“Schwab's Pharmacy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

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 may be off the mark, so to speak. However, the LAST Schwab's (at Sunset and CHB) did close in early December of 1983. They were auctioning off many memorabilia. I managed to obtain a handwritten menu which is still in my possession. Schwab's was surrounded by other businesses. When they closed, that entire large parcel of land was demolished and a small "mall" replaced it, including a Virgin Record Megastore - now gone. Ah, how the times change !

“Marilyn?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

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.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

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.

“Sad.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

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.
