Bradbury Building, Los Angeles

4.5
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.

  • Very small narrow building with beautiful ornate iron work. It is a ten minute view and picture event and that is it.  more »
  • The courtyard of the "Bradbury buildings", an office building, 1893 in the style of a brick built, is architecturally very interesting. Some Hollywood films were shot here, including "Blade Runner". On my website toeightycountries.com you will find tips for a tour in down town Los Angeles.

  • Nice gem right in downtown. The entry if free but you have access only to the first floor. It is worth it a visit if you are in the area.  more »

  • I had visited this building as a teen growing up in the 1970s, but went back to see if it was still as gorgeous as I remembered. The interior is still breath-taking, and I'm grateful to the owners for bringing it back to the beauty it was. It's worth a few minutes to stop in and ogle.
  • This place is awesome! I love the architecture here. Feels like you step into a different world.
  • Is such an awesome historic place from the Victorian era I really enjoyed visit this place with a rich history .
  • Well worth stopping by since it's in the heart of DTLA and so close to other more prominent attractions.
  • Fantastic photo opportunity if you happen to be in the area. Directly across from Grand Central Market. You won't spend a lot of time here, there isn't much to explore, but great to swing by before grabbing some food at the market!
