5 Things That Prove DTLA Is Unlike Anywhere Else on Earth
What’s it like being in the best area of the best city in the world? Simply put, there’s never a dull moment. DTLA has grown to be a vibrant epicenter with a personality of its own. From fantastic places to eat to robot bartenders (we promise we’ll explain), there’s no shortage of new experiences to discover. Plus, the sense of community and belonging is unmatched, making it the ideal home for every kind of lifestyle. We should know — since WREN Apartments is in DTLA’s South Park neighborhood, we have a front row seat to all the action. We can give you five reasons why Downtown LA is unlike anywhere else!
1. Places like the Two Bit Circus

Remember the robot bartender we mentioned? You’ll find it shaking cocktails (and maybe even flirting with customers) at Two Bit Circus, the first “micro-amusement park” in DTLA. The over 35,000 square feet of space features a mix of high-tech virtual reality experiences, interactive shows, escape rooms, and classic arcade games. So, once you break free from an escape room, you can maybe play a few games of Skee-Ball or perhaps float on a virtual raft being attacked by demons. Private game rooms are available, but making new friends is highly encouraged.
2. The Arts
It probably goes without saying that the DTLA arts and culture scene is truly something to be admired. Los Angeles boasts a reputation as a vibrant, creative, diverse, and thriving city, and it has long attracted scores of talented artists, enthusiastic historians, and expert and novice art lovers from all over the world. It makes for an incredible museum experience unlike any other. Since WREN’s South Park luxury apartments are in the heart of downtown, some of the nation’s most celebrated museums just happen to be right around the corner from us.
When you talk about DTLA arts and culture, you absolutely must discuss The Broad. Since its opening approximately two years ago, over a million visitors have descended upon its massive gallery space.

The fashion industry in downtown Los Angeles rivals that of New York and other heavy hitters. For this reason, it’s no wonder that DTLA has a fantastic museum memorializing the artists who have helped shape our culture through clothing and accessory design.
The Museum of Contemporary Art
Yes, contemporary art is making another appearance on the list. We couldn’t leave you without mentioning MOCA.
3. Inclusivity and Diversity
This may come as no surprise. Los Angeles has long been known as one of the most diverse cities in the United States and nowhere is it more evident than in the downtown area. Everywhere you go, you get the feeling that you’re being welcomed with open arms. What’s more, it’s not just about celebrating a variety of cultures and ethnicities. No matter the industry you’re in, the amount of education you have, the sexual orientation you are, or the language you speak, you’ll find acceptance and opportunity in DTLA.
4. Celebrity Chef Restaurants
For many people, the word “celebrity” naturally stirs up images of Los Angeles and Hollywood. It’s a pretty accurate association; it’s not unusual to spot your favorite movie star walking down the street. But, it’s not just movie buffs getting a thrill. Culinary fans get their fill as well. As a food mecca, downtown attracts some of the most famous chefs in the world. For example, you can check out Wolfgang Puck’s WP24 or Eddie Huang’s Baohaus. Moreover, Kuniko Yagi of Top Chef fame is opening a highly-anticipated Japanese dining spot in Row DTLA next month!
