History & Background
Before skyscrapers and tunnels were built, Bunker Hill used to be a much more formidable “hill” than it is today and physically separated Downtown from the rest of the city. Today, the hill is scaled down, and the Victorian houses have been transplanted into a living museum farther north off the 110 freeway at Heritage Square Museum.
Nightlife & Entertainment
Head to Bunker Hill for top performing arts and fine dining. There’s Walt Disney Concert Hall, and across the street to the north is the L.A. Music Center with the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum, and Ahmanson Theater. Find upscale restaurants like Noe in the Omni Hotel, Patina at Disney Hall, or enjoy a steak and the patio view at Nick & Stefs at the Wells Fargo Building.
There are a number of established condo and apartment buildings such as Bunker Hill Towers, Promenade Plaza, Olive Street Apartments; however, there is a lot more on the horizon with the Grand Avenue Project getting traction with a proposed SLS hotel, retail stores, and 400-plus residential apartments.
