    Jones Hollywood Cafe Reopens in West Hollywood After Car Crash

    Jones Hollywood Cafe officially re-opened on Thursday night in West Hollywood at 7141 Santa Monica Boulevard. A car crashed into the restaurant back in November 2023, shutting it down for a little over three months.

    The iconic restaurant, which has been a staple in the Hollywood dining scene for nearly 30 years, was packed Thursday night with people having dinner and crowding around the bar area. The doors opened at 7 p.m.

    A car crashed into the cafe, located at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Formosa Avenue, on November 14, 2023. Emergency crews from the Los Angeles County Fire Department were dispatched to West Hollywood at roughly 7 p.m. Bricks and debris were strewn on the sidewalk in the aftermath of the collision.

    Keith McCarthy, the general manager of Jones Hollywood, expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support from longtime patrons in the aftermath of the accident. Employees Only Restaurant and Bar raised a whopping $11,500 in support of the staff at Jones Hollywood Cafe during a Jones Takeover event on November 30th. The restaurant hosted a fundraiser in solidarity with Jones, and supporters formed a line outside Employees Only the entire night.

    Additionally, a GoFundMe campaign initiated by the restaurant raised over $26,000 for its staff members affected by the closure.

    Furthermore, West Hollywood Mayor John Erickson later recognized the staff at Employees Only and Jones Hollywood with a proclamation during a West Hollywood Council meeting.

    There is still structural damage that will take several months to repair, according to an employee. However, the interior is as good as new, although the blinds will remain closed while plywood still covers the front facade of the building.

    The primary dining area resumed service on Thursday night, but the cafe section of Jones Hollywood will remain closed due to structural issues resulting from the accident.

    For those interested in making reservations, they can contact Jones Hollywood at (323) 850-1726.
