If you're​ a museum junkie, MOCA has to be on your list. Recently went for a political discussion. There is always something interesting being offered. The area around MOCA is a cultural haven.

This is a smallish outpost at the Pacific Design Center. This place is larger once you're inside. It's uniquely curated apart from the MOCA downtown, and also uniquely free. It's often worth the visit just by itself. A few years ago I got to see...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
