A place for all to “play and parlay”
The Shakur Estate announces the launch of a limited-edition Los Angeles location of Tupac’s Powamekka Café, his original restaurant concept in partnership with Fixins Soul Kitchen located across from the Wake Me When I’m Free Museum at LA Live.
Over twenty-five years have passed since Tupac conceptualized Powamekka Café. A place for all to “play and parlay,” the Powamekka Café, representing the finest in “down home Southern,” was to serve as a place for friends and family to get together and “escape the worldz cold reality.”
His vision first came to life in 2018 in New York’s Lower East Side, with Powamekka Café taking over John Seymour and Nas’ Sweet Chick restaurant on Ludlow Street.
Now, Powamekka Café, Los Angeles, will once again give Tupac’s friends, family and fans a chance to revisit his vision. Straight from the handwritten pages of one of his many notebooks, currently on display at the exhibit, Tupac’s concept is brought to life by including his favorite items from the menu he created including meatloaf, gumbo and his cousin Jamala’s fried chicken wings.
The Powamekka Café will be located at 800 W Olympic Blvd A150, Los Angeles, CA 90015 from June 16 – 30th, Monday – Thursday from 11:00AM – 9:00PM; Fridays 11:00AM – 11:00PM; Saturdays from 10:00AM – 11:00PM; and Sunday from 10:00AM – 9:00PM. Reservations will be available via Open Table.
