MISTR, the telemedicine (telePrEP) platform/PrEP provider, is opening a location in West Hollywood, but not at the corner of the former Rounderbum space at the southeast corner of Santa Monica and San Vicente Boulevards as previously rumored. The prep platform is actually opening a storefront at 8700 Santa Monica Boulevard, which is the the former home of the long gone Coco Queen space.
Signage has gone up at the building for Pride Weekend. The building was painted a dark blue this past February, which matches the MISTR logo and website color scheme. The Los Angeles LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce has their business address listed at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Westbourne Drive. There are also numerous progress rainbow flags with the MISTR logo hanging at businesses around Santa Monica Boulevard for WeHo Pride weekend, letting the community know that MISTR WeHo is coming soon.
