THE BLIND DONKEY, LONG BEACH
This bar is the setting of Sebastian’s jazz club at the end of the film – where Mia and Sebastian have their final, bittersweet encounter. In real life you won’t find jazz though, just a selection of the usual beverages you’d get at a bar (149 Linden Avenue, theblinddonkey.com). Also in Long Beach is the nearby setting of Mia’s pink apartment, shown earlier in the film. Built in 1928 in Spanish colonial style, Rose Towers (1728 E. 3rd St., Long Beach) is a 20-unit complex that was restored about a decade ago in a project lauded by the Los Angeles Conservancy.
