Despite the trying times of a pandemic, another sign of San Pedro's evolution into the best up and coming neighborhood has arrived. Acme 5 Lifestyle opened on 624 Pacific Ave in October, 2020. The interior store highlights beautiful finds, while the basement level includes an exclusive art gallery section.
Acme 5 Lifestyle was created by production designer Anton Goss, in 2017, as a Field of Dreams, “build it and they will come” endeavor. Having designed television sets for Oprah Winfrey or music shows like “The Voice”, he used this opportunity to move out of the studio and into the tactile world of living environmental design. Acme 5 has grown to include a full set of lifestyle related products, ranging from custom leather couches, specimen aloe trees and beautifully finished handmade teak furniture, to fire pits carved from boulders... The brand is ever evolving and meandering through the stream of creativity and opportunity.
Stores are located in Santa Monica, Yucca Valley and Sane Pedro.

And while it took the coronavirus pandemic to get it on the fast track, the results, restaurant owners said they hope, will go a long way toward both adding to the downtown’s ambiance and toward helping them stay in business.
