The mystery location of yesterday's post is the Hotel Figueroa, in downtown Los Angeles near the LA Live complex. (M. Bouffant wins!)
Its hidden treasure is a courtyard bar, moody and romantic, with Moroccan-inspired decor.
A former YMCA, the Figueroa is a small and quirky hotel with - truth be told - mixed Yelp reviews of its unspectacular accommodations and service.
And, indeed, the service was non-existent at the hour I went in hoping for a cool mojito near the pool before catching the Expo Line back to the West side.
But I'll be back another time. It's just intriguing enough for a second try.
