BEVERLY HILLS — The Montage Beverly Hills will celebrate the New Year with a 1940s styled event on December 31.
The hotel’s theme for the end of the year celebration is in the vein of “stylish film noir” that will last well into the 2014’s arrival.
According to release from the Montage, the main event will begin at 8:00 p.m. inside the Marquesa Ballroom, where the open bar will become available to arriving guests. Live music with big band sounds and hors d’oeuvers like “truffled cheese puffs” are all to be expected.
At 9:00 p.m., a five-course 1940s themed dinner will be served alongside some wine pairings. These dishes will include a Lobster Thermidor Prince deMonaco and Filet Oscar. When the clock hits midnight, a champagne toast will be held to ring in the New Year. Prices are $345 per person, but the admission includes valet parking and reserved table seating.
Scarpetta will also host its own New Year celebration with a DJ and live music. The first seating will run from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will include a three-course prix fix dinner with champagne toast. The price is $95 per person. The second seating, lasting from 8:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., will include similar offerings where the champagne toast will happen at midnight. This event will cost $175 per person.
For the young ones, there is the Paintbox New Year’s Eve event which will see children celebrate 2014 with a magic show, karaoke and dinner. Starting at 6:00 p.m. and lasting until 12:30 a.m., the event at Paintbox will cost $140 per child.
In October, the Montage Beverly Hills announced that it would redesign one of its own suites to celebrate the Centennial Film Noir Suite, designed by Nina Petronzio, which can be booked beginning on January 28, 2014, and will be priced at $1,914, a nod to the year of the city’s founding.
