This week has been packed…I find myself saying that every week quite honestly! It’s a delicate balance between wanting to go to everything but also needing to catch up and take time for myself. However, I knew when Hendricks invited me to the Hotel Figueroa party I had to go. As a student at FIDM a quite few years ago, I had been to the hotel many times before. So as you can imagine, I was excited to see what they had done with the place! Let’s take a look and see….Veranda restaurant hotel figueroa

The mural by Bella Gomez flanking the back side of the hotel is stunning! Not to mention they have the cutest double level cocktail bar, Ricks right across the pool from the Veranda restaurant.
