If there was ever a restaurant that was much better than it needed it to be, it is Beauty & Essex, a glorious new dining hall in heart of Hollywood from the TAO Group.

A gigantic 10,000 square foot complex that encapsulates the best aspects of its Lower East Side original (with the grandeur of its second Las Vegas outlet). Up front, a real-live collector’s shop with pricey jewelry and musical instruments that acts as a kind of trompe l’oeil entrance that opens up into various lounges and dining rooms.

Equipped with a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, along with wall-to-wall LED screens and a retractable roof in the garden space, guests are swept away for an unforgettable night. If you order a bottle, with selections from Belair and Verve for collections at the bar, the clock above the bar will open to reveal a statue

And when you get hungry, just pop over to Alvin Cailan’s pizza joint, Luchini, for slices and more. Tao, Avenue, and rooftop pool bar The Highlight Room join Beauty & Essex for a NYC-style free for all in Hollywood.
