Chateau Marmont




Last week before Halloween, a few friends and I headed over to the Chateau Marmont for the Smashbox Studios end of season soiree’ at Bar Marmont.  The theme of the get together was a Masquerade, thus explaining why we look like the Lone Rangers and Animal Farm.  Earlier in the evening, we grabbed dinner over at Bossa Nova while we all reconnected from our SMU days.  The boys imbibed in imported and craft beers, while the ladies loved the red sangria and caprihanas (don’t forgo the cachaca!)

Back at the party, masked party-goers mingled and sipped cocktails in one of Hollywood’s most iconic hide-aways.  I have a love/hate relationship with Bar Marmont.  Let’s explore the love with the intimacy of the space, delish charcuterie platters, strong yet pricy drinks and good people watching, then I hateeeee waiting for the bathroom and for some odd reason, the butterfly filled ceiling seems like a bad sci-fi dream to me.  Will it stop me from pre-partying there with my friends?  Of course not, it’s a hop, skip, and jump away from some of the hot spots LA has to offer.
