Located in the Broadway Historic Theatre District, the Ace Hotel belongs to the new generation of design boutique hotels, This one is run by the group that’s opened properties in New York, Portland, Seattle and Palm Springs. The rooms are trendy but minimalist, with a retro feel, and most of them include a kitchenette and a record player with a great selection of vinyls. If you visit, you most stop by their amazing rooftop offering one of the best views of the city and killer drinks.

It’s the new bar to discover –and be seen at- in the Arts District. Modelled after the interior of an old-school train car, you can fully appreciate the retro vibe once you step inside. Think dark brown leather boots and brass light fixtures in a  dark and cozy ambiance.  While the design is interesting, you mostly go there to enjoy one ore many of their craft cocktails, which are twists on the classics, made with unusual ingredients.

This contemporary art museum, located downtown, is a most stop for every modern art lover. You go there to admire the work of Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman or even Andy Warhol, and you make sure to take a peek at at their vault, which stores The Broad’s collection of more than 2,000 paintings, photos and sculptures. Admission is totally free but we suggest you reserve your place in advance since the popularity of the museum is growing quickly.

Most of the regulars who frequent it would be mad to know that their secret is out. It is the place where the locals and members of the restoration industry go to hangout and drink great beers, and you’ll want to go there too, to have a day or evening of fun on their stunning patio.
