TOUR DAY UPDATE: it is now too late to buy tickets online, but you may pay at the bus door (cash/check/credit card). Call 213-915-8687 to reserve.
There are no paper tickets: your name will be on a list at the bus door. Check in is at 11am for a 11.30am sharp departure from the Los Angeles Athletic Club.
We encourage passengers to arrive early at the Los Angeles Athletic Club for a late breakfast in their 3rd floor dining room, The Famous Player's Room. This will allow you ample time to commune in a space Raymond Chandler visited often when he was an oil company executive across the street. Check in for the tour is 11am, so we recommend getting there for breakfast no later than 10.30am. The price per person for the buffet breakfast is $15.50 (including taxes and gratuity), and the buffet includes juices, cereals, fruits, waffles, omelettes to order, etc. Our group will gather to begin the tour in the lounge on the 3rd floor. Anyone not having breakfast will simply proceed to the 3rd floor lounge for check in at 11am.
At the end of the tour passengers will have the option to proceed to up to the bar (Invention) on the 3nd floor of the Los Angeles Athletic Club for a cocktail for further meditation on Raymond Chandler's life and work.
Food and drink are permitted and suggested; no audio or video-taping without permission. We regret that there are no refunds for passengers who miss the bus.
Tickets can be ordered online until the morning of the tour. For last minute bookings, please feel free to call 213-915-8687 after 8am on tour day, and if there are seats available, you can reserve a spot and pay with cash at the bus.
