Playing to his strengths as an independent artist, R-Mean and his team knew they had to conquer the merch game and began designing merchandise directly connected to his music, culture, and roots.
Seeing the organic growth in their brand, the team decided to lease a kiosk at one of the largest malls in LA, The Americana at Brand. Seeing the success of that venture, they decided to grow their space while providing a platform for others artists to showcase and sell their merchandise and work. Taking another major leap of faith they opened The Pentagon LA, a creative space, recording studio and store in Glendale, CA on December 17, 2017. A year later, the team opened location #2 in North Hollywood, CA.
Housing artist related merchandise, walls bearing local art, photography, memorabilia, and a recording studio, The Pentagon LA is a creative space all in the name of ART, MUSIC, & CULTURE. A space that gives local & worldwide artists the ability to physically showcase & sell their work through pop-ups and events.
The Pentagon LA a creative space and store. Where you can showcase and sell your talents! Not your regular store, we house events and POP-UP’s for brands, independents, and artists of all genres. Whether you want to buy some good looking and comfortable street wear or host your next album release, poetry night, product launch, or to record your next hit!
After years of working in the entertainment industry, as independents in music with our own record label, Pentagon Records, we realized we needed a hub, a headquarters, where we could showcase not only our work but those of other independents like ourselves who also need a space to bring together like minded people and change the world. The Pentagon LA allows independents like ourselves a physical space to sell & showcase merchandise and art that is specific to not only art but our city. We are only as strong as those who surround us, we must work together and uplift one another to achieve greatness. We hope that you will feel at home when you walk through our doors.
– Representing the Independent movement, with firm beliefs in the culture we support those who want to make it on their own!
