The Reef-Magic Box is a historic venue in downtown Los Angeles formally known as 'The LA Mart' located at 1933 S Broadway DTLA 90007. The chic venue houses the top designers, exclusive gift showrooms and furnishings. You will enjoy our choice of venue, I know we do. There will be plenty of room to sit and relax between shopping, workshops while enjoying our hand picked food trucks.
The Best Part
1 mile from LA LIVE and The STAPLES CENTER
Easy access from the Harbor and Santa Monica Freeways
Walking distance from the Blue Line and the Expo Line
There is plenty of metered street parking in the area. The parking lot at The Reef will be between $15-20. If you don't mind walking there is plenty street parking close by as well as several other parking lots.
My personal favorite is taking the Metro. The MTA trainstop is only a block away at the LATTC ( Los Angeles Trade Tech College)
Only $1.75 (One way)
Hotel DTLA LAX Hollywood
There are many ways to Xperience Los Angeles. The Hotels are endless and Air B&B are fabulous options.
If you want the downtown life try The Luxe, The Standard, The Los Angeles Hotel or The Ace. A tighter budget will take you to Hotel Figueroa, a great hang out bar & DJ on first floor.
If you don't mind the riding the train, Stay in Hollywood for the tourist in you. The Renaissance or the W Hotel are literally next to a MTA station. Experience a true Hollywood adventure.
Only a 12 minute ride to DTLA, The Doubletree located convenient to the 405Fwy on Sepulveda and Centinela has offered a double rooms for $189.00 if reserved before July 10th. Mention Nappywood
LAX offers beautiful hotels with all the ammenities, best if you have your own transportation or don't mind taking Uber or other options. You could take a hotel shuttle to the MTA stop nearest the airport. You will have to transfer a couple of times, great for the adventure type.
