Redbird is carved into one of the city’s most historic architectural gems — located inside the former Cathedral of Saint Vibiana.

There’s no way to grasp the size and scope of ROW DTLA without seeing it in person — the impressive curation of places to eat, shop, work, and chill includes Japanese food at Hayato (order a bento box), and the flakiest, crunchiest fried chicken we’ve ever had at chef Kuniko Yagi’s Pikunico. Stores focus on local businesses like Erica Tanov, Kinto, Ahlem, and Bodega—arguably the most well-stocked sneaker store in the city. On weekends, the streets are closed off to cars, leaving ample space to walk around and explore; be sure to stop by on Sundays, when Smorgasburg LA’s food trucks take over next door at the Alameda Produce Market.
New to DTLA, Kinto focuses on striking a balance between beauty and functionality in building out the ultimate home cook’s kitchen.

Perhaps one of the most significant things to come from the Ace Hotel's renovation of the historic United Artists Building was the restoration of the original Theatre, built in the 1920s and extravagantly decorated with Gothic design flourishes. The three-story space is one of the city's most important architectural gems, and under the art direction of the Ace it's also become a hotspot for some of the coolest cultural activities in LA
