The Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

An homage to the iconic black bars found in the Founders’ Room and the Oval Bar at The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, The Music Center’s Black Bar Social invites Angelenos to a series of monthly free speakeasy-style social gatherings, held on Tuesdays, designed to spark imagination and start conversations about the future of Los Angeles. Guests will have the opportunity to engage in discussions in response to a provocation from a featured provocateur (an artist, culture maker or community partner) who will curate a creative experience that blend innovations in science, technology, emergent culture and social movements.

The Music Center’s Black Bar Social is a brainchild of The Music Center's Digital Innovation Initiative (DII), a program designed to catalyze and engage Angelenos, artists and culture makers to collaborate on a spectrum of physical to digital experiences. Launched in 2022, DII explores and creates digital and virtual reality experiences throughout Los Angeles that reflect the rapid changes in culture, technology and environment. The Music Center’s Black Bar Social offers a place to conceive big ideas and build relationships to bring those ideas to life for a better L.A. benefitting all Angelenos.
