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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Los Angeles trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Pretty cool old building in an interesting architectural style. I want able to see anything other than the ground floor as the rest was closed off to visitors. Across the road from the central market so easy to just pop in and have a look while you're there.
This was by far my favorite building I visited while in LA. The architecture is absolutely stunning. It is easily located and not overcrowded. The staircases alone were so beautiful I could have stayed all day just to observe every inch of the place. I would definitely like to go back and spend more time here.
Also a very unique building. Built in the 1800s, it boasts highly detailed railings and architecture, plus a hand operated elevator. Even today, it is still actually a fully functional office building!
Very nice spot to see and take pictures of. History is awesome which makes it a very unique place. Remind me of the Titanic (the movie). Although people who are visiting cannot go all the way up the stairs the first floor already says how much this place is a piece of California.
Amazing architecture as seen Blade Runner. Birdcage elevator still works and is used everyday by the people who work in this building. Only first floor and landing open to the public.
