An exploration of community, creativity, and culture


Know your roots.


"A single tree does not make a forest; A single string can not make a symphony. But together, we create masterpieces painted by different shades of our colorful cultures."


Developed with some of the minds behind One Night Stand LA, DOPIUM.LA aims to preserve the original beauty of Chinatown, while showing its inspirational influence on an emerging community of creatives in Los Angeles. For one night, we will be taking over the historic Mandarin Plaza where we've invited local artists to help us create an experience that explores the intersection of creativity and collaboration. An experience to spark the thrill of pleasure and inspiration - Like Dopamine through the brain, and Opium through the vein.


DOPIUM.LA is a collaborative initiative between local creatives William Hu, Richard Tranley, Aldo Lihiang (of Coffee Hall & Mooon)& Haily Zaki (of Secret Agent).
