The Los Angeles outpost of The Line is located in the heart of Koreatown—an area abutting Downtown and Hollywood that lays claim to being Los Angeles’ “24-hour” neighborhood. The buzzy hotel makes a virtue of its location inside a mid-century tower block: its 384 rooms have bare concrete walls and beds that face the large windows. The in-house restaurant Openaire, located inside a large greenhouse next to the pool, serves shareable light plates from chef Josiah Citrin. Break Room 86, a speakeasy-style bar accessed via a retro vending machine, hosts live performances and karaoke evenings infused with nostalgia for Koreatown’s boom years in the 1980s.
