It's now an outdoor mall, with Crunch gym, Starbucks, Burke Williams spa, and several dining options. It's a great neighborhood spot, but has nothing to do with Schwab's.

As far as I know, there were more than one Schwab's back in the day - one being located on Hollywood Blvd. near Highland Avenue and that was the one that supposedly Lana Turner (who I met in the late 70s) was discovered NOT the last one that existed on Sunset Blvd. near Crescent Heights Blvd. GOOGLE this as I...

I went here. Wasn't this the place where Marilyn Monroe was spotted while sitting at the soda fountain counter, just minding her business. Though an icon, she probably should have stayed home that day, poor thing.

Okay, so give it a quick drive-by if you must (and if you're in the mood to buck LA traffic.) Honest, though, there's nothing to see. Really.

I actually remember Schwab's... I went there before the end came. It should have remained as what is there now? Just sad. Hollywood gone.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
