Had to stop at one of my favorite little cafes in LA, Urth Caffe. Their food tastes so fresh, healthy, and flavorful. I always get their Green Tea Boba Blended drink. So hard to find anywhere else!

Second time at this place and I already feel like I’m a regular. The Standard hotel in downtown LA is my new favorite after work spot! There are so many nooks and crannies in this place, it never gets boring. There are ping pong tables, pool tables, countless bars, water bed cabanas, plenty of seating areas, heating lamps, a rooftop pool, and of course the amazing views of downtown LA’s financial district. It’s about as close to that New York flavor as I can get in this city.
