El Bordello Alexandra

A wildly decorated building, populated with numerous metal statues and gargoyles.

Just off the Venice Beach Boardwalk lies one of the weirdest buildings in Southern California. It was originally built in 1906, reputedly as a brothel. Over the years it fell into disrepair before it was purchased by Tony Wells and Brittany Stevenson. They gutted the building and created the most eccentric renovation imaginable, decorated with murals, ironwork, and guardian statues. Though not immediately obvious, the property is actually an apartment building, home to artists and musicians who love the bohemian Venice lifestyle!
