Los Angeles, United States
Following a two-plus year renovation, the historic Hotel Figueroa has reopened downtown. The Moroccan-esque boutique hotel is replete with five food and drink options, including a poolside bar called Rick’s, and a hidden lobby bar called Bar Alta attached to its own private suite, all courtesy of the team behind New York’s Employees Only. And if you like your martini with a side of art, the lobby is filled with gorgeous contemporary works to feed the eyes.
