Bradbury Building, Los Angeles
(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Los Angeles travel itinerary maker makes visiting Bradbury Building and other Los Angeles attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This is an architectural wonder in downtown. The interior interior lobby area has been seen in many Hollywood movies and photo shoots. 
  • The outside of this building in Downtown is quite unremarkable but inside it's astonishing. It's just an office building but so pleasant with lots of natural light and beautiful iron staircases and ga...  more »
  • Right in the middle of Downtown, this building is an icon because of movies that used it as a location. Well preserved architecture and ancient, worth a visit-it and admire this historic building

  • Gorgeous classic architecture, great atmosphere. You may have to wait a while to get the shot you want, but it's worth it. I wish there was access to the top floors.
  • This building features truely awe inspiring architecture. The high walls of the interior give a feeling of being decompressed. The skylight giving a warm glow freshness. One of my favorite places in LA
  • This historic building doesn't catch much attention from the outside, but the interior is really worth seeing. It has iron cast ornamental balconies. Several TV shows and movies were shot here, such as "Blade Runner".
  • One of the great interior architectural experiences in the world. The light, the ironwork, the elevators, the cathedral-like sanctity of the place are incredibly special. A true downtown LA highlight. If you visit DTLA and don't visit, you've really missed out.
  • Another one of Los Angeles' gems. The architecture of this place is what has made it iconic. If you've an interest in that then this is a must see. If you want to see the actual building that so many great films were filmed in then this is a must see. At least so as to be able to say you've seen it. The place is actually quite small and only the ground floor is open to the public. But, it's still worthwhile and you can't beat the price of admission - i.e. it's free. So, if you're in downtown Los Angeles - or DTLA as the "in" crowd calls it - then it's well worth the stopping by. Once there you can definitely feel the vibe left by Robert Culp, Harrison Ford and Jack Nicholson.
