Map & Directions

Reminiscent of New York City’s SoHo District, the Historic Core has become one of the most vibrant pockets of the newly vitalized Downtown Los Angeles. Located on Main Street, between 6th and 7th Streets, The Mercantile Lofts is at the epicenter of a unique dining, entertainment and nightlife scene. Within walking distance is Cole’s French Dip, one of the oldest operating restaurants in Los Angeles, and a venerable LA institution. Within Cole’s is Varnish, a speak-easy consistently ranked as one of the best mixology bars in the city. The Association, also adjacent to The Mercantile, is a favorite local nightclub—but don’t look for a sign because there isn't one. Within the keenly curated 6th and Main corridor are other retailers such as Baby Cakes NYC, featuring vegan cupcakes; Mignon, a chic wine bar; and the Phil Stern Art Gallery. The Historic Core is the place to be for hip urbanites, yet within reach of Downtown’s other vibrant shopping and work districts—like the adjacent Fashion District, Financial District or South Park.
