Downtown Los Angeles is in a sense the heart of the city of angels.


What to see in Downtown? Downtown is the neighborhood where there are corporate offices and modern buildings to marvel at, but also many shops where you can go shopping in a pure LA Style. The neighborhood deserves at least half a day of your vacation and, if you have some time ahead, you could also explore the MOCA, the Museum dedicated to contemporary arts. These are some of the main and most common things a tourist usually do in this area of Los Angeles..


What if there’s something more than that?


All these places and thing to do it is basically what you can see on the surface of this well-known touristic area but, if you take a closer look you are going to discover a new incredible place to live amazing colorful and tasty experiences: we are talking about Piñata District.


Exploring the Piñata District


The Piñata District isn't officially recognized by the city and it is like a little microcosm apart from the rest of the Fashion District. As time goes by Piñata District hasn't stopped itself from developing into a thriving wholesale and retail hub as the Southland becomes increasingly Latino and people from other cultures adopting the piñata as a party staple. So, if you are tired of all the modern side of the city and just want to explore some hidden unique place, Piñata District is what’s best for you!

Mexican street food, candies, music.. Your piñata district’s exploration is going to show you a different aspect of Los Angeles you really won’t expect! A complete surprise! Of course here you can find the craziest piñatas ever but, even if you are not up to throw a party, this place is going to give you so much more than just some inspiration for you next festivity’s bash! You are going to full immerse into a Latino and Mexican culture made up of piñatas, of course, but also discovering the festival side of this precious culture that it is so different from  all the others we are used to know. So, while you are living your shopping session in Downtown Los Angeles, be sure to get to East Olympic Avenue near South Central Avenue and let you guide by the colors, the smells and the positive vibes of Piñata District!
