Beautiful Historical Building
Fais Do-Do is a gumbo of eclectic music and diverse people coming together to build a stronger community by offering exposure to new cultures, foods, sounds, and philosophies.Originally a branch office of the First Citizens Savings Bank and Trust, the architecturally historic landmark that now houses Fais Do Do was constructed in 1930 at the height of the Art Deco period in Los Angeles. As Los Angeles spread west, eastern industrialists, silent filmmakers, and other early hipsters took over the tiny Mid-City area. Later in the 60's, the bank was converted into a neighborhood bar and underground club frequented by such legendary musicians as Sam Cooke, Billy Preston, and John Coltrane. The rich history of the building is preserved in it's current state as restaurant, bar, and music venue!
