Located in the historic Boyle Heights community of Los Angeles, Brooklyn Ave Pizza Co. sits beneath one of Los Angeles’ longest-running music and events venue, The Paramount LA. Operating for nearly a century, it still serves as a creative outlet for burgeoning and prominent artists.
The building has been home to the Jewish Bakers Union of LA during the early 20th century, and Boyle Heights Community Kitchen. The restaurant’s name is inspired by its location in BH along Cesar E Chavez Avenue (formerly known as Brooklyn Avenue).
Colorful flavors and scents inspired by the neighborhood, not only will you find the classics but an adventure in flavor awaits! The team works every day to bring you the best pizza, made with the best ingredients and a whole lotta love!
BAPCO cocktails are crafted by Lauren Corriveau and Matthew Belanger, both bar-industry veterans: we are super proud to work with them, bringing creative twists on local favs. Beer & wine thoughtfully curated FOR YOU by the crew at BAPCO.
BH native/ Chef-Owner Mario Christerna and our team are truly humbled to continue the legacy of music, food and memories of this space as it defines us. We pay tribute to the history of the community, and will remain a hub for people to connect and have a good time!View Menu

The Boyle Heights Arts Conservatory, a non-profit that advocates for the development of a new framework toward diversity in the creative arts, media, and technology fields—one that is socially and economically inclusive, and accurately reflects the City of Los Angeles in terms of ethnicity, gender, and age.
“The most effect way to do this, we understand, is by dismantling the many barriers to equal opportunities in the arts and creative industries, so that they, as well as those interested in pursuing such careers therein, can truly grow and thrive.”
