Metro's First Subway Snack Bar

New, 36 comments

The LA Metro is getting its first underground snack bar/coffee shop this summer at the 7th/Metro downtown station, reports Brigham Yen. While this may sound like small potatoes, the opening of the Rush Snack Bar heralds a new urbanity for our city, according to Yen: "Many pedestrian-oriented cities in the world have metro stations that also have stores inside them. To me, it's always been a sign of 'urban maturity' that I wish LA would eventually have." The shop, currently being built out, is located near the Hope Street entrance (remember eating and drinking aren't allowed on trains, so pick up stuff on your way out); Rush will likely get a boost when the Expo Line, terminating at 7th/Metro, opens in the fall or early winter.
