Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, the only hotel located on Rodeo Drive, announced the opening of its Residence Club lounge and tasting room concept, exclusively available for guests who stay at the property.
Starting on January 1, 2016 the haute hotel will convert into a private, guest-only experience, with hotel access limited to guests who book stays at the hotel.
The most notable transformation will be that the hotel’s lobby will transform into an all-new Residence Club lounge, which will give the sense of a members-only private club, with a tasting room and bar, where guests can relax, gather and converse over a selection of beers, fine wines and spirits, and innovative food offerings.
The new private Residence Club lounge environment will evoke the vibe of an edgy and updated social club, giving guests a “members only” feeling in a modern-day boutique hotel on Rodeo Drive. The club and its tasting room will have many classical features and furnishings, but with modern accents and twists.
The tasting room will be open daily, offering continental breakfast from 6:30am to 10am, an afternoon tasting menu from 12pm-2pm, and an evening taste from 5pm-8pm. The lounge bar will also offer wine, beer, soft drinks, and selected cocktails from 5pm-10pm, and a 24-hour beverage center, which will offer coffee, tea and water.
Luxe Hotels Executive Chef Olivier Rousselle crafted the tasting room menu at Luxe Rodeo Drive Hotel, which will display Rousselle’s love for farm-fresh, sustainable ingredients. Varying day-to-day, evening tastes will consist of signature crostini, artisan sandwiches, and seasonally-inspired salads of the day. Afternoon tastes will feature a lighter fare, which will include house-made dips, chips and seasonal chilled soups. Breakfast offerings include house made baked goods, rotating egg dish and breakfast meat, as well as cereals and seasonal fruits.
The hotel’s current restaurant will close November 1, 2015.
