Hotel Indigo Will Allow You To Explore DTLA’s Shady Past: Underground Tunnels

Los Angeles has added another new trendy hotel: Hotel Indigo. But this trendy spot will take you back to the gritty days of L.A. that you probably never knew existed.

Hotel Indigo are inviting guests to dip into a piece of DTLA’s underground history. The 350-room hotel has partnered with Cartwheel Art Tours to explore little-known nearby landmarks, such as the tunnels connecting dormant Prohibition-era (was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, drinking and sale of alcoholic beverages that remained in place from 1920 to 1933.) “It’s cool because people don’t normally have access to these old tunnels,” says Cartwheel Art Tours founder Cindy Schwarzstein, who requires that tour goers keep the entry points to the tunnels top secret.

Mobster Cohen (who was an American Gangster based in Los Angeles) was seen here drinking quite frequently at the Los Angeles underground speakeasies.
