On Tuesday, the Lowell Cafe opened in West Hollywood, California — and the restaurant is unlike any other in the United States.
“For over a century we’ve been forced to hide cannabis consumption out of public view, but that time is now over,” the cafe writes on its website. “We’re proud to announce Lowell Cafe — America’s first cannabis cafe serving farm fresh food, coffee, juice, and cannabis daily.”
The Lowell Cafe is a 21+ establishment featuring 240 seats and both indoor and outdoor dining spaces. To ensure the interior spaces aren’t thick with smoke, the restaurant features a high-tech air filtration system.
While the chefs at the Lowell Cafe won’t serve marijuana-infused foods, prepackaged marijuana edibles are available for purchase on site. Patrons can also purchase cannabis flowers, vapes, concentrates, and extracts — and then consume them right at their table.
More to Come
The Lowell Cafe won’t be the only restaurant to serve Californians marijuana for long, either — West Hollywood has already awarded seven other cafes or restaurants licenses allowing for the public consumption of cannabis.
