Part of the fun of walking around this city is stumbling onto gems, building from the past with stories to tell. It is a worthy example of a French Art Deco highrise. You can steal your way into the building and walk around

Over-the-top art deco interior design and architecture. We were knocked out when we had dinner here. This is one of LA's gems and it's amazing it has survived all of the changes downtown.

The Oviatt's interior is stunning. It's a spectacular location for a wedding. The two rooftop terraces are wonderful. The bride/ groom room is gorgeous. I really can't say enough about the Oviatt. The setting, the food, and the service were all great.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
