I've been there.  If I remember correctly, there is quite an exotic elevator there, too.

Amazing place. Ahead of its time.
It also makes appearances in Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim books.

Yes.  That is the Bradbury Building.

Made to look a lot more dilapidated in the movie, Blade Runner...
Built in 1893, the building was commissioned by Los Angeles gold-mining millionaire Lewis L. Bradbury and constructed by draftsman George Wyman from the original design by Sumner Hunt


The wrought-iron was created in France and displayed at the Chicago World's Fair before being installed in the building.
