This post will act as one of many photography based post as well as being my very first blog entry. I'm excited to show everyone the random adventures I take while living in SoCal! I plan to use this blog to showcase not only these LA adventures, but also some creative inspiration I might find.
So what is there to say about the LA Arts District.....
It's clean! This probably has to be one of the most cleanest spots in LA you could possibly find! I would even go as far as to say it is the "Irvine" of LA. As I walked up and down these streets, I felt a strange sense that I was home. Everywhere you look there is some form of art present. I came to the LA Arts District with a friend of mine and we were taken back by all that there was to see. The lofts, street art, and even the people seemed to be as though they were somehow apart of this area. The buildings themselves were even giant installations both new and old next to each other showing a perfect example of contrast between new and old. Its warehouse spaces showcase self-expressive dilapidation and reimagined artistic interpretation. After taking a moment to walk around and getting to know the area more, we started to feel a bit hungry and with the help of Yelp, we were off to find lunch. We came across a couple of organic places but none really caught our eye like Urth Caffe! This organic heaven has some of the best tasting food and beverages I have personally ever had. A bold statement but it is true. Coming into the Caffe your senses go crazy over the decor, smell of fresh expresso, pasties, and more. I ended up using a Yelp review to choose what to order which I ended up getting The "New Yorker" Sandwich (A classic Rueben sandwich with all natural pastrami with Russian dressing, braised green cabbage, imported Swiss cheese on thick slices of Marble bread. Grilled golden brown and served with a mixed greens salad & cornichon pickles) and a Spanish Latte (A sweet, creamy cafe latte inspired by coffee in Barcelona). This meal blew me away with all the flavor that was jammed into my sandwich and the rich creamy goodness that was my latte.
The LA Arts District: Insatiable creative energy and unstoppable trendiness emanate from the walls of its swiftly repurposing warehouse spaces and industrial-inspired artists' lofts. Galleries, studios, and connoisseurs of coffee, cocktails, and challenging concepts crowd into this unmistakably-painted bastion for incoming artists and fresh-faced visionaries.
