We’re beyond excited for our friends over at Ace Hotel opening the doors of their latest outpost in LA in the coming days. We also can hardly wait for the rebirth of the United Artists Theater, a noble building with a storied past. For the theater’s opening on Valentine’s Day, well-loved space rock band Spiritualized will perform its critically acclaimed album Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space in its entirety, accompanied by a full orchestra and choir. (For the record, when the Artists Theater originally opened in 1927, it debuted with My Best Girl starring Mary Pickford and Buddy Rogers.)
The hotel cafe and restaurant LA Chapter will serve up Stumptown coffee, if you need yet another reason to get there as soon as doors open to the public January 13.Photo by @ladyconnie. Photo by @lachapterca. Photo by @sambrano. Photo by @katlynhasinstagram.
Huge congratulations to our friends who won James Beard Awards last night! We’re so very happy for you.
