The weirdest downtown EVER »

4.0 Stars

When I think of downtown anywhere, I think of a central business district and yuppies in cafes with their designer drinks and MacBooks.
With this in mind, I used to HATE coming to DTLA because the abundance of hobos and lack of life during the weekend days was quite eerie.

I have now grown to enjoy it (mainly because my knife-wielding friend took me on what he called the Nitty Gritty City tour) and saw some realness to it. The gentrification actually turned me off a little.

There are MUCH better places in LA. Downtown is kind of a shit hole.

Downtown LA is the urban renewal story of LA. Shitty neighborhood where the homeless live turned into bourgy lofts and growing nightlife scene.

Its also the civic center and full of lawyers.

Actually a lot of the nightlife is pretty upscale.

Healthy dose of dives, some are like real deal scary and there's definitely some serious homeless action going on still...
