Shortly after the opening of a Hollywood location, Kevin Hart’s Hart House brand launched ‘Hart & The City’, an interactive scavenger hunt. The event took place across LA on June 10th & 11. The experience featured local stops in Hollywood, Westchester/Inglewood, and Monrovia (all neighborhoods with a Hart House location). Participants will enjoy block parties, live music, items from the Hart House menu, prizes, and free merchandise/products at each featured small business. The final winner has not been announced, with the Grand Prize being a  VIP experience with Kevin Hart.

Fans participated by picking up a wristband and flavor passport on Saturday, June 10th, or Sunday, June 11th. The hunt sent players to six businesses near three of the Hart House California locations. They received passport stamps from each business visited, stamps do not require any purchase from the businesses. The first 25 visitors were able to receive special benefits from each business for each day of the Hunt.

The event highlights minority-owned businesses that bring life to their communities through shared values and accessibility. These are not just other restaurants Hart is bringing attention to through this event. Near Hart House Monrovia, for example, is Unds and Simply Divine. Unds is a minority-owned sneaker and clothing store uniting 25+ small businesses and offering a carefully curated selection of apparel and footwear with a distinctive vintage aesthetic. The first 25 participants each day will receive Unds vintage tees. Simply Divine is a Black-owned barbershop, beauty shop, and barber school, providing free haircuts and other community resources. Their reward for the 25 participants is free hair store items or gift certificates.

Some of the other businesses also appeal to vegan tastes. Happy Ice LA, originally based in Philly, is a dairy-free Black-owned dessert shop. Sip and Sonder is an LA-based coffee shop that spotlights coffee products from communities of color from around the world. They work with Gasharu coffee farmers in Rwanda and a percentage of purchases go directly to the Gasharu women of those same farms. 

Hart House is quickly establishing itself in the LA community. Hart House’s Instagram page recently announced a new fourth location at USC, with the grand opening set for June 21st.
