Sep 29 - Cocktails in Historic Places® at the HMS Bounty in Koreatown

09/29/2017 6:00 pm
America/Los Angeles

Please join the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles for Cocktails in Historic Places® from 6 to 9 pm Friday, September 29th at the HMS Bounty, 3357 Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown.

The HMS Bounty is located on the ground floor of the landmark Gaylord apartment building, which was designed by the illustrious architecture firm of Walker & Eisen in 1924 and named after the boulevard’s developer, Henry Gaylord Wilshire. Adorned with one of the city’s first neon signs, the thirteen-story Italian Renaissance Revival housed such notable tenants as Constance Talmadge, John Barrymore, and Richard Nixon.

The Gaylord’s bar/restaurant space has gone through a number of incarnations over the years. Early on, it was the Gay Room, then the Secret Harbor, then the Golden Anchor. In 1962, it was relaunched as the HMS Bounty, and has been sailing full steam ahead ever since.

The nautical-themed venue offers a menu of classic pub food and drinks, with happy hour specials between 5:30 and 9 pm.

Parking in the neighborhood can be a challenge, but there are several pay lots in the vicinity; consult Parkopedia for location and hours of the closest lots. There are also two Metro stations (Wilshire/Vermont and Wilshire/Western) within walking distance.

Cocktails in Historic Places® is open to members and non-members alike and reservations are not required, but an RSVP on the Facebook page helps us get a head count (and generates an event reminder). Come straight from work, or slip into something more Deco—either way, come join us.
