Per L’Ora

Hotel Per La and Per L’Ora

Hotel Per La opened in downtown Los Angeles on Sep. 21, 2022, in the former Bank of Italy headquarters.

Built in 1922, the 12-story structure retains ornate features of its original self. Guests will marvel at the marble and plaster façade and the ground floor’s golden-coffered ceiling.

Also nestled within this posh setting is Per L’Ora restaurant.

“Starters include savories on toast, like Spanish mackerel with spicy tomato; chorizo and manchego; and avocado with chile oil and chapulines (the Mexican delicacy grasshopper),” chirps Eater Los Angeles. “From there, Per L’Ora’s primo section continues with a tuna carpaccio, crab cakes, lobster tagliatelle, and bucatini with Spam, egg yolk, and nori.

“Generously-sized main courses include a spatchcocked chicken with aji verde and potatoes, and a bone-in veal milanese with fermented chile vinaigrette.

Leaning into to specificity, LA Downtown News adds, “The culinary team at Per L’Ora is comprised of executive chef Courtney Van Dyke, a third-generation Angeleno who has spent her career leading acclaimed kitchens at the Montage Beverly Hills, Peninsula New York and Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire; director of bars Coleen Morton, who brings mixology and bar experience from neighboring DTLA bars such as the Redwood Bar and Grill, Spring Street Bar and El Dorado; director of wine Rick Arline, who gained experience across several five-star luxury hotels like the Montage Beverly Hills and Hotel Bel-Air; and pastry chef Sohrob Esmaili, previously from New York’s esteemed Jean Georges and Proper Hotel San Francisco.”


Historic sites like Grand Central Market and Angel’s Flight are within walking distance. So is the The Orpheum Theater.

Expect upscale … even glamorous experiences at the downtown Los Angeles hotel and restaurant. We have added both to our LA list.
