just in front of the Bradbury Building. The front entrance was used in the film Blade Runner as entrance of Sebastian home, expecially for his particular works and sculptures. Nice place where to stop a couple of minutes for some photos.

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
