The restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles in the Standard Hotel, on first floor at the back, past the hotel desk into the sitting area. The booth ($3 per strip) is located near the bathroom at very end of the hallway.

This photobooth is very unique one. It was difficult to locate it because it blended with the silver background. It is easier to ask someone who works there where the booth is. Fortunately, I saw the familiar sight of the stool and the light of the overhead flash from the booth. The curtains have the name of the restaurant, which I thought was really neat. What surprised me the most were the awesome, rich colors of the strip, with the bold colors coming from the curtain and a soft color of taupe/grey mixed together on the strip instead of usual white or black.

UPDATE 3/6/10: The booth now turns out black and white photos, and is still camouflaged in shiny sheet metal near the bathroom.

UPDATE 4/8/14: Olivia reports that the booth is alive and well.

UPDATE 3/9/16: Stephanie reports the booth is alive and well.

UPDATE 7/14/18: Shan reports that the booth is still working, now costing $4.75 via credit card.

UPDATE 8/15/22: Julia reports that the Standard Hotel shut down in early 2022, so there is no longer a booth at this location.
