YOUR GOOD GUY TO KNOW
Brian DeLowe, Hospitality Wizard

Whether you’re looking to hang your hat in the City of Angels for just a few nights or, you know, permanently, Brian’s outfit Proper Hospitality has got you covered. For the short term: the company’s hotel arm, boasting gorgeous Avalon properties in both Beverly Hills and Palm Springs, with Proper Hotels coming in Santa Monica and DTLA in 2018. For the long-term: the newly opened Proper Residences in Hollywood’s Columbia Square — luxury abodes boasting top-shelf finishes and where-the-hell-did-you-find-that interior design, plus the full suite of amenities, including a massive rooftop patio with Instagram-worthy views of the Hollywood Hills.

As for that espadrille: we’re talking half slipper, half shoe, all summertime ease. More relaxed than a loafer, more personality than a boat shoe or driver, and has the added distinction of being able to both elevate shorts and dress down a suit. It’s like the Riviera on your feet.

FAVORITE OUTDOOR PLACE IN THE CITY?


During the week, I spend a bunch of time outside by the pool at our Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. It's an incredible spot to work from ... the outdoor cabana set up with fast wifi and all-day dining is hard to beat.

I'M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I SHOULD TAKE MY DATE TO...


My wife, Jessie, and I love to go to Old Place for dinner. It’s the perfect spot to venture after a summer day at Point Dume. Drive 20 minutes into the canyon and when you arrive, it’s like you've been transported to an Old Western town. The ambience is cozy, rustic and woodsy. The bowl of clams and bone-in fillet are the among the best in the city, especially after a bottle of wine next door at Cornell Winery.

GOOD PLACE TO GET A SWEAT ON?


I've been practicing yoga at the YogaWorks on Main Street in Santa Monica for years. All the instructors are incredible, but gotta give a shout out to Calvin Korzine, who never fails to deliver the best workout combined with an amazing playlist.
