An epicenter of fine dining, The Peninsula Beverly Hills holds several holiday events and meals throughout the year in its classic, refined venues. You can celebrate Christmas Day at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Belvedere, which serves a traditional family-style meal with unlimited champagne. In the past, entrées have included gourmet dishes such as roasted free-range Sonoma turkey with a chestnut-marjoram dressing and roasted beef prime rib with Okinawa potato-goat cheese mousse.
On New Year’s Eve, mosey on over to The Living Room for elegant festivities, including a four-course dinner, live band, dancing and midnight countdown. If you can get up on time, the party continues the next morning with a New Year’s Day three-course jazz brunch featuring The Peninsula’s famous croque madame made with truffled brioche, aged country ham, fontina cheese and organic eggs. There’s unlimited champagne here too, in case you didn’t get your fill the night before. Watch for special teas throughout the year, as well as champagne brunches on holidays such as Easter and Mother’s Day.
The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Peninsula Beverly Hills also participates in a charity event during the end-of-year holidays that brings underprivileged children to the hotel to enjoy some festive gingerbread house crafting. The pastry chef creates a replica of the Beverly Hills hotel and the children have their gingerbread houses displayed throughout the hotel — an added touch that makes you feel the holiday spirit.
In homage to our Chinese roots at The Peninsula Beverly Hills — the first Peninsula Hotel was The Peninsula Hong Kong — we celebrate Chinese New Year every winter with a gala party, complete with Chinese dragon dancers. The event is open not only to guests, but to our friends and supporters in the community. Additionally, our hotel offers celebratory dinners and special events for holidays such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
