Navigating traffic in Los Angeles is no easy feat, and we are all too familiar with the countless hours of road rage spent in our cars just to move a couple miles when it really should take only a couple minutes. With next week’s DTLA Night Market in the heart of the City of Angels, situated across the street from the world-famous Staples Center (home to the L.A. Kings!) in Downtown L.A., 626 Night Market highly encourages all DTLA Night Market attendees to plan ahead, especially if you are getting there during rush hour on Friday.

DTLA Night Market is an outdoor food, crafts, merchandise, arts, and music festival set against the scenic backdrop of the city’s iconic skyline. Drawing inspiration from the night bazaars of Asia, DTLA Night Market fuses the Los Angeles and Southern California subcultures into an epic weekend event uniting local communities with over 200 small businesses, entrepreneurs, and artists. Luckily, the location offers some of the best possible transportation options, a rare instance when public transportation actually works in L.A.!
