Tommie Hollywood Expected For December Debut In Los Angeles

By: Steinberg Hart
Local design firm, Studio Collective, developed tommie Hollywood's casual, contemporary direction to abide by the notion of duality: cultural, temporal and natural. Spaces will be led with a midcentury modern touch, inspired by the Los Angeles case study homes of the late 1950s and 1960s collated from architectural titans. Exposed structural steel post columns, natural white oak, natural stone, blackened steel, and hand-made ceramics will accompany the time-worn furnishings to emphasize the tactile and celebrate the imperfect.
Upon arrival, an inviting sun-drenched lobby will welcome guests, accompanied by an expansive, steel-clad fireplace and enormous hand-carved wood relief artwork. A hyperlocal art program will bring Los Angeles' proud creative community inward, with works from Bradley Duncan, Bruce Rubenstein, Valerie Wilcox and Ellie Pritts. The interior lobby will beckon the pursuit of discovery and continue to leverage honest materials amidst communal workspaces with plush seating options. A ground-floor coffee bar will set the scene, which will also open to the exterior courtyard, offering cocktails into the afternoon and evening hours.
The lobby walls will naturally open in several locations, allowing the interior lobby to dematerialize seamlessly into the spacious courtyard lounge. The mid-century modern touches will be evident throughout with the use of resilient natural materials such as stone pavers, teak and cedar wood plank finishes and blackened steel hardware, that will patina naturally over time. Comfortable, eclectic furnishings will complete the lush garden setting and bring forth charming dining experiences to create a social oasis within the city.
Each room at tommie Hollywood will be designed with purpose, offering a balance of style and function. Floor-to-ceiling windows will let in a wash of natural light across each cozy space, while hardwood floors provide natural earth tones and a calming ambience. The beds will offer ultra-comfy mattresses, and expansive windows extend views of the city, or a dramatic vantage point of the famed Hollywood Hills. tommie Hollywood will also have seven one-bedroom 388-square-foot suites on the top floor. Each will feature a separate well-appointed living area, 12-foot ceilings, impressive city views, a sitting area, and one king bed.
Two exceptional food and beverage experiences will be offered at tommie Hollywood, created and managed by Ten Five Hospitality, will separately serve as buzzy destination points within Los Angeles. Revered Angeleno native chef, Wes Avila of Guerrilla Tacos, will helm KA'TEEN, the property's signature restaurant. Spanning over 5,000 square feet of outdoor dining space and inspired by the Mayan city of Tulum, KA'TEEN will pay homage to Yucatan Peninsula's rich culinary history and will serve as a lush refuge. Whether it be for creative cocktails, decadent dinners, or a vibrant late-night social scene, KA'TEEN will serve as a venue for joyful gatherings of all types.
The property will also feature a striking rooftop bar, Desert Five Spot, named after the extraordinary and vibrant flower found in the Mojave Desert. Cactus and Yucca will surround the venue, with hues of yellow and pink, capturing an aesthetic that reflects 1970s vintage Palm Springs with the eccentric charm of Pioneertown. This open-air rooftop lounge offers 360-degree views of Los Angeles and will be an inclusive community-driven space for the creative set who wish to linger and socialize. A curated calendar of live music performances and original evening programming from an in-house honkytonk band will ensure that whether it's sunset hour or a lively late-night affair, Desert Five Spot is a welcome addition to Hollywood's social scene.
Located adjacent to the new Thompson Hollywood as well as iconic city landmarks including the Sunset Strip, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Runyon Canyon, Griffith Observatory and the Capitol Records Building, tommie Hollywood sits at the very nexus of the city's bustling technology and entertainment industries.
The property will also feature Hyatt's first digital check-in experience, allowing guests to conveniently use their phone to create a room key at the designated key station in the lobby and seamlessly access their room.
