Hotel Ziggy is changing the conversation on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. In a neighborhood where glamour, luxury and celebrities are revered, there is another sound being heard.
Hotel Ziggy and its modern counter-culture spin where music, grit and creativity, along with more than a little rock and roll history come to life. Embracing differences and challenging conformity, the hotels unpretentiously informal attitude encourages both guests and locals to come and hang out with a friendly mantra of ‘just be who you are’. The last standing rebel on and infamous Hollywood block, Hotel Ziggy is a fusion of cocktail lounge, pizza joint and lobby where the hotel guest’s check-in is a friendly and inviting bar lined with hundreds of vinyl albums. A garage door with glass windows partially closes off one end of the lobby for private events and to serve as a live music ‘pop-up’ venue to support local musicians, inviting them to come and share their sound and offering them a space to rise above the noise. The commission was a complete repositioning of the hotel’s public spaces with the addition of 7 specialty suites and designed to celebrate the music legacy of the Sunset Strip.
