Known for our historic presence in Cypress Park (mere blocks from the LA River, with downtown Los Angeles below us and Highland Park just above), we have been sited in features, commercials, and photo shoots. A few years back, we hosted a few weddings and by mere accident became a unique and renown wedding location. While the weddings have been good to us, they also require a tremendous amount of energy and focus, which has taken away from our creative endeavors.
Therefore…in 2017, we are narrowing our focus towards creative events and design projects. We will no longer be hosting weddings, but will continue to host film and photo shoots, as well as select number of events.
MANIFEST DESTINY’s design lab is located at the HURON SUBSTATION and its products are made in the City of Angels. We were selected by UCLA’s The Hammer Museum, The Center for Art & Olfaction and Luckyscent to exhibit at the Hammer Museum’s AIX Scent Fair, the first major art exhibit to view scent as art.
MANIFEST DESTINY turns the negative concept of pioneering around, into both a positive and mutual experience. Acting as a portal into a fictitious world, fragrance transcends a scent description and becomes, instead, a story “told” via a candle’s scent projection and a story in our virtual storybook.

Upcoming workshops and events hosted by THE HURON SUBSTATION and MANIFEST DESTINY; from storytelling, to scent and food pairings, to writers workshops, we plan on nothing but compelling and unique activities for 2017 and beyond.
Of Note, we are about to launch THE SECRET SOCIETY OF SCENT, an offshoot of MANIFEST DESTINY which will sell signature fragrance products such as perfumes and scent diffusers, and host at the SubStation – Scent Dating: Human Pairings via Scent, a revolutionary concept in finding a great match.

Meike Kopp has designed many of the objects in the Huron SubStation, from the 8′ round chandelier in the main room, to the wine wall, tumbleweed bar, and metal front gate.
