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.
