Last month I was able to take a little break from the Colorado winter to escape to LA to attend the Superfine! Art Fair where I debuted 12 new paintings (more on this to come). Last time I visited LA I stayed at the NoMad Hotel Downtown and I had such a great experience I thought a second stay was a must.
NoMad LA is located inside the historic, Giannini Place which was built in the 1920s as the headquarters for The Bank of Italy. The rooms are even themed to match, drawing inspiration from its Italian roots. We stayed in the Lake Como suite our first time and I’ve been dreaming of going back to Italy ever since. Every detail of the hotel is simply breathtaking, even the coffee cups are beautiful.
At NoMad, art and culinary culture are at the heart of what they do. Chef Daniel Humm is inspired by local ingredients and the “vibrant culture and traditions of Los Angeles,” NoMad offers a variety of options for dining, drinking and socializing in their various bars, coffee shop, restaurants, and rooftop bar. The foodie in me was rejoicing.
Speaking of the rooftop, atop NoMad is a tranquil pool, bar, and lounge. It is a serene escape from the bustling city below. With healthy crudités options and custom cocktails in the cabana, why fight the traffic to make your way outside of downtown? This is especially helpful for some quick R&R during a work trip. So next time you’re headed out west, I highly suggest you book a stay at the NoMad.
