Everywhere you look, there’s art hiding in plain sight: LA is home to more museums than anywhere else in the country, plus some 200 galleries and scores of public installations and murals. Thousands of artists have flocked to LA and found their own personal end of the rainbow. And just like them, you'll never want to leave. Maybe it’s the art, the food scene—or the electricity of Los Angeles itself.
Explore the thriving contemporary art scene of Los Angeles. Talk shop with emerging artists and dynamic collectors on intimate studio visits. Get rare access to collections rarely seen by the public, and insider access to the works of people like Justin John Green, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, John Houck, Leslie Shows, Chris Lux and Chris Engman, plus the expansive private collections of Andrew Teufel and Danny First.
Our LA is for anybody who loves culture, design—and especially art. Great for a long weekend to eat well, explore, and get an insider's look at LA's contemporary art scene.
LA is a year-round destination. Our favorite times to visit are March - May and September - October, when the weather is warm and sunny, but never too hot.
Slow down to enjoy time on the beach, sunrise yoga, or hiking the hills of Malibu. Or go deep into LA's world-class food scene. We can curate an LA experience to suit your interests.
Staying at a hotel in downtown LA almost always feels like stepping back in time. Rarer and more lovely is the opportunity to feel like you’re moving forward at the same time.
Our downtown LA hotel enjoyed a storied past life as the opulent local headquarters of the Bank of Italy. Painstaking restoration has kept that European heritage intact: the gold-wrapped coffee bar (by day) and aperitivo bar (by night) was modeled after a 300-year-old Venetian cafe. The library, with its cozy dark wood and stuffed peacocks and pheasants, is pure Old World. But head to the rooftop bar for poolside cocktails and shimmering views of the city below, and you’ll know you couldn’t be anywhere but downtown LA, right here, right now.
