Built in 1906 as one of the premier hotels in the country, the Alexandria played host to the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, Rudolph Valentino and Clark Gable, as well as Winston Churchill and numerous US Presidents (Theodore Roosevelt among them). Now an apartment building focused on affordable "micro-loft" housing, the Alexandria is host to both its tenants as well as a wide array of special events, from spoken word performances to dance parties. Check out a show here, then grab a drink next door at the Down and Out, a dive-y bar under the same roof.
