Good Luck Bar, Los Angeles

On May 4th, 2019, after 25 years, the beloved Good Luck Bar in L.A.'s Los Feliz neighborhood closed forever to make way for a boutique hotel. I was lucky to get the opportunity to create this virtual tour there a few weeks before the closing.

Ramova Grill, Chicago

Next door to the Ramova Theater, in the Chicago South Side neighborhood of Bridgeport, the Ramova Grill served chili and cheeseburgers for 82 year, before the owners retired. I shot this 360° view in April, 2012.

Tom Bergin's Pub, Los Angeles

After news broke in 2018 that Bergin's would be closing down, there was an outcry from patrons, the Los Angeles Conservancy, and others. After a long series of twists and turns, the longtime (established in 1936) neighborhood fixture was voted by the L.A. City Council to be designated as a "Historic-Cultural Monument".

Last month the pub was purchased, and so far the new owners haven't divulged their intentions with the property. Fingers-crossed that the pub will remain intact and open.

Alpine Village, Torrance, CA

The very charming Alpine Village in Torrance, California (just outside of L.A.), built in 1968, is for sale and potentially could be demolished. The Los Angeles Conservancy is keeping an eye on the issue.

UPDATE: Alpine Village, as of March, 2023, is closed.
