Highs & Lows

  • The attention to detail. Beautiful interiors by Sally Breer. Chapter 3, our favorite suite.

  • Despite its location on top of a bar, and right on Hollywood Blvd, the super-glazed windows mean there is little noise and you’ll definitely get a good night's sleep.

  • The rooftop. Complete with firepit and sun lounges (there is also a bar going in that will be ready for summer), this will be the perfect place to hang out during magic hour.

  • Exceptionally friendly concierge staff.

  • Close to all of our favorite neighborhood eating, drinking and shopping spots in Silverlake, Echo Park, and Highland Park.

  • Being on top of a bar might prove dangerous to your health.
