Ground Zero currently under renovations. It was a completely student-run coffeehouse (sorry, no coffee, tea or milkshakes for 2017-2018) and performance venue located on the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles, California, known for their deliciously creative milkshakes, awesome free shows, and relaxed atmosphere.
