As some of you know, I spend my days answering phones, scheduling and doing all the glamourous tasks given to a Hollywood assistant. But every now and then we do actually get to experience some of the glitz and glamour in person…. Last night I had to work the LA premiere of MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM. I have yet to see the movie, but I know that anything that stars Idris Elba is going to be freaking fantastic (side note: he’s just as dreamy in person. I may have swooned when he walked by me on the red carpet…)
Anyways, this post is about beautiful spaces, not beautiful men. Like every other Hollywood premiere since the dawn of time, the film screening was followed by an after party. I was one of the lucky few who got to get a sneak peek at the event space before the party: the newly opened club THE WARWICK in the heart of Hollywood on Sunset Blvd.
It. Was. GORGEOUS. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. We’re talking supple leather couches, fireplaces backed with herringbone-patterned brick, brass accents and beautiful rugs.
They were still prepping the space while I was there so I only managed to snag a few quick iPhone photos that I shared on Twitter, but I managed to grab some other great pics of the space online. I’m not normally a Hollywood club goer but this is making me seriously reconsider that stance. I hate lines but I would definitely wait to get inside of this space again.

The space is the perfect eclectic mix of old school study, Hollywood glamour with just a touch of industrial. And the art and accessories just take it to a whole new level – giant nude black and white photos on either side of the main bar and this guy perched on top:
He’s kind of fabulous and I wanted to take him home just to see Jefe’s reaction.
So who wants to spend next Saturday at the Warwick with me?! I’m ready to put on my party shoes and throw back a scotch.
