Spring Street Arcade is next in line to land a slew of new Downtown concepts, including a bagel shop, doughnut spot, and corner drinking destination called Clayton’s Public House.
It’s been a slow burn for the Spring Street Arcade, which many predicted would begin to fill up last year with hot new tenants as the nearby Grand Central Market quickly reached a saturation point. Of course there have been some seriously high-profile names to come in already — perhaps most notably BierBeisl Imbiss and Guisados — but much of the rest of the arcade has either languished or remains under some level of construction.
Per Eating Around SoCal, the three new tenants could start coming in as early as this month. Kaplan Bagels may well be the furthest out, though Clayton’s Public House is still under heavy construction. Remember that Clayton's is the nearly five-year project from the Royal Clayton's, which was formerly in Arts District. They’re at least in the process of obtaining their ABC license, which means there’s usually an opening date in mind. The closest to fruition is Downtown Donuts, which is actually in the process of hiring up, and says they have plans to open as soon as next week.
