LA Times

Gold Diggers is like if Sound City studios had a pub where you could drink with Stevie Nicks and then wander upstairs to a hotel to hear the band’s new demos and myriad couples’ spats down the hall.

Today, Gold Diggers’ slogan sums up the synergy the partners hope to cultivate: “Drink. Sleep. Record.” Artists can stay at the hotel for a few weeks, roll out of bed and into the studio and, if the mood takes them, even do a live show at the 150-capacity club.

It’s an unparalleled opportunity to establish a creative campus where music artists and recording industry professionals can cross paths, share ideas, have a drink, sleep it off, and ultimately bring new music into the world.


The Gold-Diggers project is an architectural labor of love, preserved with an eye towards its unique history, but also providing the amenities associated with a top-flight studio and luxury hotel.


The adage “If these walls could talk” resonates quite literally at Gold-Diggers, a multi-hyphenate new boutique hotel, bar, music venue, and recording studio that recently opened in East Hollywood.


Music is considered the "fabric of the space." Thus the hotel leaves a vinyl compilation for guests to keep on turned-down beds. The vinyl is a collaboration between Aquarium Drunkard and Vinyl Me, Please, and the tracks will change every season.
