213 Ventures, Inc.

The acclaimed Los Angeles-based hospitality group, helmed by celebrated innovator Cedd Moses, has both established and elevated craft cocktail culture through its diverse collection of over fifteen bar and restaurant venues. Under Moses’ deft touch, 213 Ventures has expanded beyond Los Angeles to key markets in California, Texas, and New York with more in the pipeline, bringing the group’s acclaimed drink program and service philosophy to each brand extension while still reflecting the unique style and culture of their respective cities. 213 was the first hospitality developer to stake a claim in Downtown Los Angeles’ historically significant buildings, transforming the neighborhood into a cultural destination and contributing to the bustling real estate renaissance that has reinvented modern LA living. Each bar, set in reclaimed architectural gems, showcases distinct and dedicated spirit programs led by some of the country’s luminary bartenders offering guests an authentic—and accessible—sense of place including Seven Grand Los Angeles & San Diego (@sevengrand); Cole’s French Dip & Red Car Bar (@colesfrenchdip); The Varnish (@thevarnishbar); Las Perlas (@lasperlasla); Golden Gopher & 8th Street Bottle Shop (@goldengopherla); Caña Rum Bar (@canarumbarla); Broadway Bar (@broadwaybarla); Tony’s Saloon (@tonyssaloon); and Casey’s Irish Pub (@caseysirishbar) as well as Penny Pound (@pennypoundice), an artisanal ice purveyor. Currently in a dynamic period of growth, 213 Ventures has recently expanded with the opening of Pellicola Pizzeria (@pellicoladtla), Cole’s French Dip LAX, Half Step (Austin, TX – @halfstepbar), and two projects in partnership with Proprietors LLC: Honeycut (Los Angeles – @honeycutla) and the forthcoming opening of 213 Venture’s first project in New York City, One-Fifty-One.
