A Lot More A Lot Like Love

After finding Amanda Peet’s apartment from A Lot Like Love, I just had to stalk the other locations featured in the movie.  Much of the movie was filmed in Sunset Junction, a small community in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles.  When Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher first reconnect, on New Year’s Eve, they head out to Sunset Junction for dinner.  While I am sad to say that I have yet to find the Chinese food restaurant where they eat their silent dinner (which, according to the director’s commentary on the DVD, is located somewhere in Pasadena), I did stalk most of the other locations.

img_1397.jpgBefore dinner, Amanda Peet parks her stationwagon in the parking lot of a dry cleaners.  You can see the words “Wash and Fold” painted on the brick wall in front of her car.   This is also the spot where, after dinner, she changes into a party dress behind a dumpster.

img_1398.jpgDirectly after dinner, Oscar and Emily walk to a cafe for some coffee.  That spot is The Cashbah Cafe, located at the corner of Sunset and Hyperion.  The Cashbah is a cute little bohemian coffee shop – and when I say little, I mean little!  I am shocked they were able to film inside of it!  They do make some good coffee, though! 

img_1399.jpgThe art gallery where Amanda Peet’s photographs are featured later in the movie, was in fact an empty store at the time of the filming.  Today it is a really cool bartending shop called “The Barkeeper.”  The laundermat, across from the art gallery, where Ashton waits for Amanda to show up is actually a laundermat in real life and is really located directly across the street from “The Barkeeper.” 

Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂 

Stalk It:  Sunset Junction is located in Silverlake, where Sunset Blvd. meets Santa Monica Blvd.  Sunset Junction is a cute place to grab a cup of coffee and do some shopping on a Saturday afternoon.  The Cashbah Cafe is located at 3900 W. Sunset Blvd., at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Hyperion Street.  Sunset Laundry is located at 3812 W. Sunset.  Amanda Peet’s art gallery, aka “The Barkeeper”, can be found at 3910 W. Sunset, where it is now “The Barkeeper”.  If you visit the store, be sure to ask for Joe, “the Barkeeper” and owner of the shop – he could not be a nicer guy!  He filled me in on all the scoop on filming in Sunset Junction.
