GUEST,Lin The Blue Grotto Coffeehouse Los Angeles (42) RE: The Blue Grotto Coffeehouse Los Angeles 29 Oct 17

Yes, The Blue Grotto was actually on Fairfax Ave - a 1/2 block south of Santa Monica Blvd. (not between Melrose & Canters)

There was another place called "The Infinite Mind" located on Fairfax and just a little north of Beverly Blvd. on the east side of the street. Kind of a head shop that sold candles & incense, love beads & all kinds of things in the front. In the back behind a curtain of sorts was where they always had a strobe light and incense burning at night time with music being played. People (teenagers mostly or early 20's would go back there and sit on the floor and listen to music by
The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Donovan, etc) and just hang out.

It wasn't a coffeehouse like The Blue Grotto though.
Such fun days- we were all teenagers, 15 & 16 & 17 years old (my friends) NO CELL PHONES & SMART PHONES THEN - & we still had fun and actually TALKED TO EACH OTHER :-)) & didn't have our heads in a downward position constantly checking a cell phone. So glad we didn't have that technology then. We were happy kids!
