Job Description

NeueHouse is the private workspace and cultural home for creators, innovators, and thought leaders. With iconic buildings, timeless design, thought-provoking cultural experiences, and elevated hospitality, NeueHouse has reimagined the ideal environment for creative potential and progress. Our Bradbury House sits within the Bradbury building in DTLA. Built in 1893, the Bradbury Building is an architectural masterpiece and one of Los Angeles' most historic landmarks. It has been heralded as one of the most thrilling spaces in all North America and is renowned for its breathtaking skylit atrium filled with walkways, stairs, balconies, and intricate ironwork.

Wyman Bar ensconced in the timeless architecture of the Bradbury Building in downtown Los Angeles delivers a 50's era bar experience. Architecture, Adventure, and the Golden Era of Hollywood are captured within Wyman Bar. Our concept focuses on classic 50's fare realized today. The menu skews to raw bar and handhelds; Lollipop lamb chops, burger, lobster roll, crab club and oysters, a perfect menu for the uncommitted. Aperitivo is owned with the Garibaldi cocktail, a blend of fresh whipped orange juice and Campari, a nod to the state fish of California. Relevant classics are expanded with variations of the Old Fashioned, Martini and vibrant Tiki cocktails over crushed ice. Old and new world wines with an accessible by the glass selection, a curated list of Champagne splits, half wine bottles for those spontaneous mini celebratory moments and a relevant selection of Tequila, Mezcal and American whiskey on our back bar complete the experience.
