Humuhumu told me about this place a while ago and I finally made it over there and found it. It’s weird I drive down Beverly Glen quite often and have never noticed it. Probably because Beverly Glen is curvy and everyone is always going way too fast.





The images in the lobby look like they belong in a Greek Restaurant instead of a Tiki Apartment Building.


Lobby looking out to Beverly Glen.

Great find!

Have to wonder about the greek stuff though. Maybe you could (if you have the time) a little historical research on the place. Start with old phone books at the library. See what it was originally. .

I went back today and got a shot of the Tiki without tree branch shadows in his face. He’s a cool Tiki.

I live down the street from this place, so I thought why not add some more pictures.
