Terminal Bar & Cafe Long Ago Terminated


When I got to Los Angeles in ’78 there was still some of it left, like this bar located in a warehouse building across from the old fruit and vegetable wholesale mart in downtown Los Angeles.  Too much of this entire area has been razed along with the memories of anyone who once had a drink in the Terminal.  I have yet to find one posting of the Terminal Bar let alone the Terminal Cafe that adjoined the joint.  Being the fool that I was, all I have is this snap shot.  At the time, I wasn’t ready to have a drink in every joint I photographed and Oh Boy what a fool this guy was.  I can say that because I was that fool.

Enjoy this photo, because that’s all that’s left of the Terminal Bar.  Find more photos of long gone bars in Los Angeles here.

    1. Joe, the Terminal Bar and Cafe were located in a building across the street from the old vegetable market in downtown Los Angeles. There was also a barber shop and Mexican restaurant as well as other shops that disappeared when they started constructing the new vegetable market on Olympic. That was probably 15 years ago. The original vegetable market remained for many years and was just torn down recently.
