Venturing out on a rainy evening is never anything less than a challenge. But when a good friend of mine was organising an event at Hotel LA to raise money for CanTeen, how could I let the miserable weather dampen my spirits? That and any excuse to check out somewhere I've never been is good enough for me.
Arriving at 5:30pm probably wasn't the best idea. It is Caxton St after all, and on a Friday that can only mean one thing: tradies! So ladies, if you don't enjoy being whistled at and having some rather questionable comments thrown your way, I suggest not passing through the Sports Bar before 9pm.
All in all there's real character to Hotel LA. I wouldn't spend a whole night there, but it's a great place to meet up with friends for a drink or 2 after work or to kick off a night out.
