a reception or dinner at a magnificent estate at the top of Malibu with
breathtaking city, ocean and mountain views (this is exactly what we
provided for Nike, Inc. this past month). Or dining and dancing at an
architecturally significant landmark steeped in rich, historic opulence
(a company holiday party we just confirmed this week). Perhaps you
would prefer a $30 million private ranch complete with emus and llamas,
breathtaking scenery, spectacularly landscaped grounds and a full-size
tennis court for dining under the stars.
city's film studios provide many options to accommodate different
budgets for that requisite "Hollywood bash": soundstages, production
lot theme locations, even private studio restaurants that cater to
stars and studio executives by day and cater to your guests at night in
exclusive Hollywood style.
Private entertainment industry
complexes with luxurious lobbies and outdoor plazas have adjacent film
and video theatres should you desire a special "screening" and
reception for your guests. Our city's landmark theatres and performing
arts centers are breathtaking architectural gems and often exemplify
the beauty and opulence of the Art Deco style. Their lobbies provide
excellent ambience for entertaining.
Have a large group to
accommodate? How about this magnificent architectural landmark: an
entertainment complex highlighted by a majestic10,000 square-foot glass
skylight and terraced wings and a grand atrium covered by a soaring
90-foot canopy of glass. Los Angeles' legendary train station suggests
an early California mission. It's romantic and elegant, spacious and
beautiful and its expansive main concourse can accommodate up to 900
guests. Talented event professionals can even transform an airplane
hangar into a fabulous party site for thousands.
elegant group? Perhaps you would choose an exclusive Sunset Boulevard
hotel displaying photos of the great stars by legendary photographer
George Hurrell and dine on the terrace with a spectacular city view. Or
choose one of Los Angeles' legendary restaurants - a Hollywood
institution known for its warm and elegant ambiance and known also for
the celebrities, sports personalities, big business CEOs and political
luminaries who are its regulars. Another restaurant originally built as
a replica of a grand Japanese palace overlooks the city. The Japanese
feast and traditionally attired servers provide further evidence of the
cross-cultural experience of Los Angeles.
Museums range from
fine to contemporary art, the art of the West, the art and evolution of
mankind and species - all are conducive settings to the art of partying.
venues require the services of an independent catering company; others
provide in-house catering only. Generally speaking, when the venue
generates profit from in-house food and beverage, location fees are
lower or nonexistent and rental equipment (tables, chairs, linen,
china, etc.) is included, making the event less costly for the more
conservative budget. The unique appeal and desirability of a particular
location site for your company's event, however, will often justify a
bit more expense.
Budget may determine your selection of venue,
but please don't make the mistake of isolating the location cost. The
determining factor should be your budget for the entire event, not just
location cost. Often there are creative ways of working within your
budget even with a pricey venue. Utilizing the services of an event
professional who has a longstanding association with locations and
vendors will help considerably and may work some magic.
conclusion, Los Angeles' unique and exciting selection of special event
venues is unequaled and our company is here to help you choose the one
that's perfect for you and to package your event to perfection.
