Like most big cities, LA is made up of different neighborhoods. There is Hollywood, Koreatown, the Venice Canals, and even Santee Alley, but there is also a Piñata District! Yes, piñata as in… a piñata!

Piñata District in DTLA

Taking up two blocks at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Central Avenue in downtown LA, you can find store after store dedicated to piñatas!

There is every kind of piñata you can imagine! You can get piñatas in a fruit shape, of different animals, cartoon characters, and you can even find a politician or two. And on the off chance you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can even order a custom made piñata

They also sell candy to fill your newly purchased piñata. So once you get your ingredients, you can pummel to your heart’s content. Do something different for your next get-together or visit to Los Angeles, and head down to LA’s Piñata District to snag the perfect party accessory!

Strolling along Olympic walking by all the stores filled with Technicolor piñatas, there is a moment where it doesn’t feel like you are in Los Angeles anymore. If you are adventurous enough, I suggest trying a fresh pupusa or taco from local vendor’s cart for a truly authentic experience!

Located at East Olympic Avenue near South Central Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles, Piñata District is open every day but really is the liveliest on the weekends.
