Get ready Los Angeles natives, the beginning of a new year can only mean one thing, a brand new list of places to spend your weekend.
One spot that should definitely make that list is Liaison Restaurant + Lounge (formerly Les Deux) in Hollywood. And if their private opening reception last Thursday is any indication of what’s to come, when you go you can expect a fun time that will most likely begin by a wait in line behind celebrity clientele. Actors, models, and reality TV stars spent their Thursday night eating, drinking, and hitting up the dance floor to the beats of DJ Fashen.
Attendees included Jeremy Piven:
Former American Idol judge Randy Jackson:
Model Shaun Ross:
and Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi.:
And if whom you might run into isn’t enough to tempt you to come out for the night, the venue and libations should be.
Feeling much more intimate than your typical club, Liaison Restaurant + Lounge offers a rustically chic design. Beginning in a wood and leather clad parlor room with a huge main bar and leading to a beautiful open air “outdoor area” complete with a retractable skyline, a dance floor, and another bar, there’s a spot for everyone to nestle in and enjoy their night.
What’s going on plates is just as tempting as what’s being poured into glasses. Renowned Chef Nick Barainca offers a seasonal menu just as delectable and trendy as the place that’s serving it. Formerly found at Venice’s AK, the Four Seasons in the Beverly Wilshire hotel, and Melisse, Barainca combines bold flavors with guilty pleasure classics such as ginger chicken dumplings, kuri squash fritters, and edible cookie dough.
Start 2017 off right by treating yourself to a night on the town catered by Liaison Restaurant + Lounge. While your wallet might not be pleased, it’ll be one evening you’ll want to soon repeat.
