    Fall Arts Preview 

    Walt Disney Concert Hall 

    Completed in 2003, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Designed by internationally renowned architect, Frank Gehry, the 293,000 square foot concert hall features a wavy, steel exterior designed to look like a ship with its sail at full mast. Gehry wanted to create the feeling of traveling along a ceremonial barge to music. 

    Audience members surround the orchestra platform for a uniquely interactive and intimate experience. For fine dining within the venue, we highly recommend Patina which offers seasonal tasting menus, decadent cheese carts and an award-winning wine list. Performances this fall include Dudamel & Mahler as well as Mozart & Beethoven. 

    Dolby Theater 

    Inspired by the elegance of a European opera house, with state-of-the-art technical capabilities, Dolby Theater has hosted a range of prestigious artists and events including the Academy Awards, American Ballet Theater and various Broadway productions. This classic Hollywood experience begins on Hollywood Boulevard, where a towering portal serves as the grand entrance to the theater. 

    A two-story Awards walk, featuring backlit glass plaques for each Best Picture Oscar winner, leads up a sweeping staircase to the main entrance. Upcoming events include Bob Dylan and the Los Angeles Ballet Presents the Nutcracker. Guided tours are also available and a great way to experience the renowned elegance and celebrity glamour. 

    Geffen Playhouse 

    Conveniently located within 10 minutes of the hotel, the Geffen Playhouse has been an integral part of Los Angeles theater since opening its doors in 1995. The Geffen contains two spaces, the Gil Cates Theater, seating 512, used for musicals and larger shows, and the more intimate Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater, used for experimental theater and musical performances. Over the past decade, the playhouse has been host to award-winning actors including Jason Alexander, Annette Bening, Laurence Fishburne and David Hyde Pierce. 

    Insiders Tip: The Geffen offers a free glass of local California wine before the performance to encourage you to arrive early and enjoy the lovely outdoor garden.

    Exploring The Coast

    Venice Beach Canals 

    Built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his “Venice of America” plan, the Venice Canal Historic District is famous for its man-made canals, which evoked the canals of Venice, Italy and likewise featured gondola rides. The canals originally covered the entire area between Abbot Kinney, Pacific Ave., and Venice Blvd. Visitors can walk along the canals in the area located within South Venice Blvd., Pacific, Ocean Ave. and Washington Blvd. The canals themselves go for about as long as you would like to walk. It is a nice place to take a leisurely stroll and take in the beautiful and serene area that seems almost out of place in the chaos of Venice Beach. 

    Santa Monica Pier 

    Today tourists and locals come to the Santa Monica Pier all year long to enjoy activities like fishing, ride the roller coaster, play carnival and video games, eat at great restaurants, and for the excellent people watching- by far the best place for it in Los Angeles. Each Friday night in fall, the Santa Monica Pier hosts an event called Front Porch Cinema, in which you can watch a free movie on a 40 foot inflatable screen under the stars that is preceded by DJ Sets. There are even old-timey lawn chairs for rent that melt away the stress of the week while you relax and enjoy the ocean breeze.
