Tesla is Opening a Restaurant and Charging Station in Los Angeles

Posted on

Many years ago, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had teased the idea of a Tesla restaurant. Now it seems that idea is coming to fruition.

Documents were submitted to the City of Los Angeles on May 19 for a new 24-hour diner in Hollywood that will also serve as a charging station for EVs and a movie theater, according to Bloomberg Pursuits.

With a net worth of $193 billion, the electric vehicle maker’s CEO first tweeted about building an “old school drive-in roller skates & rock restaurant” back in 2018, though the new architectural plans provide a lot more detail.

“Gonna put an old school drive-in, roller skates & rock restaurant at one of the new Tesla Supercharger locations in LA,” Musk had tweeted.

Located on the famed Santa Monica Boulevard, the new 9,300-square-foot destination would replace a Shakey’s Pizza outpost that sits a few blocks from Trejos Coffee & Donuts and McDonald’s.

The restaurant would have two floors and have a total of 218 seats both indoors and out. The first floor has the majority of the indoor seating while the second floor will be mostly outdoor seating.

The second floor will also sport a special theater section with snack bar that also comes with a prime view of the two giant 45-foot LED movie screens at the north and west end of the parking lot.

Additionally, there will be 28 superchargers on site that will allow drivers to recharge EVs while watching a flick. You may even be able to order food and have it delivered to your vehicle by a carhop.

According to the plans, the diner will be open 24 hours while the movies will screen between 7 am and 11 pm. As far as payment? Dogecoin will be accepted said Musk in another tweet this past February.
