Royal Claytons, a tavern just a whiskey bottle's toss from the Los Angeles River, is home to all kinds of amenities not usually associated with the way-downtown fringes of the loft district, along with poured-concrete floors and high ceilings. Royal Claytons is one of those restaurants where it is always easier to flag down the DJ than an actual waitress, but in a way that resembles the artists'hangouts that popped up in Soho and Williamsburg long before all the lofts were snapped up by developers.
