What's old is new again. Normally, we'd have nothing whatsoever to back up a ridiculous saying like that. But today, we have Breva, a new Basque brasserie from chef Casey Lane, now open at Downtown's gloriously restored Hotel Figueroa.
Not long ago, if you were visiting an American city and looking for a good time, the first thing you did was get the hell out of your hotel. Then the boutique hotel arrived.
Many of L.A.’s best chefs are making it a lot easier to enjoy their food. From quick-service sandwiches and pizza delivery to over-the-top brunches and festival appearances, here’s a look at what’s new:
The Los Angeles cocktail scene has been buzzing with several new bar openings (and bar programs changing hands) throughout the city. With spring now officially here, it’s the time to check out the spring forward cocktails at L.A.’s latest hotspots.
Hotel Figueroa, located across from the Staples Center, will reopen this spring following a $55 million refresh that restored the 1926 building to its former Spanish Colonial splendor.
Like so many landmarks around Southern California, Hotel Figueroa will mark its first century in less than a decade. It opened as "an exclusive women's hostelry by the YWCA" in 1926, and soon became a "social gathering place for female artists."
After a hiatus of more than two years, Downtown’s Hotel Figueroa reopens Monday. Desk staff confirmed that the hotel, shuttered for a remodel since November 2015, will welcome guests starting next week. (It was previously expected to open in the fall of 2016.)
It looks like Downtown’s Hotel Figueroa will be opening this weekend, just in time for the NBA All-Star Weekend festivities. After a protracted remodel that has taken longer than anticipated, the sudden arrival of the gorgeous Mediterranean property is certainly a surprise.
It's always worth celebrating National Women's History Month, which occurs every March. Given the tenor of the times and a certain five-letter hashtag that's been circulating on social media, it's an ideal time to visit places that celebrate women and women's issues.
Downtown’s hotel renaissance is in full swing, and the latest name to start booking rooms is none other than Hotel Figueroa.
Historic buildings. Sumptuous design. Clever cocktails. Chic scenes. And quiet, cozy interludes. These are what you can find in L.A.’s best new hotels.
It’s been quite the wait for the revamped Hotel Figueroa, which closed for renovations in November 2015 with a goal of reopening a year later. Various delays besieged the 1926 property, but on Monday, Feb. 19, guests will be checking in again.
The Times says to expect an opening this spring, though there’s no confirmed date as Zaric is also still currently working on a multi-functional bar experience at the remodeled Hotel Figueroa in Downtown Los Angeles, also slated for an arrival in the next several months.

2018 is already shaping up to be another incredible year for Los Angeles’s restaurant scene. Big-named players from across the globe (and right here at home) have been working furiously to bring their projects to life.
DTLA - When it comes to transformative projects, it will be hard for Downtown Los Angeles to top 2017. Additionally, the community welcomed its largest recreation space in L.A. State Historic Park, several new hotels and approximately a dozen housing developments.
ow that LA has officially been recognized as the most exciting dining city in the country, don’t expect things to slow down. This year promises huge openings from notable local chefs and restaurateurs as well as award winners from New York, San Francisco and everywhere in between.
DTLA - In 1923, with a young Downtown Los Angeles emerging as a hub of business and finance, Amadeo Giannini opened the Bank of Italy headquarters at the northwest corner of Seventh and Olive streets.
We’re calling it now: 2018 is going to be an especially great year for hotel openings. From historic renovations to off-the-grid glamping sites in some of the world’s most spectacular settings, travelers will be treated to incredible design, thoughtful collaborations, and memorable experiences.
DTLA - The new year brings a blank slate for the dining and drinking industry in the Central City. In the next 12 months some restaurants will close, others will find their footing, and many more will debut with wide-eyed optimism about the possibilities of Downtown Los Angeles.
Los Angeles has been developing at breakneck speed, with new properties and group offerings cropping up on a seemingly daily basis.
Originally opened in 1926 as a safe haven for women travelers, Hotel Figueroa in downtown Los Angeles pays homage to the city’s rich history. Following a two-year, $30 million renovation, the newly modernized Spanish Colonial-style resort is scheduled to open in late fall.
For much of its history, the Gin & Tonic hovered above the realm of recreation. Today, however, it’s not uncommon for a simple G&T to boast a laundry list of ingredients meant to elevate the simple highball.
LA’s restaurant scene is heating up this fall after a tremendous first half of the year that brought on three notable Italian restaurants and a slew of other compelling places like The Exchange, Rosaline, Vespertine, and Verlaine.
Hotel Figueroa (hotelfigueroa.com) will be restored to its 1920s Spanish Colonial splendor in June 2017. There are 268 rooms and suites, all designed with comfortable elegance and in-room technology in mind for today's modern traveler.
Trendy blocks. Delicious eats. Killer coffeehouses. Must-see shops. Splashy new bars. The revival of our once-idle city center kicked off more than a decade ago, and it’s only picking up the pace.
Los Angeles is abuzz with new luxury hotel openings. From the hills of Hollywood to the sands of Malibu, these are the hottest new places to stay in the City of Angels.
The waves of summer are surely here already, with a week of 80 degree weather and more sunshine on the way. That’s what makes the poolside drinking options at the upcoming Hotel Figueroa in Downtown so tantalizing.
