Joseph's Cafe was once a small legendary Hollywood diner that catered such stars as Clark Gable and James Cagney back in the 1940s. In 1977 the cafe was passed into the hands of Leo Abrahamian, his wife Osvanna and son Joseph who were Greek immigrants with Russian-Armenian roots. For years Joseph's Cafe operated as a small 40s vintage horseshoe diner that packed in a rare mix of Hollywood locals and stars alike. It was adorned with plastic flowers, leatherette booths from the 1930s and framed picutures of movie stars that frequented for great food and a cozy atmosphere across the way from the famous Capitol Records building.
Today Joseph's Cafe has expanded, much like it's local surroundings in the Hollywood and Vine area. Today Joseph's Cafe is one of the most recognized restaurant/supperclub in Los Angeles and is internationally recognized as a preeminent hospitality company.
Joseph's Cafe was named one of the hottest nightclubs in the country by E! Entertainment, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, In Style Magazine, Women's Wear Daily, Los Angeles Magazine and LA Weekly to name a few. Visit our "Press" page for more info.
