The Last Bookstore

453 S. Spring St., Ground Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90013, United States

Though there’s more than a hint of pessimism for the printed book’s future in the name of this indie bookshop, The Last Bookstore may actually restore your faith in its survival. New and used volumes are artfully displayed in the stunning space (formerly the historic Citizens National Bank), which melds original design features like vaulted ceilings and mosaic floors with quirky, modern updates like bike spoke fixtures and a wavelike sculpture of paperbacks mounted on the wall. Leather sofas invite quiet contemplation, while the coffee bar and performance stage (live bands regularly play) keep things lively. Don’t miss the $1 bargain book room.
