The DNA: Although technically in Los Angeles (on West 3rd Street), the Palihouse West Hollywood is a replacement for the first Palihouse on Holloway Drive (within the city boundaries of West Hollywood), which is now part of the Soho House group. The former nondescript 1980s hotel has gotten a major overhaul in Palisociety’s signature quirky-meets-traditional European-influenced design aesthetic: from the wood-paneling and green-and-white tiled flooring to floral wallpaper on the ceiling and the two ceramic Great Danes flanking the reception room. The hotel’s generously sized guest rooms are decorated in rust, terra cotta and deep green hues — are generously sized, from 330 to 660 square feet. Some are suites; many have balconies. And each room is kitted out with retro-chic Smeg mini fridges. There are two dining spots: the all-day Lobby Lounge Café & Bar featuring an outdoor patio and serving up Caesar and Cobb salads, lobster tacos, and chicken paillard, and Mezzanine Sushi, a sake bar and destination for hand rolls, nigiri and pressed sushi.
