The Chateau

Had a fun holiday dinner with the One-Two Punch team at one of my favorite Hollywood gems.  The Chateau Marmont was built in 1927 as a premiere luxury apartment building modeled loosely after the Chateau D'Amboise in the Loire Valley.  It was sold during the depression and reopened as a hotel soon after.  Never big on the LA bar scene, The Chateau was one of my favorite haunts in the '90s when it was somewhat threadbare, and the cast of characters unpredictable.  Although more popular, it's still as charming as ever, especially at Christmas time.
