Bar Marmont Coupons and Deals
The seven-story Chateau Marmont has long been a hot spot for movers and shakers. Celebrities love the hilltop hotel, overlooking Sunset Boulevard, for its discretion—and of course, for chef Carolynn Spence's cooking. The Los Angeles Times has raved about her "lusty food," calling her culinary approach "rustic and direct—she doesn't know how to do dainty." So we're curating an exclusive Gourmet experience from Bar Marmont that showcases the best she has to offer: a pop-up-style dinner with six courses, a cocktail demo from lead bartender William Conklin, two cocktails, and three wine pairings ($160, including gratuity and other fees). The 18-seat dinners are hosted on select Mondays at 7 p.m. In the private dining room—a comfortable space with wooden walls, warm lighting, and a vaulted ceiling—guests will be treated to a cocktail demonstration led by the master of spirits, William Conklin. He'll craft two specialty drinks, both made with Hendrick's Gin, to pair with the first two courses: house-smoked trout on crispy potatoes with crème fraiche, and then a cherry-balsamic-drizzled salad with peach slices, bits of cucumber, and peppered goat cheese. From there, the menu continues with three wine pairings from Semler Wines and the third, fourth, and fifth courses: almond-crusted bass with lemon-caper sauce, braised duck ragoût with English pea gnocchi, and a spiced hanger steak with avocado, heirloom tomatoes, and a corn cake. The sixth course is dessert: strawberries, granita, and cream, paired with coffee. That's an experience worthy of the red carpet, and you never know who might be sipping martinis at the bar.
