Beauty and Essex is the newest addition to the Hollywood nightlife scene. The restaurant was made popular by its Las Vegas residency inside the Cosmopolitan hotel and TAO group has opened another in Hollywood. From the decadent atmosphere to the incredible food, Beauty and Essex does not disappoint. The entrance takes you back to the speakeasy days of glamorous old Hollywood as the entrance is through a hidden door at the back of a luxury antique shop. When you open the door you're welcomed by an over the top foyer dripping in crystals. It is definitely a destination, not just a restaurant.
If you're not in the mood for dinner, simply head upstairs to the bar that overlooks the chic alley in which the restaurant is located giving a secluded and private feeling instead of the usual packed Hollywood hotspots.
Their signature cocktails are delicious and we recommend trying the lobster mac and cheese if you're feeling decadent. Enjoy!
