Friday night I had an invite to the opening of J restaurant|lounge in downtown L.A. The newest hip spot near the Staples Center and hopefully part of the revival of downtown.
It was awesome.
Two floors, DJ’s, a restaurant downstairs, and a bar/lounge/dance floor/smoking lounge upstairs… and bewilderingly small bathrooms.
Speaking of bewildering, there was this acrobatic act at the beginning of the night between two gymnasts that were obviously banging each other. It was, admittedly, fairly impressive in an athletic sense, but, I’m not sure how it related to the place at all. Plus, because of how strenuous the routine was, the guy only lasted about 10 minutes before I’m sure he was worn out. There was no repeat performance and there were no similar acts that progressed through the night. It was like riding on a crowded bus, calmly watching someone faint, and then continuing on to the next stop.
