West Hol­ly­wood

Variety - - Contenders -

High de­sign is one of West Hol­ly­wood’s as­sets. The lobby at the 105-room Kimp­ton La Peer Ho­tel — with its de­sign from ar­chi­tect Gulla Jons­dot­tir — is a pleas­ing com­bi­na­tion of com­fort­able low seat­ing, bronze ac­cents and curvy lines. It opens to a cov­ered “back­yard” bar, lounge and pool pro­vid­ing an easy in­door-out­door flow. (Audi set their pre-emmy shindig in the pool­side space.) There’s also a 4,000-square-foot rooftop ter­race at the ready fea­tur­ing a tented pav­il­ion.

Up on the Sun­set Strip, Tesse, from vet restau­ra­teur Bill Chait, can wel­come up to 80 for re­cep­tions, 50 seated in its ad­ja­cent wine store, Boutel­lier. Sep­a­rat­ing the restau­rant and pri­vate space is a bronze screen door; above is a strik­ing light-filled ocu­lus adding even more zing to the chic space.
