I spent a day museum hopping with my cousin DTLA and she told me about a pop-up dining experience where you dine inside a cube of projections. I said Let's Go, and that evening we found ourselves outside a nondescript warehouse nearby - eager, curious, and excited.
After welcome drinks and a brief description of the event by Montgomery, the incredible creator himself, you find yourself with about 18 other people, entering the darkened cavern of the empty warehouse. Glowing in it's center is a huge cube lined with tables. An innovative five course meal paired with wines (with Veg/Vegan/Gluten Free Options), 2 hours of creative experimental short videos/art films surrounding you, and a live performance midway of a weekly changing roster of local artists make for a magical evening. For a couple hours you are completely transported, senses are heightened and stimulated, and there's a lingering afterglow of having witnessed something beautifully unique.
My personal background is in Design (Art/Architecture/Theatre), and I am constantly traveling the world in search of exciting and beautiful experiences, so this spoke to my heart in so many ways. In the 90's I started exploring a growing passion for designing experiences and had always wanted to witness the London Based team, Bompas & Parr, with their grand and temporary culinary events - and here it is.
So lovers of intimate creative experiences, foodies, film & art enthusiasts - go soon because it's in the final weeks of it's final installment here in Los Angeles, ending a 7 year tour around the world.
