Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Polo Lounge

Ever rarefied and refined, it’s been the ultimate icon of Old Hollywood glamour, elegance, and privilege since its debut at the ‘Pink Palace’ in 1937 – the name came four years later as it was the favourite post-polo party spot for a West Coast Algonquin crew including Spencer Tracy, Will Rogers, and Daryl Zanuck. The lavish lounge is past its heyday as the power-dining spot (alas, the famed banquette-side telephones vanished when cellular technology eliminated their necessity for instant deal-making) but still draws an über-mover-and-shaker crowd of industry giants, corporate titans, sports legends, music idols, vacationing royals, and the occasional high-class escort. And if the scene gets a little too old school for your tastes, trot across the lobby to the newer 1912 bar, which skews to a younger breed of power player.
