The LINE brand was first introduced in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles hotel collaborated with re-imagined public spaces and guest rooms designed by Sean Knibb. The hotel is the first to draw inspiration from the distinct Korean culture of its surrounding neighborhood and includes two restaurants by Koreatown’s own Roy Choi (celebrated chef behind Kogi, Chego and A-Frame), nightlife by the Houston brothers (the duo responsible for prominent LA lounges such as La Descarga and Harvard & Stone), and noted art and design shop Poketo.
We are very excited about our second LINE location, The LINE DC, slated to open in 2017. It is a collective effort with local partners. The hotel will draw inspiration from the surrounding Adams Morgan neighborhood - an area long respected for its diversity, rich culture, and personality. In addition to a newly constructed building, the 110-year-old neoclassical church will be restored with the creation of dynamic public spaces serving both neighborhood residents and hotel guests alike. The LINE DC is manned by two chefs at the helm of four distinct food & beverage concepts. Each chef has been supported locally and celebrated nationally with nominations and awards from The James Beard Foundation for their contribution in the kitchen and behind the bar.
