The DTLA Entrepreneur Directory is a partnership between DTLANation and The LA Downtown News that aspires to recognize the startups working in the adaptive reuse spaces of LA's new metropolis. It's easy to see what's at ground level, but a huge and often under represented part of the re-birth of DTLA is all the amazing people working in the lofts above. The Directory is a free guide to those entrepreneurs and a monthly ad in the paper featuring individuals doing great things.
The DTLA Dinner Club began as a group of friends gathering every Wednesday night in 2011 on the roof of The El Dorado for a home cooked meal. Now, three years later, it's a weekly free gathering of downtowners featuring guest chefs from the neighborhood. Still occurring every Wednesday night, guests bring their own liquor and the rest is just three hours of fun. No agenda and only your neighbors are allowed.
