location spotlight ~ majestic halls

the majestic halls in the heart of downtown la is one of the most awesome venues i've seen.  i love unique architechture and that's exactly what drew my clients to this venue.  it used to be the old bank of america and the building was the bank's headquarters from 1930-1972.  you can see all of the old structures of the bank, from its wide spanning halls with large columns to the old vaults, where you can be seated alongside during your reception.

during our site visit, we received a grand tour of the location including an awesome space in the basement.  this is where the old safety deposit boxes were housed all within another giant vault:

these large glass cases were for the safe deposit owners to "display" their heirlooms and prized possessions. 
faaaancy, huh?

this vault is now decked out with plush furniture, ready to receive guests for a club lounge vibe.  

the ceiling's ornate antique wood decor and quatrefoil detailed doors:

and the penny bar:

it's such an awesome space and i can't wait to see it lit up and decorated in december's festivities!
