Discovering Something Different in Los Angeles

 

Do you always go to the same places? Are you ready to try something new? If you are looking for an adventure around the corner, I have a few ideas for you in Los Angeles.

1. IPIC Movie Theater: I love the movies. I especially love action movies. But I would see any movie at IPIC. It is like being on a private jet with a full service team, this really is affordable luxury. The featured photo above is from the bar at Tanzy just off the lobby at IPIC Westwood. The mixologist can make you your favorite drink or find you something new to discover. Once in your seat, you can order food and drinks on their iPad which appears almost magically at any time during your movie. You are greeted with a pillow, blanket and popcorn; I love the star treatment! If you want to extend your IPIC Westwood movie going experience into an all night affair or holiday gift, stay nearby at the Intercontinental Los Angeles and enjoy their international breakfast buffet and a spa treatment!

2. LEVEL Up! Wondering where to put your guests? Want to test out a new neighborhood?  Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) now has short term furnished apartment rentals that are hotel-style accommodation.

After success in Canada, OMNI has brought their “urban oasis” with poolside cabanas, fitness trainers to Los Angeles.

Choose from one, two, and three bedroom apartments at LEVEL Furnished living with designer furnishings and 50″ flat screen TVs. The welcome party included a Soul Cycle group of riders, Foto Booth Fun, a great DJ and fantastic food.

3. NEUEHOUSE:  I was honored to be invited to a day of design exploring Los Angeles with Cadillac, Architectural Digest and Neuehouse. The art in front of Neuehouse on Sunset Boulevard by Dustin Yellin was incredible. I would love to see more of his work.

After breakfast at Neuehouse, we were transported by platinum Escalade to an estate above Sunset with incredible views of the city including downtown Los Angeles. The Landry Design Group created the plans for the house and led our tour. An exclusive Hancock Park Estate was next on our tour. Events were recently hosted here for Hilary Clinton and JLO. You can stay here too! Book a night with Elite Luxury Homes.

Driven by design AWARDOur tour of Neuehouse showed us the lastest in crafted collaboration. This co-working space will be open to the community and have speakers and lectures that you can attend. Thank you to whole team for my social media award.

Thank you! Lisa

  1. Have you visited the Downtown Arts District? A warehouse district that is becoming LA’s hottest, hip area for young professionals and creatives. Acclaimed restaurants like Bestia, coffee shops, socially conscious boutiques, art galleries and Angel City Brewery.
