A Place to Gather

Bringing people together to celebrate love, art and LA

Our Story

The Ruby Street has alway been a progressive church in a historically protected artists’ neighborhood of Los Angeles that continues to bring people together. Musicians Zach Leigh and Lourdes Hernandez have continued the tradition of community by transforming Ruby into an arts and crafts center where the community can celebrate life.

OUR TEAM

Lourdes and Zach

Owners

After a chance meeting while playing a show at The Largo, musicians Zach and Lourdes set out to work on a creative project together. After completing the Ruby Street they wed there just a few months later and continue to oversee all of the creative direction of the space.
