Product Description

DTLA / 37

Diverse communities and unexpected establishments convey the colorful nature of this ever-changing place. You’ll get a VIP pass into Dim Mak Records’ dance/pool party, ringside seats to the uproarious Lucha VaVOOM! wrestling and burlesque show, and a plus-one on the guest list to the hippest musical off Broadway. Then meet iconic figures such as famed muralist Kent Twitchell and quirky denizens like the owner of the Velveteria museum in Chinatown. Perhaps you’ll even meet the ghost of Rudolph Valentino wandering the halls of the Hotel Alexandria.
