S BAR

Developed by SBE CEO Sam Nazarian and Brent Bolthouse, the duo behind legendary hotspots Hyde Lounge and Area, S Bar is at the very forefront of the surging revitalization of the Hollywood neighborhood. S Bar’s interiors were conceived by Philippe Starck, with whom SBE has a multi-year exclusive for hotels, restaurants and nightclubs in North America, the Caribbean and Mexico. 

The ambience of S Bar evokes the urban, eclectic style of an artist’s warehouse gallery - featuring the sophisticated, signature elements of an SBE venue, including their renowned specialty cocktail program. By incorporating distinctive design with personalized service, a welcoming space, and a 2  laid-back atmosphere, S Bar is the ideal place for cocktails and socializing any night of the week, for any occasion. 

M. Starck, in collaboration with SBE Chief Creative Officer Theresa Fatino, has created a vibrant, bohemian-inspired environment for S Bar, featuring four large-scale photographic canvases depicting the grand spaces of Versailles. The photos, from French photographer Patrick Tourneboeuf’s award-winning “The Museum Project,” each blanket one entire wall of the S Bar space, creating a dramatic and expansive trompe l’oeil effect.
