In conjunction with the Wake Me When I’m Free Museum at LA Live honoring Tupac Shakur’s monumental legacy, the Shakur Estate has announced a limited-edition Los Angeles location of Powamekka Café, a restaurant conceptualized by the late rapper.
According to a press release, Tupac described the restaurant as a place where all can “play and chat”, enjoy “southern home” cuisine and “escape the cold reality of the world”.
In 2018, John Seymour and Nas brought the Powamekka Café to life in their Sweet Chik restaurant on Ludlow Street. This time around, Fixins Soul Kitchen will serve as the venue, conveniently located across from the Wake Me When I’m Free exhibit in the LA Live neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles, near the Crypto.com Arena.
The temporary dining experience will include original pages from Tupac’s notebooks where he details the concept of the restaurant alongside desired menu items like okra, chicken wings and meatloaf.
The Powamekka Café will be located at 800 W Olympic Blvd A150, Los Angeles, CA 90015 June 16-30, Monday-Thursday 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.; Fridays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations will be available through Open Table.
