Fix Coffee is gearing up to apply for a wine and beer license for its location all the way up Echo Park Avenue in Elysian Valley. A quiet neighborhood, it will definitely be a different place to grab a beer than the other jam-packed locations along Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park.
No official applications have been submitted, and the owners aren’t quite ready to go on record about anything, but it’s possible the coffee shop will be open as late as 11:00 pm. For the neighbors living amongst the narrow streets, fight for parking as it is, and who enjoy the quiet area, this might not be a welcoming change. There’s a part of me that welcomes a more “chill” place to grab a drink, especially since there are few locations in Echo Park to enjoy a beer outside in the warm Los Angeles air. But I also feel compassion for the neighbors who really value quiet evenings at home.
