Hello Honorable Pub Crawlers!
Let us ring in the New Year by gathering again for the Downtown Art Walk
and post walk cocktailing!
The Art Walk has become a VERY popular monthly event Downtown, hundreds of people are all over the few blocks full of Galleries and Bars. There are street musicians, punch bowls and sangria, people on stilts and other general interestingness...
We always have a great time at this one, as you can see in these pictures
Let's meet at Origami again!:Origami Bistro & Bar Downtown
257 S. Spring Street #101
Los Angeles, CA 90012
This is a lovely Sushi Bar & Lounge at the corner of 3rd and Spring - They have a delicious happy hour menu until 7:30 PM (page 3 of this PDF
), so it'll be perfect for those of us who want to get a bite before we head out to the galleries.
We'll gather there between 6 and 7ish. We'll head out on the walk between 7 and 7:30.
Afterwards, Mesha and Sherrell are coordinating a new post-walk libation source; we're rolling into a new bar?The Association around 9PM. If you can?t make Art Walk or you lost us for some reason or just want to meet there afterwards well then MEET US HERE!
PLEASE NOTE that its one of those places with no signage, just an address, so look for a black doorway like this with address number 110 on it (near Cole?s):
And inside you?ll see this:
And then this:
And we will be somewhere within. Here are some excerpts of reviews on Yelp.com
?Its swanky but not pretentious, and is really comfy (like Mesha)?..downtown's best kept secret (like Bill (editor's note: Mesha wrote that! Not me!))?..lush yet low key (like Sherrell)?..the closest thing LA has to a British social club?..awesome mix of music 70s -90s, from old school rap to disco?..drinks are ones that remind me of London and SF, using fresh ingredients and care, unlike the usual crap you find elsewhere???NUFF SAID!!!!
Here is the address, and a link to a recent article in the LA Times about The Association
The Association - under the Pacific Street Lofts, next to Cole?s:
110 E. 6th Street @ Main St.
Los Angeles, CA 90014
Here is a Google Map of both Origami and the Association, as well as the area we'll be artwalking
This event has become a defining cultural experience for Downtown life. Come on out and see the nighttime city at it's finest!
See you there!
