About West Adams

West Adams is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city of Los Angeles and is between two major highways: the 10 and 110. Traveling by car in this area is the best course, but don't fret if you don't own an automobile because there are a number of public transportation options available. The neighborhood has experienced a bit of a renaissance recently, as many of the older buildings have been designated by the local historic preservation society for having outstanding architectural heritage design. Residents have fully embraced this rich history and look forward to what the future has in store because West Adams is currently under a massive reconstruction project. Craftsman-style homes still align along each street and perfectly blend with the culture offered by the Latino and LGBTQ communities in the area.

West Adams has plenty of food options with some of the newer restaurants near USC offering an absolutely gorgeous view from their outdoor patios. Don't be fooled by the word "restaurant" for the more established local bar & grills because the inside atmosphere can hold its own against the competition. Patrons typically have dinner and then stay afterwards for some drinks in these vintage-style bars. Both dining options offer a full bar menu of craft beers and mixed drinks, plus the food menu offers great local cuisine.
