* The Ace Hotel – Downtown LA *

City break destination Lust List starts with this gem in Downtown LA.

Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened early 2014 in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA.

Gotta Go there:

Arrive on a Thursday, the right Thursday, as once a month (second Thursday to be exact) there is a Downtown Art Walk. Where you can see and purchase art from uniquely curated exhibitions featuring local and international artists.


Eat? Drink?

Try the hotels very own spots or venture out onto the streets, you’ve got options. LA Chapter has a pretty extensive menu, Sea Urchin Chitarra anyone?

But there’s always a need to get out and explore, so click here for some excellent spots to try.



Friday: Hang out at the Hotels Rooftop bar – Pool Parties, Cocktails, occasional Yoga and Pop up Shop. What else do you need?


Glad you asked actually, cause there is an architecturally breathtaking Theatre from the 1920s that make up the foundations of the hotel.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it – United Artists.  From Big name bands to Screenings, plan accordingly.


Then spend it up in the Fashion District.  Filled with sample sales and 30-70% off retail prices.  Not bad.


Now that’s a city break.
