DTLA Book

an annual coffee table guide book — coming to boutique hotels and RETAIL shops in Spring 2018.

Great cities have great moments—Paris in the 1920s, London in the 1960s, Berlin in the 1990s. Downtown Los Angeles in the 2010s?  We think so. In bars and restaurants, stores and galleries, concert halls and theaters, lofts and creative offices the excitement is infectious. Watching all this, we decided to put together this book to share what’s happening. We soon realized that a great moment is defined by the people who create it. Read and feel our city, our people, and our moment. We hope that our stories will make you put our book down and go out to experience DTLA for yourself.

WHY DISTRICT 8?

District 8 Media is the fictional space where our company operates. According to numerology, the number eight balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the number is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet it is not greedy; it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks. And if you rotate it 90˚, it transforms into the infinity symbol.
