NoMad Los Angeles opens 2018

Downtown Los Angeles is going through a resurgence and the arrival of the new NoMad Los Angeles is only further proof of its comeback. The flagship property, along with its stellar restaurant, has long been favored by New Yorkers which will make this second outpost particularly special for bicoastal travelers.

Opening late January, NoMad Los Angeles is taking over Giannini Place, a building originally built in the 1920s that served as the Bank of Italy’s headquarters. Aspects of its Neoclassical construction have been preserved and the hotel’s 241 rooms will pull inspiration from the carefully restored gold and blue Italianate lobby ceiling while still maintaining the Parisian flare we’ve come to know and love.

The food and beverage will be overseen by chef Daniel Humm (of acclaimed Eleven Madison Park) and restaurateur Will Guidara and will include an Italy-inspired café, but the rooftop, with its alfresco dining space, cocktail bar, and pool, will surely be an instant hit.
