L.A. Chapter

October 13, 2014

If you grew up in LA like me, you can probably remember flipping through TV channels on Sundays and seeing a guy named Gene Scott holding a scotch and a cigar, with a dry erase board behind him, as he was teaching about Jesus in what is now the Ace Hotel. Before Gene, the building was owned by Texaco, and before that it was known as the tallest building in LA, sitting 13 stories high in 1927 (thank you Wikipedia!). Its best incarnation has to be in 2014 when it became the Ace Hotel.

Yes, there is a lot of history in this place, but the present gem is a new restaurant named L.A. Chapter that serves up an amazing brunch. Stumptown coffee and avo-toast, are just the beginning to having a great weekend morning in Downtown. The Spanish Gothic architecture blends well with the design and style of the restaurant. The bar in the mezzanine is a cool place where you’ll still find someone with a scotch in their hand, just like Gene!
