Today, it's home to a smorgasbord of Downtown LA restaurants, shops, bars, offices, and of course, event spaces. All the individual eclectic parts that makeup ROW truly encompass the creativity of the Arts District of LA.
At ROW, you'll find everything from clothing stores in Downtown, hotels, speakeasy sneaker shops, Instagram sandwiches, parking lot rooftop gardens, and much more. The campus spreads across 30 acres, and visitors often are in total awe of the sheer size of the place. You can find everything you need at ROW, including all the basics you need to throw a good party, like plenty of parties and clean restrooms.
