A Massive Holidays Themed Instagram Photo-Op Opens Up In The Arts District
The masterminds behind Fa La Land, marketed as “Tinseltown’s most vibrant and fun holiday pop-up museum,” are Legally Blonde author Amanda Brown, “TV journalist-turned mompreneur” Chloe Sommer, and Rory Dorsey. And they brought the ultimate selfie experience for all of you who start bumping “Last Christmas” by Wham! or Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” before it’s socially acceptable.
At Fa La Land, there’s also no shortage of Instagram traps. But you already knew that. There’s a mistletoe kissing booth, a Santa selfie station (which feels more like a sit-on-Santa’s-lap-even-though-you’re-too-old station), a room meant to replicate the North Pole (where you can snap a selfie with Mrs. Claus as she roams around), a maze-like room full of fluorescent Christmas pines, a room reminiscent of the board game Candyland, and also a room meant to serve as a mini-music festival—because you know you miss flower-crown season.
But before immersing yourself in these interactive rooms, you’ll have to be honest with yourself and choose one of two doors to enter: Naughty or Nice? Don’t lie; baby Jesus is watching. Once you’ve settled that, you’re free to flood your Grinch-y friends’ timelines with Fa La Land fun.
Fa La Land, through January 6 (closed Mondays) at ROW DTLA, 787 Alameda St., building 2, suite 138, downtown. Tickets are $37; children under 3 are free.
