Possibly my favorite place in Bel-Air. Amazing setting, excellent cocktails and just killer live music every night. Perfect place for some relaxed listening to classic covers of all stripes. Pricey but delicious cocktails. Service is rather slow, but staffs and alive music are awesome. 10/10.More

Description
The famous hotel bar retains its unique club-like vibe from years past but with a glamorous twist. A central fireplace, grand piano and wood paneled walls will make you feel like you've been transported back to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Herringbone design floors, antique mirrors, and an incredible leather woven bar adds richness and depth to this chic new space. Since our Southern California weather is our greatest asset, the Bar has been expanded into the outdoors with the addition of three cozy garden alcoves separated by bi-fold doors. The doors can be open or closed depending on your mood.
