Inside the Spring Arcade building is DTLA’s very own authentic French wine bar, Garçons de Cafe. The favorite for those mature locals looking to escape the craziness of the historic core.

We stopped by for their daily Happy Hour, enjoyed ourselves some cheese and meat plates, all the while getting to know all about our favorite wine bar. Cheers!
