Only in L.A.? The Grove’s Knockout New Lobby Design

Who’s noticed the new residential-feeling lobby area in the parking garage at the Grove? It’s the kind of thing that makes you go “only in L.A….”—and it’s totally gorgeous.

The design-minded lobby revamp made its debut a couple of months ago and includes pretty stone flooring, opulent chandeliers, a leather ceiling, and seating groups that feel plucked from a five-star hotel lobby. In fact, the look comes from the Rockwell Group, also known as the folks behind such hotels as the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (another personal favorite since I covered its impossibly splashy opening), not to mention the wildly imaginative Crystals at CityCenter.

For further home-decor inspiration, there’s also a family area, with kids’ playroom including chalkboard, wall map, TV, and seating that somehow seems to achieve the unicorn-like combo of chic and durable.

Also part of the big-money upgrade to the lobby is the 1,000-square-foot lounge known as Stylehaüs at the Grove. The idea is that the shopping center’s new executive style director, Marina Monroe, offers personal shopping and stylist services from the super-luxe membership showroom. (BTW, services start at $100, so they’re actually kind of accessible for a one-off kick.) An in-store bar cart is the stuff of vintage dreams, and the mirrored dressing rooms are totally sleek.

Maybe you’ve also seen? Just adjacent is the Grove Shine, a handsome shoe-shine stand meant to evoke ’20s New York. Willie’s Shoe Shine vet Raul Ojeda trains all the employees for a totally high-end experience. You can leave shoes and they’ll repair them off-site for later pickup too.

Inspiring design, right? And all right under a sprawling parking structure. Only in L.A., you might say.

Not bad for a parking garage, right?
