About First and Hope

First & Hope is a business that runs both a restaurant and bar. Located within the Bunker Hill neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles at the First & Hope street corner, it is next to the Los Angeles Music Center, the Ahmanson Theater, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and Mark Taper Forum.

Its hand-crafted cocktails and the American Bistro menu are a favorite of many of the theatre visitors and loft dwellers.  Our popular American Classics menu and ‘Specials’ served on blue plates encompass shrimp & grits, apple sauce, pork chops, etc. We have something for everyone who walks into our restaurant.

We’re not open for business on Mondays and serve lunch only Saturdays and Sundays. Every Tuesday through Thursday we serve dinner from 5pm to 10pm. On Fridays and Saturdays we extend our business hour to 11pm. Dinner is served on Sundays from 4.30pm to 9pm. Our Social Soiree begins every day at 5 pm. However, it’s only available at our bar side seating and main bar.

Our Bar menu is served on Tuesdays through Fridays from 5pm till we close business and from 2pm every Saturday and Sunday.
