Feel free to wear period dress and try out your swing dance moves. The Cicada Club is a delightful look at Hollywood from the 1920's - 1940's. Food is average, but the entertainment is a blast. Try to catch the Satin Dolls.

This is a beautiful place to go if you like Art Deco. The food is delicious (although a bit pricey), and it is a great place to go for drinks in the upstairs bar, if nothing else, just to appreciate the decor.

I would recommend the Cicada Club (Sunday nights at Cicada Restaurant) for a fun step-back-in-time supper club. The historic 1928 art deco Oviatt Bldg is gorgeous, and the past is brought to life by a variety of 1930s (&1940s-ish) entertainers and a very well-dressed crowd...More

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
