“Beautiful hidden gem”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I went into this building while on a Downtown LA Art Scavenger Hunt. Who knew? It is breath taking. If only there was a reason (place to have coffee, lunch, do business) here to bring me back.

“Must See”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This building is so beautiful you just have to see it for yourself. Featured in the movies "Bladerunner" and recently in "The Artist". Don't pass it up, you won't be sorry.

“Beautiful space, location of many movies”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This building is nice enough on the outside, but walk inside and be amazed, especially when you remember it was built in 1893! Oh, good luck finding a legal parking place nearby. You may have to 'tag team' with friends. Or better still, leave the car at home and walk up and down Broadway.

“Old Style Craftsmanship”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The Bradbury Building dates to earlier times when building ornamentation was more important than today. Wrought iron decoration fills the building, including the light filled courtyard. The building is on Broadway with a parking structure behind it. Other landmarks, such as the Biddy Mason Park and Wall, are within a few steps. The building is beautiful.
