Our address is 453 S Spring St, but the entrance is on 5th St. (the Spring St Center entrance is ok for people loading in books to sell).

We are on the corner of Spring and 5th, which are both one-way streets.  Spring St. runs south, 5th St. runs west.

From the 110 N or S, get off at 4th St.  Turn right on Spring and we are on the next corner.  See below for parking.

From the 101 N, get off at Los Angeles St.  Turn right on 3rd, then left on Spring.  Then see below for parking once you hit 4th St.

From the 101 S, get off at Broadway.  Turn left on 4th St.  Turn right on Spring.  Then see below for parking once you hit 4th St.


There is metered street parking on both sides of Spring outside our store, and on 5th St also.  Due to downtown’s anti-gridlock measures, many of the streets have no parking during afternoon/evening rush hour.  Please check signs and note what time parking ends on the street to avoid towing.   Street parking is free after 6pm or 7pm (depending on street) and on Sundays.

There are 2 open air pay lots on the corner of 4th & Spring one block from us.  They usually run $3-8 depending on what day and time it is.  Sometimes filming trucks take the lots over.  There is also a tiny pay lot immediately next to our back entrance on Spring St, but it closes at 6pm and on weekends.  Then there’s an enclosed multi-level pay lot mid-way on Spring between 4th and 5th.  Lots of options!  Just make sure you have cash.


There is a Metro Red/Purple Line stop 2 blocks from us: the
Pershing Square station. Exit the station on the Pershing Square side, and
walk 2 blocks south on 5th St. (cross Broadway) to the corner of 5th & Spring.  We’re
located on the northwest corner (across from the Alexandria Hotel & Buzz,
