It's going to be a night on the town in DTLA. Let's skip the loud, pretentious I-just-got-my-first-paycheck-let's-get-drunk crowd and see what the neighborhood has to offer. We've got a finely curated collection of five establishments lined up for you ranging from speakeasy to British pub. Shine up your dress shoes, dress for the night and find a friend to join what is guaranteed to be some fun meandering.

About Your Guide
I am the head of product at a VR company, but in my free time, you can find me hiking to the Hollywood sign, ordering craft cocktails downtown, biking on the boardwalk in Santa Monica, and sampling bulgogi in Koreatown.
