Is Clifton’s Forest-Themed Cafeteria Closed For Good?

Downtown’s beloved 1935 eatery announced that it’s closed for food service.

If you’ve ever been to Clifton’s Republic in Downtown LA, you’re aware of the unique charm that radiates throughout the old-timey and unique establishment.

After closing down in 2011 for a “brief” renovation that lasted almost five years, new owner Andrew Meieran spent years refurbishing and rehabilitating the interior. Opening its doors back in 2015, guests were introduced with multiple floors and four differently themed bars, including a hidden tiki palace called Pacific Seas.

The historical cafeteria will be missed, however, Meieran says that the venue is making way for an Exposition Marketplace. Apparently, management is promising the return of Clifton’s beloved dishes while also bringing some “new classics” onto the menu. From the looks of it, it doesn’t seem as though the first-floor cafeteria was receiving too much love in comparison the big crowds that would arrive in the evenings for drinks.

The all-new marketplace is anticipated to open during the first quarter of 2019, so hopefully, we’ll be able to indulge in the quirky meals that we all know and love (aka JELLOOO)! For now, Clifton’s will only operate as a nightclub.

Location: 648 South Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90014. See it on Google maps.
