Faith and Flower

Paying homage to the 1920s, Faith and Flower is known for their top-notch happy hour menu that features classics like fresh oysters and Old Fashions. If you end up staying later, the dinner menu doesn’t hurt either.





Just when you thought farm-to-table referred to the food menu only, Redbird manages to bring back this original method to their cocktail selection, with the majority made from plants grown right on site. Clearly known for their cocktail game, Redbird has a drink to suite anyone’s taste. From Pina Coladas to unique concoctions sure to impress, this popular downtown bodega is great for first dates or special occasions.





Enjoy your date night, literally 71 floors up with sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles. This sumptuous spot is perfect for anniversaries, birthdays or when you just want a fancy night out. Be sure to reserve a window table beforehand and don’t be surprised if the sunset views are even more pretty than the food.





Located at the Broad Museum, this box-shaped restaurant made of wood, glass and metal could easily be mistaken for an extension of an art installation. On your third or fourth date? This casual, yet sophisticated spot that takes all the pressure of fine dining off your back. The menu is experimental, but down-to-earth so you don’t need to worry if you’re not the daring type.


Bar Amá



Head to Bar Amá and you’re guaranteed to have a good time. This tex-mex spot is perfect for happy hour (also known as Super Nacho Hour) where they serve up delicious margaritas and sangria as well as their infamous super nachos that also come in a vegan option. Unlike most restaurants, happy hour runs decent hours at 5:00-7:30, as well as after dinner.
