The Downtowner: Shuffling the Shops

A stretch of Sixth Street in downtown San Pedro has seen a number of comings and goings in recent weeks.

Downtown Subs and More has closed its doors at the northeast corner of Nelson Street, in the 300 block of Sixth Street. The owner is maintaining the family’s next-door shop, Boca Wear.

One door down, Under the Bridge Bookstore and Gallery has just moved up and over to 411 Sixth Street, in the space that Born to Party previously occupied.

Under the Bridge is holding several housewarming events in its new location.

An open mic night is set for 7:30 p.m. on March 29 and the bookstore will be open until 9 p.m. on April 3 for First Thursday. Its month-long sale in April will offer discounts on the entire inventory of new and used books.

Goodfellas Bar, formerly the Porthole, will expand into the space Under the Bridge has vacated.

Neighboring Sixth Street Bistro has gotten a full makeover, with a new look, menu, chef/manager and owners.
