Tucked away from the busy Venice Beach Boardwalk is this incredibly weird and interesting apartment building with an overly decorated front, El Bordello Alexandra.
It’s just couple steps away from Venice Beach Boardwalk. Once you know what street to walk to, Westminster Avenue, this stand-out complex is hard to miss. Not just how bizarre it is, but just look how gold it is!
And once you’re there, you’ll be amazed, mystified, intrigued and amused.
The artworks can be very intimidating for some.
It is outrageously decorated with contrasting themes. There are demons and angels, gargoyles, fairies, mermaid men? and centaurion, knights, dragons, and other imaginary and mystical creatures …
Here’s a fun fact. Bordello is a slang for a house of prostitution. El Bordello Alexandra was humored to be as such, what once a heroine den, and is now, like previously said, an art-filled (inside and out) private residential building.
Here are some of the most unusual, unique, weird, odd, out-of-this-world, one-of-a-kind, outlandish, and fun places in California…. visit Unique California.
My apology for the inactivity from my part. Rommel will get his groove back in no time. 😀 Just had a big important exam last week.
THE SOPHOMORE SLUMP RECOMMENDS:
Book: The Third Policeman by Flann O’brien. Is the earth shaped like a sausage? Humor and mystery will stun you at the very end!
Music: Vampire Weekend (self-titled). Just when Indie Pop is losing its fame, Vampire Weekend comes in and gave us the most effective and successful of its kind, both in POPularity and as redeeming Indie Pop-ish innovator.
Movie: The Social Network. Sometimes you gotta be mad to be a genius. Real-life character of Mark Zuckerberg and director, David Fincher, proved that. In my view, this is one of the best in combining musical score and cinematography.
