Los Angeles
Barista

Neighborhood is a new coffee shop set to open on La Brea between 3rd and Beverly in Hollywood in November. The owners are two brothers who live with their families in the neighborhood. Both passionate coffee lovers, they saw the need for a community space offering quality specialty coffee and food service with an inviting hospitality experience. In the process, they’ve teamed up with local roaster Canyon Coffee, and will be scooping a local-made vegan ice cream. They are also excited to incorporate like-minded artisan vendors and collaborators on a regular basis.

Creating space for community is the mission of Neighborhood. Their goal has been to create a warm and inviting space in which they present a quality, elevated experience in an approachable way.

They know how important their team will be to accomplishing these goals, and they’re excited to welcome baristas who care as much about creating a positive and welcoming environment as they do about the craft of coffee. Neighborhood looks forward to hearing from you!
