Aside from the live music in the bar on Sunday and Monday evenings, Hotel Bel-Air does not offer any formal, planned activities for hotel guests. If you’re at the iconic hotel on those evenings, head down to the sultry new bar to kickback with a cocktail and listen to a live pianist perform everything from Frank Sinatra to smooth jazz. (Hollywood A-list guests have been known to give impromptu performances at the piano, including Jim Carrey and Sir Elton John). Occasionally the hotel will hold holiday-themed events, such as an Easter Egg hunt open to the surrounding community.
The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel staff can also help plan your own personalized events. Hotel Bel-Air exudes a posh residential feel, and it’s an ideal place for intimate gatherings like engagement parties, luncheons and even mixology workshops taught by the bar’s staff. The Enclave, a 570-square-foot treatment room in Hotel Bel-Air Spa by La Prairie, can hold intimate gatherings (birthday and bachelorette parties are popular) up to 10 people — it even opens up to a private garden where your group can have lunch or refreshments.
