'The Wheelhouse' is a hybrid bike shop that doubles as a coffee bar. As cycling rises in popularity -- particularly among millennials -- there is a growing demand for spaces that accommodate the cycling community. This shop combines bikes services with coffee for a different kind of cafe experience.

The Wheelhouse is an LA-based bike shop located in the city's Arts District. The 3,700-square-foot space is a hybrid bike shop that also doubles as a cafe. The main floor boasts a full-service coffee bar where patrons can purchase crafted coffee and tea beverages. Upstairs there is a service department that offers everything from quick repairs to full restoration jobs. The entire space is tied together by the decor, which consists of vintage bikes and other carefully curated accessories.
