Independent restaurants and bars are the heartbeat of Los Angeles. Even though we are one of the largest industries, the independent hospitality community has never had a unified voice.


While the IHC was formed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission is to be a permanent impactful coalition that advocates for the Los Angeles area hospitality industry with information, resources and legislative action.


While donations are encouraged, membership is currently free. Donations will be put towards funding necessary support staff for meaningful advocacy and member benefits.


Our voices are stronger, together. We invite you to join us today.


We are a coalition of greater Los Angeles hospitality workers whose purpose is to provide representation for our growing workforce and essential businesses, creating awareness of our role in the economic fabric of society.
