The Ruby Street is a spacious and modern church-turned-music venue located in Los Angeles, California. In 2016, the structure was transformed and opened to the public, hosting various gatherings and celebrations. The property has both indoor and outdoor space available to party planners. The aesthetic of these areas is defined largely by trendy decor, including a blend of contemporary and vintage furniture.
Each room in the 4,000-square-foot building boasts textured and vibrant accents. Lining the walls, are geometric wood-panel designs complemented by modern art and retro neon lights. An intricate stained glass window illuminates one of the many seating areas. Sofas and chairs throughout the venue have been upholstered with a variety of fabrics and vivid coloring. The decorated rooms allow visitors to admire interesting pieces of art while they enjoy the festivities. As a final touch, potted plants and vegetation add vital splashes of color. Mirroring the interior design in taste, the private yard features a minimalist layout with fashionable lawn furniture. A wood deck overlooking the patio and grass provides an area for guests to mingle. In the evening, this scene is lit up by hanging lights.
At The Ruby Street, an on-site event manager is available to help planners organize their occasion. Hosts also have the flexibility to choose their own bar and catering service. Chefs may use the outdoor kitchen located on the grounds, while beverages can be served in either the indoor or outdoor bar area. Those attending the venue also have the opportunity to appreciate a historically protected neighborhood that celebrates culture.
The Ruby Street started as a place for progressive-thinkers to gather and discuss civil rights. Zach and Lourdes Hernandez took on the passion project to continue the church's tradition of bringing people together. Now, the venue compliments the artistic tapestry of the neighborhood.
