There are hidden gems throughout the uber-hip LINE Hotel, a modern, industrial property at Wilshire and Normandie. Josiah Citrin's greenhouse restaurant, Openaire is discreetly located on the roof next to the swimming pool. Shepard Fairey's 10-story Peace Tree mural covers an entire eastern wall, while Look Into My Eyes by D*Face is tucked beneath a ledge off Ardmore Avenue. Located by the lobby elevators, Poketo is a design-forward lifestyle store with innovative, artist-driven home goods, clothing, stationery, jewelry and accessories.
Hidden at the back of the hotel is Break Room 86 from L.A. nightlife impresarios, the Houston Brothers. Step through the secret entrance off Ardmore and it’s the 1980s all over again with private karaoke rooms and VHS cassette menus, vintage arcade games, a wall of old TVs, boom boxes, high school lockers, vending machines, and an old school phone booth. Another Houston Brothers creation, the Speek Suite features 1960s-70s décor including a king bed, mid-century fireplace, retro wallpaper, vinyl records and turntable. Their latest project is the Studio 54 / Great Gatsby mashup, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, located in the former POT space.
