Urbano Pizza Bar
“Pizza is a lot like sex. When it’s good, it’s really good. When it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.” – Mel Brooks
The people that created LA’s Library Bar, Spring Street Bar, Los Feliz and Spitzer’s Corner in NYC are now putting their impeccable tastes in the pizza oven (wood-fired, of course). Acme Bar Group and Amalgamated Pubs Inc, William Shamlian and Michael Leko respectively, are known on both coasts for their deftly designed interiors, unique locations, and the superb quality of their menus.
Urbano is located on one of downtown LA’s most visible corners. Directly across from the illustrious Standard hotel, the venue reveals a perfect combination of rustic charm and urban sensibility. It’s like a bit of Williamsburg in the heart of LA’s resurgent city center. The branding is subtle, with the exception of the abstract-inspired pizza boxes, lending an understated tone to the otherwise zesty pizza fare.
