Deep-hued velvet, blue & gold coffered ceilings (pictured above), intricately carved main doors, and a surprise vault. These are a few things team PARTNER was lucky enough to spot during a sneak peek of the NoMad Hotel before they opened their doors to the public on January 21st in Downtown Los Angeles. Housed in the former Bank of Italy, this new space stays true to the NoMad luxury we all know and love. So what did we enjoy most?
The details! As Chef Daniel Humm told the LA Times, "there are many layers, and if you only come here once, you cannot experience it all at one time." From the stone statue overlooking the soon-to-be-opened pool (with 360-degree views of DTLA) to the coffee bar that converts to an alcohol bar when the sun sets (thanks to retractable mirrors), we certainly didn't experience all this new space has to offer. Looks like we'll need another trip! Did we mention the meeting space with the deep red custom chandelier (pictured above)? Talk about an intimate and inspiring space with hidden treasures. If you need more tech the mirrored room dividers open to reveal a flat-screen TV.
What do most old bank buildings have in common? Heavy-duty vaults. Honoring the buildings rich history, guests pass through the vault door on the way to the restrooms (pictured above). If walking through the massive vault door weren't enough to remind you of the history of this building the old safety deposit boxes (pictured below) in the restroom foyer certainly will.
Our visit to the NoMad's 1920's-era building added an extra element of Italian influence to our trip to California (promise, we didn't fly 7 hours to only see the NoMad!). The textures, colors, and food have us so excited to plan events in the many spaces offered (they have 6 different kitchens!). We know what you are thinking. "You are in New York City!" Don't worry, #teamPARTNER likes to travel! 🛩
Stop and enjoy the details around you!
