Downtown, Los Angeles –
Situated in the middle of the Downtown Arts District, The Falls is a cozy, nature-themed haunt that attracts a clientele of laid-back professionals and fashion-conscious denizens of Downtown L.A.
Once past the carved wood door, patrons will find a one-room lounge with a quirky décor full of conversation pieces, from the gold tree-trunk tables and crystal tube chandeliers to a wall that resembles a wood pile and a signature sculpture/digital waterfall that gives the bar its name.
Tastefully understated yet stylish yuppies arrive in throngs to chat over specialty cocktails with names like Satan’s Whiskers, while well-dressed average Joes check their fragmented reflections in the mirror-tile ceiling before flirting with office gals perched on high stools at the stone-backed bar.
A pair of inset booths offer space for groups to hang out in the amber glow of artistic globe lamps, whose light is reflected in the graphic metal stencil pattern that makes up the unique 2D wall covering.
Known as the “happy sister” of The Woods, The Falls maintains an easygoing, low-key atmosphere perfect for social butterflies looking for good drinks and friendly company.
Fashionable downtown locals and laid-back young professionals, 20s and 30s.
Nightly DJs spin a mix of rock, soul, indie, 80s, and electronic Tu–Sa from 10pm. Otherwise, ambient music from oldies to classic rock and underground dance.
Trail mix snacks at the bar. Happy Hour M–F 5–8pm.
Beer $6–$8, wine $6–$8, cocktails $10, mixed drinks $8–$10, shots $8–$10.
Casual chic to trendy: guys in button downs, flannels, and jeans, and girls in jeans and heels or casual dresses.
Fridays and Saturdays for a solid weekend crowd.
A couple blocks north on Spring Street is Top Chef winner Ilan Hall’s eclectic downtown restaurant The Gorbals (501 South Spring Street), which offers an incredibly diverse menu that simply has to be seen – or eaten – to be believed.
