As the holiday’s near, downtown LA will start dressing up for the holiday season, beginning in November to New Year’s Eve. And then there’s the Fashion District, one of the most upbeat places in the city. If you’re looking for food and an incredibly festive atmosphere, it’s time you changed your plans and head to DTLA in the fashion district.
While you won’t be seeing snow in this part of the world, there are still a ton of things to look forward to in your holiday visit including meals and celebrations with friends, most specifically in Los Angeles’ Fashion District.
After bargain hunting and enjoying all the festive feels at The Santee Alley, the next logical activity is to try the numerous food places scattered nearby. Luckily, The Fashion District is home to several top restaurants from almost every culinary influence, from themed restaurants serving authentic American-Italian cuisine to fusion restaurants with their modern takes on old favorites.
Number one on our list is a well waited for meal at DAMA which has quickly become one of the best restaurants in DTLA.
One of the best-reviewed Latin American and South American fusion restaurants in recent memory, DAMA received much fanfare owing to, well, a lot of things really: from its fusion of various South American flavors as expressed by celebrity chef Antonia Lofaso to its impressive cocktail bar and wine selection. The restaurant’s exterior has a patio with banquets and tables, and the interior has a massive wrap-around bar and wicker chairs, further adding to the Cuban art deco motif. It’s huge interior and cozy and welcoming atmosphere is perfect for a holiday celebration as it has room to fit large parties and an ambiance that welcomes all the fun and joy. With a cocktail bar this good and a menu any one would love, you’ll be sure to have something to celebrate.
So if you’re down to sip some of L.A.’s best cocktails while the city lights up the sky for the New Year, head on over to DAMA for the holidays.
