Drinks & Nightlife

You have to go to the alley behind subway to find this gem. It is under the Milner Hotel right across the street from the loft. Great Drink / Great Vibe. My favorite nightlife spot in DTLA.

A lovely prohibition style bar hidden inside the back of Cole's Restaurant. The door looks normal, so just ask the host if you're not sure where to go.

Great sports bars with dozens of TVs to watch the most popular sporting events. The wings are fantastic, and so is the bloody mary.

Food Scene

Great restaurant right across the street. You have to try the bone marrow appetizer. I think i'd classify the cuisine as gourmet comfort food.

My favorite Italian restaurant in the city. Great hand pressed/tossed pasta made daily and its BYOB. So bring a bottle of wine and friends and have a great time.

The Baco Mercat sandwich is the signature dish. It comes in a few different varieties, I'd go with the original (carnitas) or the Toron (ox tail).

I usually opt for the burger at the bar, since I never make reservations to get a table. As far as chain steakhouses are concerned, Morton's is a strong option.

Right outside of Grand Central Market, with mostly outdoor seating, this place brings traditional BBQ to DTLA (which trust me, is hard to find).

Huge Club that hosts a lot of popular DJs. One of the few places that stays open past 2am (closes at 6am), although they stop serving alcohol at 2am. Great sound system, large venue. Line can get long
