The Beverly Hills Hotel needs little introduction. Synonymous with Hollywood glamour and heritage, it’s one of the world’s most famous hotels. This autumn, however, heralds the reintroduction of the hotel’s popular cocktail lounge, Bar Nineteen12, which has reopened for the first time in more than two years. This elegant bar, which takes its name from the year the hotel first opened, is one of the most glamorous addresses in LA; renowned for its signature cocktails enjoyed overlooking spectacular sunsets. Now, Bar Nineteen12 introduces a new menu, soft interior redesign and magnificent garden-esque outdoor terrace to soak up those famous palm tree-lined views (and drinks). Inside, the space will highlight rotating art exhibitions, starting with a fantastic selection of never-before-seen Andy Warhol photos. These span the past 15 years of the artist’s life and include portraits of Tinseltown royalty and Studio 54 moments. Just in case you needed reminding that you’re in the hottest address in Hollywood.
