A trip to Italy is a charmed addition to any birthday wishlist. Rather than heading to the bustling cities of Rome, Milan or Florence to museum hop, your next b-day bash could be all about rejuvenation and feeding the soul. If this sounds like your style, check out Sextantio in the beautiful and ancient town of Matera. The cave dwelling hotel is a stunner that dates back to 1930, while the town itself has been said to date back to the Paleolithic Age.

The best part? You can kick-start the planning right now and book your stay right here on The Venue Report website. Too easy!

Known for being a place of community + gathering, The LINE Hotel welcomes travelers and neighbors alike to their “haven for creative expression” in Koreatown, Los Angeles. This summer, The LINE hosted a dinner series, aptly named “Dinner with Strangers”, that gathered influencers from all corners of the creative industry to share a meal and conversation.

The goal: to bring big thinkers together to dine and ideate on what makes a space great. The “Dinner with Strangers” series not only encouraged strangers to become friends, but also enabled a dialogue for the hotel’s team to learn more about how influencers view communal spaces, including hotels and restaurants, what qualities make a gathering space great and also what features make someone want to stay in one venue over another. The diners agreed, ambiance and emotional connection play a big role in deciding on where to stay and play.
