The Redbury is so much more than just a hotel—it’s an all-encompassing, one-stop-shop destination. But then, it’s an sbe property: CEO and founder Sam Nazarian wouldn’t have one of his establishments run any other way. As curated renowned by photographer Matthew Rolston in collaboration with Nazarian, this haute hotel pays homage to the golden era of Hollywood with its kitschy, cool interiors and, of course, by its location at the iconic intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Check out all you can expect to experience when you check in to The Redbury.
The Redbury is an all-suite hotel, meaning that each and every guest automatically feels like they’ve been given an upgrade. However, if you want a super-luxe space, book the Hollywood Premiere Suite, a 850 square foot one-bedroom space with walk-in rain showers, floor-to-ceiling windows and tons of closet space. You’ll also find homey touches like a European-style kitchen, fully stocked bar, an oversized kitchen island and a washer/dryer.
The suites here are all about the cool, personalized touches. You’ll find nods to the bygone golden era in the form of large prints of vintage movie stars, pin-up girls and Hollywood maps among the warm red, orange and leather decor. While exploring your suite, you might ooh and ahh at all the kitschy touches, like the green glass water goblets, Ciel Spa bath amenities, the 300 thread count Italian linens, the collection of vinyl and accompanying record player.
Nazarian is all about his guests, which is why those staying in any of the suites can call in in-suite spa services and yoga or Pilates, a complimentary BMW house car and pressing, dry cleaning and alteration services. As if that wasn’t enough, The Redbury offers a Katsuya in-room dining menu though the eatery isn’t, in fact, located within the hotel itself (though it is just down the street).
*Insider tip: If you’re an early riser, grab a coffee and make sure to break the dawn on your balcony where you can see the sun rise over Hollywood.
Cleo—named after Egyptian queen Cleopatra—is as much a night spot as it is an eatery. Chef Danny Elmaleh offers a menu of Middle Eastern cuisine such as mezzes, shared plates and flatbreads in an atmosphere that’s Hollywood meets Mediterranean chic. Expect to find staples such as babaghanoush, hummus with tahini, couscous, Turkish salad, meatball tagine and everything in between.
The Library is definitely a Hollywood hot spot. This indoor/outdoor lounge has a cool vibe, a cozy courtyard and also offers a cool, speakeasy-ish vibe where partygoers can sip classic cocktails (with a twist of course) while playing pool or simply gazing at the mass of beautiful people around them. Here you’ll find walls lined with books, tufted leather armchairs, hardwood floors, oversized furniture, lush landscaping and a seductive view of the city. It’s a great date spot thanks to the sultry embers glowing from its fire pits and the endless stars that somehow fight their way through the Los Angeles smog gathered overhead.
We’re also big fans of the tongue-in-cheek cocktail menu, which features libations like the “Old Hollywood”—Bulleit bourbon whiskey, housemade fig-almond syrup and a dash of walnut bitters—as well as the “Honey Citrus Sidecar”—Jack Daniels, Cointreau, crushed mint, yuzu juice and agave nectar with a raspberry twist. Grab one, pull up a prime spot by the firepit and prepare to let the night take you away.
