Modern by Moonlight Walking Tour

No Events matched your filter.

The best way to begin a Friday night in L.A.

By day, the glass and steel towers of the business district exude corporate power. Yet by night, glowing windows, evocative lighting, and reflective skins transform these Modern monoliths into a beautiful and mysterious landscape.

This special walking tour takes an evening stroll among the architecture, public art, and plazas of downtown's Bunker Hill area. It ends at the Bona Vista Lounge at the top of the futuristic Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites, for no-host cocktails, dining, and spectacular nighttime views (subject to availability).

The route includes steps and hills, and low light of twilight and evening will require more caution when walking.

Distance covered: About 1 mile total walking

Meeting location: Provided with reservation confirmation

Parking: Available in nearby lots for $10 or less for the evening

Metro: Tour starts within a few blocks of the 7th/Metro Center station, serving the Red, Purple, Blue, and Expo lines. For details, visit metro.net

Wells Fargo Center

A twist on the Corporate International "glass box" design, the towers, completed in 1983, have parallelogram-shaped bases with sharp angles soaring into the sky while trees, fountains, and rough-hewn granite give the atrium a park-like atmosphere.

Bunker Hill Steps

The ties between downtown L.A. and its Bunker Hill origins have been tenuous at best. The Bunker Hill Steps, built in 1989, aimed to remedy that.
