Route 66 Soirée at Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills


Escape with us on the main street of America, one of the most famous routes ending at the Pacific.  During this voyage des sens, let's halt not too far from New Mexico's white sands and excite our tastebuds in Albuquerque with the estate-grown méthode champenoise sparkling wine from Gruet winery located on some of the highest vineyards in the US.  Venturing through the different states we will explore the refreshing and inspirational image artwork of Olivier Pojzman available for sale during an exclusive silent auction.  Born in France, with a unique résumé including works for Yves Saint Laurent and Prince Albert de Monaco, Olivier has traveled to more than 30 countries and now resides in Venice Beach, CA.



Explore.  Learn.  Get Inspired.  Relax.  Mix & Mingle.

Join us by yourself or with friends for a premiere desert extravaganza.  Enjoy a glass of bubbly
from Gruet winery and indulge in gourmet bites -complimentary for the first hour- created by chef Mirko Paderno from Oliverio restaurant at Avalon Hotel.  Unveil a luxury boutique getaway part of the Viceroy hotel group, inspired by the relaxed patio lifestyle of mid-century Southern California, beautifully located in the heart of Beverly Hills.  An ideal gathering ambiance.

Keep the gourmet journey going and sign up to
an exclusive VIP experience with a Wine
Dinner Under The Stars at 8pm at Avalon Hotel at Oliverio restaurant.  Wine dinner detail here.

    I second both Diane's and Valerie's comments...perhaps a brief introduction by the host followed by a welcome toast to all participants might've sparked some mingling...

      Thank you Andrew for your feedback. I will keep this in mind. As i mentioned below the space was maybe too big for the group which probably explains there was less socializing compared to the other venues we used in the past. Have a great day!

    I did not think that the venue provided an environment for people to meet and mingle. And whoever was host did not seem to get around. Also, I never saw any appetizers being passed around and I was there the first hour. All in all, disappointing.

      I agree with Diane. Probably it would have been better if the host(s) mingled a little to get the participants talking to each other. If you weren;t standing by the door near the kitchen, you did not get appetizers. the last tray went around maybe at 7:40 (not 8).

    Will Olivier be there? I own three of his pieces and it'd be nice to say hi!

      I would love to, but I'm flying in from San Francisco to Burbank that day, and I don't think I'd get there in time to have the full amount of fun. Merci for asking, though!
