1 The Beverly Hilton Hotel Ballroom

You name an event, and it's held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Golden Globe Awards, Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party, the Academy Awards' Governors Ball...the list is endless! What spot could be hotter...or hauter?

The BookBindery and Brick Buildings, located in the heart of Culver City's Arts District, is the perfect place to host any sort of event.

3 Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. Mansion

Frank Lloyd Wright Jr.'s mega-mansion in the Hollywood Hills is the perfect backdrop for anything even resembling a Leonardo DiCaprio film. This Old Hollywood palace designed by Lloyd Wright, son of America’s greatest architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, was the setting for Martin Scorsese's DiCaprio vehicle, "The Aviator" and looks like the perfect place to host a Great Gatsby gala. The 6,000 square foot abode boasts a private spa-soak in a freestanding tub, a shower in a glass encased steam room, and a meditation area by a beautiful koi pond as well as a reading room with a huge salt water aquarium, a home theater system with surround sound, a gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, 2 fireplaces, outdoor fire pit, 2 exotic modern flaming torches, and a dramatic city view. Glamor isn't cheap though: renting this palace can run you up to $25,000.

4 SmogShoppe

For a trendy, artistic spot to host your holiday party, head to the SmogShoppe, a former smog-check station owned by Sherry Walsh, a former fashion designer, and her artist husband Miguel Nelson. To add extra LA cool credibility, remnants of the site's demolition -- wood, brick and an illegal billboard on the property -- can be found in the newly designed space. This spot sums up Los Angeles at its gritty best.

This gorgeous five-star luxury retreat set high in the Los Feliz Hills is the perfect spot to hold a glamorous gala.

This Henry Harwood Hewitt-designed villa can be rented out by the night, week, or month.
