The Bridge Diner from The Equalizer: Filming Location

This is the Bridge Diner from The Equalizer (2014).

It is located at 25 Everett Avenue in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

In real life, the building is home to a family-owned business called Chelsea Floor Covering.

Columbia Pictures rented the store in 2013. It then spent two months converting the northern side of the property into an old-fashioned all-night diner.

A team of more than 20 carpenters worked on the conversion. Artists were also employed to make the interior look worn and weathered.

The Bridge Diner is featured at the start of the movie, when former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) operative Robert McCall befriends a young escort called Alina (aka Teri).

McCall gives the young woman life advice and tells her that she can be anything that she wants to be. He also encourages her to pursue her dream of becoming a singer.

When she explains that it's not possible in "her world", he replies, "Change your world."

The main plot of the movie starts shortly afterwards, when McCall finds out that Alina has been hospitalized by her pimp.

The store has been the home of a family-owned business called Chelsea Floor Covering for many years.

Columbia Pictures rented it in 2013 before spending two months converting it into an all-night cafe for The Equalizer (2014).

The owners agreed to rent it out after a location scout for the movie studio walked into the store and asked them if they'd like to take some time off.
