Oh, you haven’t heard of Hello Stranger, you say?

Hello Stranger is the brainchild of Angela Romero, a third-generation Latina Angeleno with a heart as big as her ambition. What started out as music events, food, beverage and merch pop-ups, has evolved into a multi-branch organization that encompasses a production house, cultural collective, non-profit foundation, and a soon-to-be venue, restaurant & bar in the Little Tokyo District of Los Angeles, CA.
