Tesla Moves To Open A 24-Hour Diner, Complete With A Theater, Charging Ports
By Alexa Heah, 26 May 2022
Back in 2018—yes, four years ago—Elon Musk tweeted about the concept of a branded restaurant, decked out with an “old school drive in,” roller skates, and of course, Tesla Superchargers.
Now, reports have emerged from Bloomberg that the electric automaker could finally be realizing that dream, having submitted to the City of Los Angeles earlier this month detailing plans for a 24-hour Hollywood diner that would have its own movie theatre and charging stations.
The 9,300-square-foot restaurant will be located on Santa Monica Boulevard, replacing a Shakey’s Pizza outpost, while competing with Trejos Coffee & Donuts and McDonald’s just mere blocks away.
According to Robb Report, it’s been said the diner, which could resemble one of the brand’s gigafactories, will span two floors with a total of 218 indoor and outdoor seats. The upper floor will feature a special theater decked out with two huge 45-foot LED movie screens at the north and west end of the parking lot.
While you’re grabbing a bite or watching the latest flick, you’ll be able to juice up your Tesla at one of the 28 superchargers on site. Or if you’re feeling particularly introverted, there’s even a feature to get your food delivered right to your vehicle.
Unsurprisingly, with Musk being a leading proponent of cryptocurrency, it’s likely the restaurant will accept alternative modes of payment, including Dogecoin.
What kind of food will Tesla serve up at its first-ever food outlet? Fingers crossed we get a sneak peek at the menu soon.
