Bradbury Building, Los Angeles

4.5
#14 of 60 in Sightseeing in Los Angeles
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Head downtown to see Bradbury Building and star in your own film noir. Originally designed by Sumner Hunt, Bradbury Building has been standing tall since 1893 when a millionaire businessman Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned it from George Wyman. Added to the list of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission, the building played a starring role in many music videos of artists like Janet Jackson and Genesis, as well as various films. Take a stroll through the structure to admire the Romanesque style that rules the decor--including an interior central court--or ride the open-cage elevators for a unique experience.

  • Such a beautiful and retro looking building. The inside of the Bradbury Building has been used in a few movies and TV shows, such as Blade Runner and The Artist. As this building has working offices i...  more »

  • It's a beautiful building but a very short visit (10 minutes tops) as you're only allowed to walk through the lobby. It would be nice to be able to see inside the elevator or climb the stairs to get a different angle of the interior.
  • This building is a architectural masterpiece. All you need is a quick visit; most areas are not accessible unless you work there, or book / request permission for a photoshoot. However, the main lobby can be explored. It is right across from the Grand Central Market, so a must visit. After Bladerunner was filmed this building has been restored to it's former glory. A must see for film buffs and architecture enthusiasts alike.
  • Just across from Grand Central Market, so pop in if you have a couple minutes, you won't be disappointed! Beautiful woodwork and Old LA architecture
  • Gorgeous building with insanely interesting architecture. Worth a quick stop for any Blade Runner fan :) This building is still in use, so you can only go in to the first floor, but that's all you need to appreciate the awesomeness and snag a few pictures.
  • Fantastic architecture preserved for everyone. It's free and a must see.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
