A Great Escape to LOS ANGELES
Los Angeles is a place rich with vibrant cultures, booming nightlife, and world class food options that will satisfy any craving. People from all over the world flock here to see the sights, find opportunities and have an experience of a lifetime. We, in the Santa Clarita Valley are quite lucky because we are just close enough to experience the city if we wanted. élite magazine had the opportunity to explore Los Angeles, compiling a list of places that you must try on your next visit.
NOMAD Hotel Los Angeles
Located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street, The NoMad Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles continues in the spirit of the original NoMad in New York by taking residence in the historic building, Giannini Place. Originally built in the 1920s as the headquarters for The Bank of Italy, the building’s gold and blue Italianate lobby ceiling has been fully restored and serves as inspiration throughout. Honoring its rich history, The NoMad Downtown LA Hotel naturally balances the integrity and character of the Neoclassical landmark with a contemporary California design sensibility. As in New York, we have collaborated with Jacques Garcia on the design and Chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara on the restaurants, while adapting our approach to seamlessly blend into the vibrant tapestry of Downtown L.A.

This immersive art park is more than an art gallery, more than a music venue and more than a culture trip. If you want to take a step into something different that stimulates all the senses then try one of the many events or exhibitions hosted here.
