Downtown LA - LOVE!

60 days until launch Today I had the pleasure of cruising around the Fashion District of Downtown LA meeting with fabric vendors and factories.  In between I got to enjoy some really cool hip spots (highlights pictured below).  I have to admit, I was actually shocked at how cool this neighborhood has become!  I am ageing myself, but I used to travel out here for work a decade ago - and hip certainly would not have been a word I use to describe the vibe then. Now there are so many cool restaurants and bars, all sorts of boutiques and coffee shops - it is definitely HIP - they even have a subway system that people use! I love the mix of the new and the old - and all the different architecture artfully co-mingled together. Ace Hotel in Downtown LA, originally built as the United Artists Building and later known as the Texaco Building, great place to do a working lunch. When in Rome...I had the kale salad.  It was very good.

Bottega Louie Restaurant and Gourmet Market & Patisserie - an absolutely stunning spot in the Brockman Building (a 12-story Classical and Romanesque Revival building located in Downtown).  I want to live in this place.
