Part of our job (and trust me it's a fun part) is that we get to visit wedding and event venues all over Los Angeles and beyond to see if they might be a good fit for our clients. Sometimes they are venues that we know about but have never been in person and sometimes it's an old venue that got a new facelift. This time, Jessica, Kari and I headed downtown Los Angeles to check out the trendy and newly restored, Hotel Figueroa.
First we got a tour of the rooms and suites. We love checking these out because we can see where our couples will be getting ready and how the lighting and space will look for our photographers. Good news, every single room and suite looked photo-ready!
The event spaces
Next, we headed into the main area of the hotel to check out their cool event spaces. With over 10,000 sq. feet of event space Hotel Figueroa can offer an intimate and outdoor gathering on the Terrazza (for up to 140 guests) or something more elaborate in the Gran Sala complete with Spanish Colonial Architecture right down to the limestone fireplace.
Even beyond events themselves Hotel Figueroa is welcoming to all its guests. With many lounges scattered across the property it’s a perfect place to relax and mingle with old friends and new. P.S their cocktails are INCREDIBLE.
The food + drinks
As beautiful as this place is the facility is only part of the story. On our tour we got treated to lunch and ordered delicious dishes from their in-house restaurant, Breva. We sat outside in their tropical-modern-moroccan patio overlooking the pool. This space is available to rent as well!
After lunch, we ended the tour in their separate beach bungalow! This is typically open as a restaurant and bar but clients can do a full buyout and even use this space as the wedding after-party. I think this was my favorite space, look how colorful the design is.
