A Clubhouse for Creatives: The Rose Hotel in Venice

September 15, 2014

Brooklyn-based British fashion photographer Glen Luchford first visited Venice Beach in 1993 to photograph Dennis Hopper and fell in love with the grittiness of the neighborhood (it reminded him of Brighton, England, his hometown, he says). With his newly opened Rose Hotel, located on Rose Avenue near Abbot Kinney, Luchford has created a place to stay when he’s in town with his crew: a low-key spot near the beach, nothing fancy. Working with his partner, Doug Bruce, he bought a down-at-the-heels property last spring and embarked on a whirlwind rehab, enlisting his friend Katerina Tana to help with the interiors. The team spent a total of $80,000 on the project (it was all they had to work with) and created a calming oasis with rooms starting at $155 a night.
