VIP-LA gives Haute Living inside access to the most luxurious happenings in LA. Check out their recommendations for this week:

EAT: Eveleigh, West Hollywood

Enjoy brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks in a rustic barn on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood.

When was the last time you were in a barn, dining and drinking on the Sunset Strip? Never? Well, you better keep reading.

Welcome to Eveleigh (pronounced “Everly”); the coolest barn on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Open seven days/nights a week for your brunching, drinking, lunching, drinking, dinner and (you guessed it) drinking pleasure. Eveleigh follows the rustic barn theme throughout the restaurant’s entire concept. From its rustic décor of reclaimed wood floors and silvery accents surrounding a central fireplace, to its peak-roofed, sun-lit, lemon tree-centered patio, the eatery is homey and warm throughout.

The rustic, “all-natural ingredients” theme is congruent with the excellent food & beverage program at Eveleigh as well. Chef Jordan Toft and Mixologists Dave Kupchinsky, Kiowa Bryans and Kevin Tidwell’s seasonally-designed menus feature the latest in farmers market finds; this place screams FRESH.

So on your next date, walk off the bustling Sunset Strip, past the tranquil water fountain, and into the barn where you’re greeted with warm hospitality. Get a table in the back terrace by a fig tree, and enjoy the cozy warmth of a California night in a country barn. Indulge in some of the freshest cuisine this side of Kansas, some of the finest cocktails in Los Angeles, and one of the most distinctive settings, well, anywhere.

Check out their brunch from 10AM-3PM on the weekends, and come back for their “Farmer’s Market Sundays” where the team of top mixologists create a new bar menu with fresh ingredients from the Hollywood Farmer’s Market.

DRINK: Hyde Lounge, West Hollywood

The Hollywood celeb hotspot that defined the term UBER-Exclusive Nightlife is back!

It’s back! The Hollywood Hotspot that defined the term UBER-Exclusive Nightlife, and has a history of A-List-Only requirements to pass its velvet ropes is re-opening  on August 17th. After being one of the longest-running and most successful clubs in Hollywood nightlife history, Hyde Lounge shut its doors for makeover in February of this year. The “2.0″ version is said to be completely renovated and beautifully remodeled. Gulla Jonsdottire, of G+ Design (Red OMy StudioEden) designed SBE’s new Hyde Lounge to resemble the inside of an ornate jewelry box. From what we’ve heard, she’s hit it, spot on.

The intimate space is known to be the after hours playground of Hollywood’s elite, such as: Paris HiltonLindsay LohanBeyonceJanet JacksonKevin ConnollyHilary DuffChristina AguileraJared LetoKevin SpaceySlash,Jessica SimpsonLauren ConradAudrina Partridge and more. The powerhouse promotion team of partners, Brent Bolthouse and Jenifer Rosero of Bolthouse Productions, are back in bed with SBE to make sure that “Hyde 2.0″ lives up to its predecessor’s legacy. Expect an iron-clad velvet rope for the first couple months. After the initial “A-List Only” phase, expect the usual protocol to get access to any of SBE‘s hotspots; Guys, come looking your best with at least 3 girls for every 1 guy and be ready to buy a table. Ladies, come looking your ABSOLUTE best or be famous. Groups of hot girls get priority, unless the group is too big.

Celebrity DJ and frequent patron of the old Hyde, Samantha Ronson will be providing the audio stimulation for the opening event on the 17th. A new craft cocktails & small bites menu will be available at the new Hollywood Royalty Den as well.

See and be seen; it’s the Hollywood way! We’ll be “Hyde-in Out” at the new Hyde if anyone is looking for us.
