Trying to impress a special someone? Whether it’s a new love or an old flame, wow them with these ultra-romantic experiences at The Hollywood Roosevelt. From the debut of a new magic show, private photo sessions, glam dining and more, you’re sure to score points this Christmas.
Private Ambrotype Session: Photographer Giles Clement, known for his uniquely formatted portraits of Elvis Costello, Nick Offerman, Fiona Apple and others, has recently debuted ambrotype studio sessions at The Hollywood Roosevelt, where couples can work with Giles over a 90-minute private experience to produce a one-of-a-kind portrait taken with a self-made, old school camera and developed on a glass plate ($1,200).
Public Kitchen & Bar: Dine in style at The Hollywood Roosevelt’s signature American brasserie, where Old Hollywood glamour meets contemporary elegance and a carefully crafted seasonal menu sure to impress. Favorites include caramelized brussels sprouts with maple syrup (delicious and addicting), heirloom autumn squash with straciatella and pumpkin crème brulee.
The Magic Show: Now through January, join Justin Willman (of Netflix’s Magic for Humans) as he performs a tantalizing and interactive series of tricks and stunts that may (likely) even call for your participation. Wallflowers can watch from a tucked away booth and enjoy sophisticated theater snacks like spiced cashews and house made chips. Tickets here.
Tropicana Pool: Take your date’s breath away in this iconic oasis, which transports you to a luxe, ‘60s pool lounge where you can enjoy full bar service from a plush daybed near the David Hockney-muraled pool or an intimate nook privatized by tropical greenery. Enjoy California-inspired libations like the Ray Ban, Wayfarer Martini, Trop 75 and Hockney Negroni before you Uber home – unless you reserved one of the property’s chic Tower rooms or retro cabana suites, of course.
Pro Tip: Enjoy all experiences for the ultimate date night.
If you’re looking to visit before the holidays, you’re in for a winter wonderland treat as the hotel transforms into a Christmas spectacle. The lobby’s iconic center fountain has been replaced by a towering custom-built Christmas tree adorned in glass ornaments in shades of Champagne and platinum. Stately silver and gold toy soliders and nutcrackers welcome guests while the foyer walkway is lined with regally illuminated winter branches. Enjoy the Hollywood holiday cheer until Jan. 2.
