Rudolph’s Bar & Tea
Located in the hotel’s lobby, Rudolph’s Bar & Tea offers a menu built around tea-infused cocktails & vintage spirits, alongside full tea service and light bites. The bar is a nod to Rudolph Rosenberg, once the owner and operator of the Commercial Exchange Building that now houses Freehand LA.CHECK OUT RUDOLPH'S BAR & TEA
International Flavors in the heart of DTLA
Freehand LA’s restaurant, The Exchange, pays homage to the 12 story vintage blade sign (the largest in LA) under which its entrance proudly sits.
The restaurant is led by the team behind Bar Lab, who brought us the beloved 27 Restaurant at Freehand Miami, and Angeleno chef Alex Chang, best known locally for his Paladar dinner series.
Similar to 27 Restaurant in Miami, where dishes explore the city’s many flavors through a Latin lens, the menu at The Exchange explores the multi-cultural flavors of urban LA through an Israeli lens.
This is the first restaurant in California from the design team Roman & Williams.CHECK OUT THE EXCHANGE
