SmogShoppe 

SmogShoppe is a multi-use event space that was once a 1980’s Smog Check station. Now powered 100% by solar energy, the LEED platinum event space hosts weddings, parties, film and PR events in a 6,500 square foot courtyard and pavillion. The courtyard is lined with lush succulent living walls that create a green backdrop for events; the outside of the SmogShoppe is wrapped in green walls that are visible from the street.
