NOMAD LOS ANGELES
History & Story
Located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street in Downtown L.A., NoMad Los Angeles takes residence in a historic landmark, Giannini Place. Formerly known as the original Bank of Italy, NoMad Los Angeles features 241 rooms, a casually elegant restaurant and bar, a library, an all-day Italian inspired café, a formal dining room, and a rooftop pool that offers sweeping views of the city and the Downtown Los Angeles skyline. Award-winning Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara of New York’s Eleven Madison Park, which currently tops The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, provide all food and beverage, offering a refined, yet approachable menu complemented by a distinguished wine and cocktail list. It is the culinary duo’s first project outside of New York and they are thrilled to bring their hospitality to Los Angeles.
Designed by French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, each of the 241 rooms at NoMad Los Angeles look to Italy for inspiration – a nod to the building’s storied beginning. NoMad Los Angeles is the designer’s first project in the city. The guest rooms’ color palette is drawn from the property’s fully restored gold and blue Italianate ceiling located in the lobby. Each room is appointed with custom designed furnishings and original artwork from Paris / New York-based design studio be-poles with many also featuring freestanding pedestal bathtubs. Much of the building’s Neoclassical style, such as its Doric columns, ornate golden ceiling, and marble floors, have been preserved and incorporated into the new design. The original vault that once housed 12,000 safety deposit boxes and 50-ton door have been kept intact alongside the coffered ceiling and square pilaster columns topped with Corinthian Capitals located in the lobby and restaurant areas.
In the midst of a cultural renaissance, Downtown Los Angeles provides some of the city’s most interesting dining, shopping and entertainment, all within walking distance from NoMad Los Angeles. It is conveniently situated providing easy access to Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Adaptive use of historical landmark building, NoMad Los Angeles opened on January 21st 2018. The entire building has been renovated, restored and converted to a hotel. Its a historical building with gorgeous original detailing and a brand new hotel.
Interior design by Jacques Garcia :
French interior designer Jacques Garcia possesses a truly unique style, mixing 17th- and 18thcentury references with modern influences to create a timeless interpretation of French elegance. From being an interior decorator for clients such as the Sultan of Brunei, to his high-profile recreation of an 18th-century tea house for Ladurée on the Champs Elysées; and the design of the always relevant Hôtel Costes, his design is timeless. Jacques Garcia has renovated private and public spaces around the world, including many hotels in Paris. For NoMad Los Angeles, he draws classic inspiration from the iconic Italianate building while looking to the California coast for contemporary style.
