When the The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts opened a few weeks ago, most people weren’t thinking of food. After all, downtown Beverly Hills is filled with plenty of options for lunch, dinner, and drinks. But what if you want that little extra touch, a reserved space perfect for pre-theater dining, with the option to sleep over for the weekend after an exceptional show? Enter: The Montage Beverly Hills’ Wallis Supperclub, a 50-seat alcove restaurant.
Located in a small area adjacent to The Montage’s 10 Pound bar, and just above Scarpetta Beverly Hills, the new Wallis room caters specifically to theater goers. Only ticketholders may reserve seats for dinner, which is described as an “expeditiously timed service” of three-courses prepared by executive chef Gabriel Ask. The part we’d like to give a standing ovation? Each meal is themed to go along with that evening’s performance.
Starting next week, diners may reserve space for a Hungarian dinner in honor of “Parfumerie,” the first theater production at The Wallis. The romantic comedy is set in 1937 Budapest and follows a relationship built through love letters.
The Wallis Supperclub is now accepting reservations for pre-performance dining for the evenings of the show, December 5 through 7; 12 through 14, and 19 through 21. Dinner starts promptly at 6 p.m. The Montage offers free valet to Wallis Supperclub diners and free shuttle service to The Wallis Annenberg Center. Dinner is $115 per person, inclusive of tax, gratuity, valet, and transportation; reservations are required and can be made by calling 855-318-1059.
Tickets for “Parfumerie” ($49 – $129) are available for purchase in person at the Wallis Annenberg Center Box Office (9390 N. Santa Monica Blvd., Beverly Hills); by phone at 310-746-4000 or online at www.thewallis.org.
