We’re happy to say that The Theatre at Ace Hotel, formerly the historic United Artists Theatre, opens soon. We’ve been lovingly and meticulously restoring the place, and on Valentine’s Day we’ll be swinging the doors open with a performance of arguably the greatest break-up album of all time: Spiritualized’s Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space.
It’s a landmark moment for all involved. The group revisits the iconic album in all of its gospel splendor with a 30-piece orchestra and choir, performing the show for the first time since 2010’s now-legendary revival at Radio City Music Hall — and for the first time ever on the West Coast. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to welcome the world to our new home. 
The Theatre opens in the historic Broadway Theatre District next door to Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, opening January 6 with a handful of rooms available to book now.
Pre-sale tickets for Spiritualized will be available to Ace’s A-List subscribers this Wednesday, December 18, with sales to the public beginning on Thursday. More information and tickets can be found at acehotel.com/theatre.

To inspire a good Valentine’s weekend for everyone, a shot from Ace Hotel Portland room 215, found on the interwebs. We’re assuming this photographer wants to stay anonymous, but if not, by all means, step forward, young stud.
Update: the stud has stepped forward, and her name is Miranda Lehman.

A Valentine’s Day without lingerie is like a fish without a bicycle, so we asked Araks to help get you into the spirit. The result is this subtly spartan little number that celebrates your beauty in its natural state of being, made exclusively for Valentine’s Day at Ace Hotel New York. We love her grounded sensibility and nuanced sense of style. The Ace x Araks Teddy is made in New York of sheer, fog-hued cotton crepe, with slate tulle trim, adjustable straps, ruching detail in the front and lower back, and custom Ace x Araks label. This is what we like to wear when we’re smoking a cigarette (don’t try it, bad for you), absorbing the moonglow through an open window, Lou Reed on the record player… opening a letter… lip syncing the lyrics to “Venus in Furs.”
You can pick it up at Ace Hotel New York, at Araks Online, or on our shop — pairs nicely with an Ace x Uslu Airlines manicure, a good cup of coffee and an overhead view of a rain-slicked street. We’re offering a friendly break on all items on our shop through Valentine’s Day with code LOVESHWAG, so take your pick. And, yes, we were being ironic about the fish on a bicycle thing — thanks Gloria!

Jason Kinney's photobooth from LOVE IS ALL, Ace Hotel Portland’s 4th birthday and Valentine’s party.


We’re screening our favorite movie of all time by the pool Friday night at Ace Hotel Palm Springs in honor of Valentine’s Day and rebellious romantics everywhere. You can make it a weekend, too, if you’re feeling especially adoring.


We had a retro Valentine’s dance at Ace Hotel & Swim Club on February 13th at Ace Hotel Palm Springs. Doo Wop in the Desert was a collaboration with The Coachella Valley Art Scene, a local hub for art, music, and events in the valley. They also provide hair and fashion advice to retro style enthusiasts. Over 250 people attended in their finest vintage to dance, take photos in the customized photobooth, and eat frosted cupcakes from The Kid’s Business. DJ Alf Alpha kept everyone on their feet between two live sets by Evaro, a local band from Joshua Tree, with separate 50s and 70s themed outfits for each set. They were amazing and we’ll definitely be bringing them back to Ace. See our original invitation, and look at more shots from the party.

And if you had your photo taken at the party, email it to us. We might put it up on our blog.
