The Line Hotel is a new property smack in the middle of Koreatown (Wilshire and Normandie). It's from the Sydell Group, whose previous successes include the Ace and the NoMad. And they've picked amazing collaborators, including restaurateur Roy Choi, of Kogi fame.
Loved the details in the rooms, including little objects on the shelves from the forthcoming Poketo collaboration. Floor-to-ceiling windows looked over into the Hollywood Hills. I didn't get to experience the pool or the restaurants (a hot pot restaurant called Pot, a poolside option, a cafe, and take-out—all by Roy Choi), which are all opening soon.
But the bar was open for business, and the creative house cocktails incorporating ingredients like kimchi and mushrooms as well as great versions of the standards (a white Russian topped with cream) were delicious.
