MORNING, NOON, AND NIGHT

Bringing together beloved cult names in food, a strong focus on L.A. market ingredients, Latin flavors, and sustainable seafood: Three-meal restaurant Onda marks an anticipated collaboration with chefs Jessica Koslow (Sqirl) and Gabriela Camara (Contramar, Cala). Visit the art-filled lobby lounge and library, anytime, for eclectic menu of bites to accompany small-batch mezcal and natural wines. On the rooftop, the circular bar and indoor-outdoor rooftop bistro pair ocean views with contemporary sustainable seafood by executive chef Kaleo Adams. Of course, in-room dining is always 72 and sunny.

Onda

EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO EAT

Proper’s signature restaurant marks a most unusual collaboration of global talent: Los Angeles’ Jessica Koslow of Sqirl cafe, L.A.; and Gabriela Camara of white-hot Contramar in Mexico and Cala, S.F. The seafaring Latin menu mixes Camara’s bold Mexican elements with Koslow’s market-driven bowls and toasts. Seasonal California ingredients also inspire fresh-baked pastries with a twist, Proper x Sqirl preserves, Surya Spa’s balancing teas and Sqirl coffee.

ARTISTRY BEHIND THE BAR

Ben Medansky’s elegant mural isn’t the only artistry behind the bar. From morning until the early hours, the lobby lounge serves a casual menu of eclectic snacks and bites to accompany farmer’s market cocktailing, explorations into tequila and mezcal, natural wines, teas, and boutique wines by the glass. Or, order off the Onda menu.

Rooftop Restaurant & Lounge

AN ELEVATED DEBUT

Overlooking the ocean and city, the elevated rooftop restaurant and bar led by executive chef Kaleo Adams serves sustainable California seafood alongside a refreshing list of boutique wines, seasonal cocktails and small-batch spirits.

What is Proper?

Proper began as a feeling, not as an idea. The feeling was something akin to empathy; an acute awareness that despite the current proliferation of “boutique” and “lifestyle” hotels and residences, there were precious few properties designed for and around today’s global creative nomad. Many in our milieu share the same daunting challenge: staying fresh and focused,
energized and inspired—all whilst bouncing between London and Hollywood and Austin and San Francisco and Portland and back again. For them, intuitive service is a given. Mere table stakes. What they need and seek beyond accommodation, even at its most luxurious, is inspiration. From the elevated and often surprising interiors imagined by Kelly Wearstler. From the sense of immersion in, and connection to, the vibrancy of the local culture. From the highly curated amenities. From the inspired collaborations with the city’s best and most innovative chefs and mixologists. From the music and the art. From every detail, every interaction, every moment. This is only Proper. And no one else.
