(Slow) Dance The Night Away!

The countdown to the most beloved or hated holiday has begun. In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, we’re highlighting The Sunset Strip’s many unique offerings.
 

Looking to return to a simpler time? Maybe one that channeled your grade school romps around the dance floor: shuffling feet, arms hung around shoulders and waists, Boyz II Men or Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares” blasting. Recapture those first pangs of love at Skybar’s “Slow Dance” Valentine’s Day party.

The party provides a much more attractive view than your school gym, and no need to spike the punch. This dance features complimentary champagne and desserts from 8 -10 p.m.

The party starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m., or whenever your parents pick you up.

To RSVP for table reservations, email skybarLA@morganshotelgroup.com

Rainy Days Are Here Again

Longing for sunnier days? Remember this is LA, the land of special effects, so even if it is dreary and pouring outdoors, you can still pretend warm spring days are here.

Trick your tastebuds into believing it’s summer with some fresh cocktails. Stop by RH at Andaz for happy hour and receive complimentary gourmet bar bites with your drink. Channel springtime with a glass of Domaine Fontsainte Rose ($12), or go tropical with the rum-based Carnival featuring Papagayo Organic white rum, white peach juice and fresh raspberries ($13).

Try the Ruby Red Sunset ($14) — Absolut ruby red vodka, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, fresh grapefruit juice and fresh lime juice — or The Wimbleton, Pimm’s Cup No. 1 ($10.20) — fresh mint, cucumber and fresh lemon and lime juices served on the rocks — at Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood.

Travel to the sunny South of France without leaving Sunset with BLT Steak’s raw bar. Enjoy periwinkles ($9 for half pound), oysters ($20), or the decadent seafood platter featuring oysters, clams, crab claws, shrimp, Taylor Bay scallops, lobster and ceviche ($90). Add a glass of bubbly to the mix for a meal that is beyond magnifique. 

Cactus Lounge at The Standard brings the rugged, sunny desert direct to you. Surrounded by a wrap-around desert mural, sip one of five signature mojitos ($12) and enjoy fresh guacamole with plantain chips ($7) with views of the pool.

Or warm up by cozying up to the fireplace at The Den of Hollywood while enjoying $5 margaritas and martinis from 8 p.m. to close on Tuesdays, and half-priced happy hour from 5-7 p.m. weekdays and 3-7 p.m. weekends.

And when all else fails, laughter really is the best medicine. Chase away those blues with a show at the world famous Comedy Store. Bring two friends and the three of you can score free entry with The Store’s  three-for-free ticket.

Super Bowl Viewing On Sunset

This Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! the New Orleans Saints are set to take on the Indiana Colts in the most epic of American sporting events: the Super Bowl.

Spreading Holiday Cheer: Tweet Crawl III

The date was Friday, Dec. 18. And while the rest of the country was trying to defrost from arctic blasts, revelers on The Sunset Strip were warm and toasty as they embarked on the third Tweet Crawl, this one featuring an amped up holiday party theme.

The holiday edition of this increasingly successful Twitter-based crawl featured The Standard Hotel (@standardhwood), The Comedy Store (@TheComedyStore), Citysearch LA (@CitysearchLA), the Viper Room (@theViperRoom), Hustler retail (@hothustlerhoney), and The Roxy Theatre (@TheRoxy). Essentially an internet tracked bar and club hop, these interactive Tweet Crawl tours are organized by a network of Sunset Strip (@thesunsetstrip) businesses and venues.

The Roxy Theatre, Viper Room and Comedy Store organized the initial Tweet Crawl this summer, and the self-titled “Social Strip” group has become known as trailblazing innovators in their use of social networking as a marketing tool and promoting The Strip as a whole.

Beginning just after dusk, the Tweet Crawl featuring “ugly holiday sweaters” kicked off at The Standard Hollywood hotel. Their chic retro-future backdrop set the tone for a long night of tasty treats and frosty beverages. Offering a special Tweet Crawl menu of holiday inspired cocktails and mini apps, The Standard was the perfect launch pad for this social soiree.

After meeting up with their fellow Tweeps and collecting commemorative buttons from each participating venue’s representative — which served as the “ticket” for the night — the crawl continued on to The World Famous Comedy Store.

Upon arrival at The Comedy Store, the crawlers were immediately seated in the Main Room and treated to holiday-inspired a capella carols from the Tinseltone Carolers (@Tinseltones). Contrasting the overzealous enthusiasm of the choral group was a set by Store favorite Ari Shaffir (@Arishaffir), whose FML stories played well with the “been there, done that” L.A. crowd. The highpoint of the show came with comic Nader Modarres (@Nadskis), whose hilariously, irreverent set came in the form of an audience Q&A about his Jewish culture.

The tweeps crawled down The Strip to the next stop at the headquarters of Citysearch LA. Reconvening in the lobby of their towering offices, the net based city/entertainment guide offered an assortment of tasty food from the Veggie Grill on and holiday spirits in the form of crisp, clean PBR (@PBR_LA). Joined by rockaholic reps from 98.7 FM, the crawlers were also treated to a wide assortment of prizes, providing of course that they could answer a number of holiday trivia questions.

The next stop on this interactive field trip was the notorious Viper Room, representing Hanukah for all those of the “Xmas” persuasion. Amidst the festival of lights, the bar offered a special discount menu of holiday beverages, including a blue concoction called “the Hanukah Cocktail”.

After a short pit stop at The Hustler Store to collect a goodie bag filled with their brand of holiday toys, the crawlers wrapped their Sunset Strip expedition at On The Rox above The Roxy Theatre. There, the tired and “over-spirited” socializers, wound down their evening by butchering — I mean performing — karaoke versions of their favorite holiday tunes and building gingerbread versions of their favorite Sunset Strip landmarks. You can only imagine the kind of mayhem that ensues with multiple cans of aerosol frosting amidst a band of crawlers.

In what’s likely to become a holiday tradition, The Sunset Strip’s Tweet Crawl III was a raging success. And in this new techno-era, success may be judged by the amount of hits, posts, tweets, and retweets littering the various social networking sites on the net, but it is reinforced by the number of happy faces exiting On The Rox on a brisk, Los Angeles winter night.

The Sunset Strip Launches Summertime Consumer Relief Offers

The notorious Sunset Strip, which stretches 1.3 miles through the heart of West Hollywood, is launching its own version of an ‘economic stimulus package’ to consumers with special offers throughout the summer.

"The recession is impacting people in our communities, so we’re offering special events and discounts so they can still enjoy The Strip this summer even on a budget," explains Todd Steadman, executive director of the Sunset Strip Business Association.

 With consumer spending making up more than two-thirds of U.S. gross domestic product, The Sunset Strip is offering special incentives in hopes of helping to contribute to the nation’s economic rebound. Businesses on The Strip also hope that the consumer relief offers will cut local residents a break as Los Angeles County increases sales tax to 9.75% starting July 1.

The iconic locale, which is packed with more than 150 clubs, restaurants, shops, hotels and music venues, will offer visitors to The Strip special summer deals. A few include:

The Strip’s Summer Happy Hour: Restaurants and bars are offering specially priced food and drink happy hours. Including $2 beers, $5 Mediterranean platters at Restaurant at Sunset Marquis; $3 beers, $4 cocktails at Rainbow Bar & Grill; $4 cocktails at Talesai; $5 martinis and $4 appetizers at Mirabelle; half-priced drinks at Saddle Ranch Chop House and Red Rock; and two-for-one drinks at Isla and Cabo Cantina.

Twitter Free Access: Follow Sunset Strip establishments, including The Viper Room, The Roxy Theatre and The Comedy Store, for free tickets and access to upcoming shows throughout the week.

$5 Nights: Find drinks and dishes for $5 and under at venues including Mirabelle, Red Rock, Katana, Viper Room, Clafoutis, Tony’s Italian Steakhouse, and Rainbow Bar & Grill.

Special Summer Discounts: Several boutiques and spas along The Strip, including LIVE! On Sunset, KIN, Mystery Pier Books, Inc., Ole Henriksen, and Spa at Mondrian, are offering "Sunset Strip Summer" 20% off discounts for consumers.

"People are looking for the best value for their money, and most Sunset Strip businesses are offering consumers and visitors a great night out for a good value throughout the summer," states Mikeal Maglieri, co-owner of the Rainbow Bar & Grill and Whisky A Go-Go and SSBA Board President.

The Sunset Strip’s "consumer relief" offers will run June 8 – August 31, 2009. For more information about the campaign as well as a complete list of business offers and summer events, please visit dev.thesunsetstrip.com/summer
