PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
Exclusive lobby lounge and terrace at the Chateau Marmont. The elegant stone interiors are dotted with an eclectic collection of deep, comfortable sofas and beautiful people, while outside glasses clink under lofted stone arches and shady vine-covered trellises. Smooth live jazz, genteel service, and romantic candlelight make this a grown-ups-only spot. In keeping with the old Hollywood castle surrounds, it is a throwback to days past.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Upper-most upscale casual. We’d wear an elegant little dress and coolly chic sandals.
GO HERE WITH
A date; friends; clients or colleagues
An extremely well-heeled mix of celebs, globetrotters, industry execs, the business power scene, and starry-eyed couples.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The ever-so-chic vibes, schmoozing jet-setters, and deep sofas.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
If you are not a hotel guest, you will probably not be able to enjoy this spot in the nighttime hours, especially if celebs are in the house when the door policy gets extremely difficult.
GOOD TO KNOW
Don’t get Chateau Marmont Lounge mixed up with Chateau Marmont’s other nightlife venue, Bar Marmont, which is located just down the hill from the lounge. This is a restaurant by day, nightlife venue by night; the weekend brunches are popular. Wi-Fi and valet parking are both available.
