.
