Suede Bar & Lounge
SUEDE Bar & Lounge, located at the world-renowned Westin Bonaventure, opened its doors in mid 2008 with much fanfare and hoopla. Several red carpet grand-opening parties with media coverage were hosted by owners Lillian Gastelum and Richard Valenzuela for Downtown LA business people, celebrities, and local politicians including a ribbon-cutting ceremony performed by the Mayor of LA, Antonio Villaraigosa.
Since its opening, the upscale ultra-lounge has become a popular hangout during happy hour for downtown professionals and used as an intimate venue for corporate/business parties, fundraising events, and birthday and private parties.
Suede is LA’s hottest and most popular Downtown venue for weekend party-goers looking for top DJ sounds, a cool vibe, and a good robust drink. A selection of appetizers, specialty drinks, fine wines, and a full premium bar are offered with discounts to VIP Exclusive Members.
Suede was showcased on the premier of “Chuck” on February 2009. Click here to see the coverage Suede received on Channel 9 and 2, during the 10:00 news on April 16. Suede Bar & Lounge also previewed on “Dine for a Dime” with Christina McLarty, on Channel 2.
