The Imaginative Opulence of SLS Hotel

Text by Natalie Shirinian & Michelle Peerali

Hotelier SBE has done it again with the debut of the beautiful SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills and The Bazaar, located amid all the glitz and glamour of LA.

This hotel offers opulence at its best with an imaginative touch. Its exquisite layout and dimly lit interior, designed by Philippe Starck, is rich in fantasy and decadent down to the very last detail. The 297 guest rooms feature plush bedding, 40-inch flat screens, and personal little amenities and gifts in each.
Adjacent to the hotel is the wonderful world of The Bazaar. True to its name, The Bazaar is a mingling of sorts between the retail space, Moss (“the shop without walls”), and three restaurants: Bar Centro, Rojo y Blanca, and Pâtisserie.

When you enter The Bazaar you’re greeted by Bar Centro, a lounge area that offers a caviar menu, raw bar selections and cocktails crafted by some of LA’s top mixologists.

Moss, by Murray Moss and Franklin Getchell, is an area of The Bazaar where guests can browse through an array of eclectic art, photographs, sculptures and paintings, as well as selections encased in glass. These works visually entice, but are also available for purchase.

Delights for the palate are prepared by renowned Chef Jose Andres at Rojo y Blanca. The menu offers delicious tapas from Andres’ homeland. A few dishes on the menu are marinated mussels in escabeche served from a tin sardine can, Galician-style lobster medallions with fingerling potatoes, signature air bread sandwiches, and elaborate presentations of fruits and vegetables.

After dinner, guests can walk over to the Pâtisserie, a glass-encased pastry kitchen that mimics a real life version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The sweets are decadent and imaginative, and diners can enjoy them at tables lit by ornate chandeliers while seated on fanciful, jewel-adorned chairs.
The SLS at Beverly Hills appeals to those with artistic minds fueled by new and distinct experiences. 465 La Cienega Blvd, LA,
