The Village Market

For a true taste of Downtown Culver City village living a visit to the Farmer’s Market on a Tuesday afternoon is a must. Just steps from the hotel, certified farmers and food vendors line the town’s Main Street with locally grown seasonal produce and artisanal offerings. You will likely spot our Chef handpicking fresh ingredients for his daily inspiration. Surrounding the market, you will also find unique culinary entrepreneurs such as Milla Chocolates boutique chocolaterie, Make-Outvegan fare and juicery,Super Domestic coffee roasters and Stanley’s Wet Goods wine shop.

Culture and The Arts

The Culver City Arts District supports a rich community of notable galleries such as Honor Fraser and Blum & Poe, as well as architecture firms and design shops. History buffs will enjoy the Wende Museum, a collection of Cold War artefacts, and the Museum of Jurassic Technology, dubbed “the strangest museum in America” for its quirky montage of random things. The Kirk Douglas Theatre provides Broadway-style performances while the Actors Gang, co-founded by actor Tim Robbins, showcases more experiential plays. Sony Pictures Studios offers a glimpse into Hollywood with its behind-the-scenes tours. The Museum of Natural History and the California Science Center
are a Metro ride away

Platform LA

With an industrial chic location, under the Culver City Metro overpass, Platform LA is an indoor/outdoor urban oasis showcasing curated fashion, edgy eateries, avant garde design, and the latest in wellness and lifestyle. Tom Dixon, Janessa Leoné, Poketo all call Platform home along with Aesop, and SoulCycle. Foodies flock to Roberta’s, the world-renowned pizzeria from Brooklyn, Margot, a Mediterranean restaurant known for its stunning rooftop views, and Van Leewuen Ice Cream for, well, dessert. Hop on a City bike or take a leisurely stroll to visit this trendsetting epicenter.

The Helms Bakery District

For food, furniture and a pedestrian friendly experience look no further than the Helms Bakery District. The Moderne Art Deco historical landmark first opened in 1931 as the family-owned and operated Helms Bakery, which supplied freshly baked bread for the 1932 Olympics and local residents for four decades. Today, the architecturally significant complex houses a selection of high-end design shops, like H.D. Buttercup, Danish Design Store, and Arcana Bookstore, along with award-winning restaurants, including Father’s Office, Lukshon and Pasta Sisters. Cognoscenti Coffee, Bar & Garden wine store and Coolhaus ice cream are also a hop and a skip away.

Hayden Tract

Once considered the “other side of the tracks,” the Hayden Tract has become an architectural masterpiece showcasing close to 30 industrial buildings designed by renown architect Eric Owen Moss, Visionaries Frederick and Laurie Samitaur Smith worked with Moss to create avant garde, thought provoking structures that incite social change. Each one uniquely named—Samitaur Tower, The Beehive and most recently The Wrapper —the structures are an architectural feat and fittingly house some of the world’s most forward thinking startups as as well as Chef Jordan Kahn’s Michelin starred restaurant Vespertine. While you’re there, be sure to also experience Khan’s more casual daytime eatery Destroyer. Coffee connoisseurs should look no further than Bar Nine Coffee, one of L.A most notable coffee roasters.

Nature + Wellness

Culver City has an abundance of green spaces and parks for fresh air activities. We challenge you to climb the Culver Stairs, all 282 of them, to the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, which offers expansive views of Los Angeles —the ultimate prize for a hike well-done. Parking can be a bit challenging so we recommend using the Metro bike share to get to and from the area. If you are looking for something more quaint, take a leisurely stroll through an artfully arranged Japanese garden with a lotus pond at the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area. For indoor exercise, there is a state-of-the-art Equinox gym nearby, as well as SoulCycle, Core Power Yoga and even a Massage Garage to decompress. If you prefer the ocean breeze, hop on the Metro which will take you directly to Santa Monica Beach and Pier.
