The Formosa Café
We're comin'back!!! Why is the Formosa so legendary you ask? There’s nowhere else on earth where Elvis, Charlie Chaplin, Bugsy Siegel, Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe and Clark Gable were all regulars, Humphrey Bogart courted Eva Gardner, John Wayne would sleep over and cook eggs in the morning, the last place the Black Dalia was seen alive and even Brad Pitt would dress like a homeless person so he could drink in peace. The stories are endless and we plan to compile them all into a memoirs by the time we reopen. A true Hollywood landmark in the grandest sense, 1933 Group plans to honor every detail in the restoration. We could not be more excited.
