The historic Dunbar Hotel once flourished as the rollicking hub of Los Angeles’s Central Avenue jazz scene. The property was revitalized as an affordable senior housing community by Thomas Safran and Associates in 2014. The 3,000-square-foot dining and entertainment venue reactivates the building’s famous music club with interior details that reflect the vibrant cultural legacy of this landmark, which hosted legends including Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong.
