Perch lived up to the positive reviews. Food was great - truffle cheese fries are not to be missed. Views are fantastic, service was excellent and the live music was a perfect accompaniment. Highly recommended.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
