Voodoo Doughtnut is coming to CityWalk Hollywood

May 15, 2016, 4:56 PM · Portland's iconic Voodoo Doughnut is coming to CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood. Portland newspaper The Oregonian reported that Voodoo representatives let the news slip during a publicity event Friday night. A formal announcement is expected on Monday, with the restaurant expected to open this fall. [Update: (May 18) Universal Studios Hollywood confirmed the news on Wednesday afternoon.]

If you like the crazy topping combinations available at Universal's Lard Lad Donuts, you'll love Voodoo — which was one of the originators of wild concoctions such as Maple Bacon Bars and Cap'n Crunch-topped doughnuts. But Voodoo might better be known for its more, uh, adult offerings. This is the place where you can order a donut topped with a pentagram, shaped like a blunt, or even made to represent... uh, well... manly things.

We don't yet know how racy the CityWalk Voodoo will get, but presumably, this would be the first Voodoo location in the United States not to be open 24 hours most days of the week. Four of Voodoo Doughnut's five other U.S. locations — two in Portland, one in Denver and one in Austin — are open around the clock, while one in Eugene, Ore. is closed only from midnight to 6am Monday through Wednesday. CityWalk Hollywood officially closes sometime between 9-11pm most nights, though the theaters and some of the nightclubs stay open later.

After the initial few weeks you don't find many locals lining up to get them anymore. It's all tourists and lines are non-existent.
