Chateau Marmont

Since the 1930s, The Chateau Marmont has been the place for stars to hole up, hide out, hook up and misbehave.  The bungalows have been graced by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Jim Morrison, James Dean, John Belushi, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and so many more. This little slice of Hollywood history and glamour has a large Spanish-style courtyard and garden terrace complete with amazing landscaping, bougainvillea and olive trees—the ideal place to grab a drink and play LA tourist for a night. While bartenders are relatively skilled with the classics, the real draw here is the view and the escape. There’s nothing else quite like it in the city.
