The Line LA
In the center of LA’s food-forward Koreatown neighborhood, this hotel was the original hotspot that put the area on the map for trend-hungry travelers in the mid-2000s. Staying true to the local scene, its dazzling, millennial-pleasing restaurant, Openaire, serves koji broth, jidori chicken and kimchi-fried rice in cool, glassy surrounds strung with hanging baskets and garland lights. Downstairs, a kitsch-retro bar, Break Room 86, has karaoke suites, and the in-room minibars even have cult Korean snacks. With a decadent, palm-fringed pool to lounge by and a killer cocktail bar, this base has all the ingredients for a foodie break in LA – along with artsy, pared-back rooms with distressed concrete walls and upcycled furniture for sleeping off the food coma.
