Less than 2 miles from LEVEL Furnished Living is one of the hippest neighborhoods in Downtown Los Angeles. Catering to young and creative types, the Arts District is made up of industrial warehouses-turned-homes and art-covered streets. Among them lie art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bars with exposed brick walls and floor to ceiling windows. In a city where walkability is rare, the Arts District is a welcome change. We’re giving you the LEVEL lowdown of the best places to eat, drink and take in this colorful neighborhood.
Eat & Drink

What was once the loading dock of the National Biscuit Company is now a traditional French bistro. Serving high quality French fare, Church and State’s menu includes classic dishes like Steak Frites and Escargot as well as a selection of French and American artisanal cheeses. Open since 2008, much of the Arts District’s revitalization is owed to Church and State’s success.
