GQ Style Suite - NeueHouse Hollywood - Los Angeles Event
December 7, 2017
Some of LA’s most stylish gents and ladies showed up to GQ’s Style Suite in Hollywood on Wednesday. I didn’t know what to expect as I braved the traffic from the Westside to the NeueHouse on Sunset.
The event took place on the rooftop Paley Penthouse. It was the perfect venue allowing guests to sample food or get a drink at the bar inside or heading out for a little fun in the sun on the rooftop patio.
My first stop was to get a fresh cup of coffee served up by Nespresso. It was delicious and just what I needed to focus, but would have been great over ice as it turned out to be a hotter day than I expected. It was good to see sunscreen available so guests didn’t burn while playing ping pong or giant Jenga or enjoy a fresh trim up from GQ’s professional grooming services.
I headed inside to beat the heat and check out the amazing collection of Hamilton watches on display. This year marks the 60th anniversary of their iconic Ventura electric watch famously worn by celebs such as Elvis Presley. It’s easy to see why the King wore such a stylish time piece with its unique design that stands out in the best ways possible.
Guests also got to try out the variety of Master & Dynamic over-the-ear headphones. On top of having crystal clear sound, they are built for style with forged aluminum, stainless steel, premium cowhide and lambskin.
Time flew by and my appetite was growing. Luckily there was a wide assortment of delicious eats to choose from including an amazing avocado toast with egg and honey which, paired well with their “New Fashioned” Bulleit whiskey cocktail with house-made grenadine and orange bitters.
I finished my drink and watched the setting sun burn through the far off smoke from the nearby fires. It was likely going to be tough ride out West. However, it was well worth it not just for the view, but to share an amazing experience of the guests and crew of GQ’s who came together to share their styles.
