A must for any Blade Runner fans, yes it's only the lobby of an office block but it's very cool that you can just wander in off the street and be transported to 2019. There's also a fantastic food court in a converted warehouse directly opposite.

It is worth walking through the lobby to view this beautiful historic building which has appeared in many movies. You must keep quiet since it is an active office building.

When in LA, take a walk through this building on your tour of LA as its architecture is classic, as seen in many a movie. The openness of its interior, the use of wrought iron and skylites is amazing to see, touch and feel. An LA landmark that will take you less than an hour if rushed.

Go ahead and take a quick peak inside the Bradbury next time you are in the area. Definitely not a destination attraction, but go get some lunch at Grand Central Market across the street and check this place out. This building has been in many movies and commercials over the years and is instantly recognizable once you step in. No... More

Lovely, well preserved Victorian interior, which Blade Runner fans will recognise. Free access to ground floor only, but good views of the full height of the interior. Recommended stop on tour of Downtown.

This is a very impressive old building. You will recognize it from many movies, including Blade Runner. It is a private office building. But they very graciously allow people on the ground floor for a look... and it is worth it! As you exit from the front door be sure to look across the street. You will see the Million... More

The building had great architecture and history. There were several movies shot in this historical building. It is located next to the Central Market which is a great place to grab lunch and then go and see the Bradbury.

Had to visit here as Blade Runner is a favourite film and many scenes are filmed here. Has been refurbished and tourists are permitted to the ground floor to view.

Blade Runner!!! Beautiful place. Make sure you check out Grand Central Market ((Tomas Mexican and Eggslut are the bomb))across the street and The World's Last Bookstore just 3 blocks away. Do all in one trip.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
