7969 Santa Monica Boulevard
Delilah is the newest name to be added to The h.wood Group’s impressive roster of celebrity hot spots — Bootsy Bellows, Blind Dragon and The Nice Guy to name a few. Channeling the ‘Roaring Twenties’ with dazzling chandeliers, lavish textures in the plush seating and tiled fireplace, and wood and gold touches for a lick of modernity, its no wonder LA’s most glamorous are drawn to this handsome haunt.
Specialty cocktails — that show utmost mixology mastery — beg those who get in to sip on drinks such as ‘The Pink Pussycat’ or the ‘Loca Loni’ (banana and spice-infused Herradura, Tuaca, tawny port, Frangelico, tea pot bitters and served on a rock with flamed cinnamon stick and banana chips). Each is as spectacular as the rest.
On the food side of things is an amalgamation of classic and modern American cuisines, influenced by the era’s ever popular ‘soulful food’ trend. Following dinner service, guests ready to light it up can settle in to enjoy lounge-style bottle service and live entertainment to boot.
