Yamashiro, Hollywood

05-05-2011

Yamashiro opened 88 years ago. The name "Yamashiro" means "Mountain Palace" in Japanese, and that says a lot about this establishment. It was originally designed to house the extensive collection of Asian art amassed by the Bernheimer brothers. Their dream became reality in 1914 when Yamashiro was officially inaugurated. After the death of one of the Bernheimer brothers, the collection was auctioned off and it is no longer available for viewing. 


In 1922 the artwork was replaced by the 400 club, the very first hangout Golden Age stars. The building was almost torn down during WW2, but was saved by Thomas O. Glover who decided to restore it to its former glory rather than to tear it down. For the past 30 years, Yamashiro has been used as a high-end Japanese restaurant. The views on Los Angeles are breathtaking and you can enjoy them while savouring the most delicious Japanese delicacies.


I was there at the weekend for my last night in Los Angeles and experience a truly magical moment. Sitting with a table full of friends, eating amazing food, drinking very refined cocktails - I was transported to the days of the 400 club.
