Built in 1893, the Bradbury Building is Los Angele's oldest office building. The exterior is not particularly interesting but step inside and see the spectacular atrium which is dominated by a soaring skylight and beautifully designed matching stairways and railings. It's has a very unique...More

There is not much about downtown LA I like but thus is one of the more interesting buildings. Its a fascinating work of architecture, quite unique once you look at the interior

The exterior of building is very plain but the interior is beautiful. The detail of the iron work is fantastic but you are limited to move around as this is a working building. Entrance is free and if you are interested in history and architecture...More

This is definitely worth popping into if you're already walking around in the neighborhood. You can get some really great photos depending on the light. But you can only stand in the lobby and halfway up the stairs, so you'll maybe spend 5-10 minutes in...More

Not much time needed to check out the lobby ( you can't go up past the second floor landing) but well worth a visit

Amazing architecture that has been used in several movies. Even if you are not a movie fan you will appreciate the amazing design.

Beautiful building and very nice architecture, but you won't need more than 10 min. I'm not sure I will go out of my way to see it unless you are in downtown LA for some other attractions. Pro: It's Free.... Con: Need to find a...More

This place was almost demolished, but luckily it didn't. Many films were made here. The elevators are fascinating, as well as the balconies. It is well worth it to visit this building.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

No, the entrance that we went in was right off Broadway and was free. Nearby is the Central Market which is also a must see. The Biltmore hotel with beautiful lobby is also about 4 blocks away. We took a Metro bus to the... More
