Loved all the little details of this place. From the nice windows to the rooftop tiki bar, everything was well done & unique. It’s downtown so it’s noisy and if you can’t handle that don’t stay downtown. Parking is extremely expensive just like everywhere else.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

yea. what i was getting at is EMPLOYERS are supposed to pay for their employees health insurance, not the customer. and since the prices were not cheap for the food I'm guessing that the management is just pocketing profits.
