Art At The Rendon presents STORIES, an immersive, operatic work that will transform The Rendon Hotel through a layering of film projection and live performances. Following the successful inaugural event HIDDEN ROOMS presented earlier this summer, Art At The Rendon’s latest production will continue the creative narrative with the building and its colorful history as inspiration.

STORIES will combine film projections and live performances to activate both the exterior and interior of the vacant hotel. The original corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill, will be reimagined as a 1920’s speakeasy with libations by Angel City Brewery, Infuse Spirits and Pali Wine and music by The Vignes Rooftop Revival. All are based in the Arts District.
