Proper Hospitality co-founders Brian De Lowe and Brad Korzen announced the opening of their new brand venture, Hotel June, on Los Angeles’ Westside. Inspired by the soul and spirit of California and named to reflect new beginnings and a year-round summer sensibility, the first Hotel June property opens its doors on June 22, marking a new chapter for Proper. De Lowe and Korzen created Hotel June as an approachable lifestyle hotel –– a stylish and uplifting place that invites frequent stays for travelers while also offering an essential setting for locals to gather. That sentiment will be at the heart of subsequent Hotel June properties planned across the U.S. and abroad.
Hotel June’s modern aesthetic reveals influences specific to each location, with the 250-room debut property blending Southern California inflections and beach culture with the classic midcentury architecture of the historic building originally designed by Welton Beckett. Venice-based design agency Studio Collective brings the relaxed and bright spirit of the West Coast to life with light natural woods, native fabrics, handmade tiles, and local art.
Building on Proper Hospitality’s network of culinary partners, Hotel June’s dining and drinking outlets are created in partnership with Steve Livigni of Happy To Serve You Hospitality Group (Scopa Italian Roots, DAMA, Old Lightning). With the opening, Hotel June and Livigni debut Caravan Swim Club, a two-level, outdoor restaurant and bar that celebrates California and Baja California regional influences and local ingredients.
