Cast Your Vote – Help Save the Formosa Café!

West Hollywood’s Formosa Café is one of twenty-five projects on historic Main Streets across the country competing in the Partners in Preservation: Main Streets Program. This program provides funding for rehabilitation work, determined by popular vote, with the online voting portal hosted by National Geographic. The beloved Formosa Café, which opened in 1925 on Route 66, will be rehabilitated if funding is received, preserving an icon for future generations. Located across the street from a major movie studio, the Formosa was a favorite of numerous celebrities, as well as mobsters. Threatened by development pressures, places like the Formosa Cafe are exceedingly rare today. This project will help its owners keep the building alive. Log on and cast your vote daily between now and October 31, to help the Formosa, shuttered since December, win much-needed funding!
