A Tall, Sunny New Coffee Bar Hits the Arts District’s Busiest Block

Go Get Em Tiger grows again

The folks at Go Get Em Tiger just can’t leave well enough alone. In a few short years Charles Babinski and Kyle Glanville have jumped their booming coffee brand from a standalone location in Larchmont to several outlets across the city, an in-house roasting operation, and now, a brand new sunlit coffee bar in the heart of the Arts District.

This new outlet lands right on Third Street, across from the shuttered Blacktop Coffee, which closed suddenly early this year. It’s a quick, well-done remake of the short-lived Di Alba sandwich space, and lands on the same block as Salt & Straw, Inko Nito, the incoming Father’s Office, and a restaurant by none other than Salt Bae himself. Talk about location.

Despite the well-known neighbors, Glanville, Babinski, and the entire company are keen to keep things simple. There’s the usual lineup of drip coffee and espresso drinks, plus some light food options like daily pastries and the Go Get Em Tiger breakfast burrito, which is fast becoming a hit at their other new location in Highland Park, which just opened last month. There are still plans to drop a location inside the Row in Downtown too.

In the meantime, this Go Get Em Tiger in the Arts District ramps up with an open week of previews, where hopeful diners can sign up to get a time slot to check the place out. Then it’s full steam ahead starting October 15, with hours from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to start.

Go Get Em Tiger. 827 E. 3rd St., Los Angeles, CA.
