Here's Why The Line LA is the Coolest Place to Eat at Right Now

By Amelia Hassani | July 24, 2019 | Food & Drink Food & Drink Feature

Think of your coolest friend. The one who’s into art but isn’t annoying about it, who has season tickets to LA Opera but is down to karaoke, who understands that cutting-edge cuisine doesn’t have to be precious. They’re cool because cool is toeing the line between this and that and refusing to be labeled. The LINE LA gets it.


A hot spot for travelers and locals alike, it has a new stash of rad art and isn’t annoying about it (the Poketo team helps curate the hotel’s rotating art program, including its latest collab with CHIAOZZA); there’s karaoke in the ’80s-themed Houston Brothers speakeasy (you enter through a vending machine); and the recently revamped restaurant, Openaire, is teeming with fragrant plants and shareable, sustainable cuisine that’s to die for. At every turn, the line is blurred between haute and hip, and that’s exactly what makes The LINE LA so impossibly cool. 3515 Wilshire Blvd., 213-381-7411,
