Downtown Los Angeles Spotlight: Ace Hotel, The Broad, and Clifton’s Cafeteria

Last week, our team explored bustling downtown Los Angeles, a region on the rise for corporate groups. Here are a few highlights from their site visit:

Ace Hotel

Ace Hotel is located in the historic United Artists building , built in 1927. Opened in 2014, the property features modern rooms, a rooftop pool, trendy event space, and a beautifully restored theatre. Think Great Gatsby meets Urban Outfitters.

The Broad

New to the downtown Los Angeles scene, The Broad is a contemporary art museum founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad. Located on Grand Ave, the Broad is home to an ever-growing collection of postwar and contemporary art. Private venue rental for corporate events is not an option at The Broad; however, the adjacent Otium restaurant has several private event spaces including a buyout option for up to 300 guests.

Clifton’s Cafeteria

Los Angeles Times put it best when they said “Clifton’s is not your normal cafeteria.”  After a 5-year, $10 million renovation, Clifton’s Cafeteria reopened in October 2015 (the original debuted in 1935). Featuring a fake redwood tree stretching five floors, a kingdom of taxidermy creatures, and plenty of entertaining surprises in its “cabinet of curiosities,” the venue provides an assortment of wonderfully weird conversation topics.
