In 2013, Downtown L.A. welcomed its first and only brewery. After massive restoration of a 100-year-old Art Deco brick building that includes the original floor tile work in the lobby, Angel City added a wavy moustache-shaped bar to serve its crafted suds to thirsty after work and nightlife-seeking patrons. Staging of special events, from art openings to music CD release parties and Taco Tuesdays, occur with regularity; food trucks convene in front and carry-in food is permitted. And, an on-site retail store offers basic essentials.
A perpetually rotating selection of old school, small batch, crafted beers is poured from the tap, with several exclusively available at the brewery. Tours are arranged by appointment to walk you through the brewing process and the historical context of the building.
Angel City’s unabashedly funky warehouse presence brings a cool, casual, and lively dimension to the burgeoning Renaissance of Downtown L.A. For more new L.A. discoveries go here
