LOS ANGELES: The Bungalow

With the opening of The Bungalow at The Fairmont Miramar Hotel, Hollywood types now have a spot on the Westside to let their hair down.

Brent Bolthouse is not a man known for laid-back style. As one of the reigning princes of L.A.’s nightlife scene, Bolthouse is behind baller spots such as Hyde Lounge, XIV, and the Avalon, clubs where bottle service costs more than my rent.  But with the opening of The Bungalow at The Fairmont Miramar Hotel, Hollywood types now have a spot on the Westside to let their hair down, complete with ocean views, a game room, and an expansive patio. The decor at this free-standing cottage is inspired by Baja California, which translates to lush gardens, mismatched, overstuffed couches, and knick-knacks that seem to have been pulled straight from some hip surfer’s personal collection. Chef Ray Garcia of Fig fame has crafted a menu full of locally sourced small plates, like shrimp cocktail with avocado, cilantro and red onion, Mexican flatbread with queso fresco and black beans and that L.A. staple, the humble taco. A dizzying array of tequila and mezcal is also available, as well as sangrias and margaritas. The cocktail list features shrubs, oddly named yet delicious handmade drinking vinegars that originated in Colonial America, not commonly found on bar menus since the early 20th century. So if you want to kick it Bolthouse style by the beach, hit up The Bungalow this weekend.
