About This Week’s Prize Package
“The Standard Isn’t,” according to Conde Nast Traveller, and we couldn’t have put it better ourselves. With a blue Astro-Turf pool deck, 24-hour restaurant, floor to ceiling shag carpeted lobby lounge, and the intimate Cactus Lounge, you’ll be entertained even when you’re staying in. With a convenient location right on The Sunset Strip, you won’t have to stumble far to bed after a great night out at one of West Hollywood’s legendary music venues, like The Roxy Theatre, The Whisky a Go Go, Key Club, Viper Room, House of Blues Sunset Strip and Troubadour over on Santa Monica Boulevard.
But at The Standard Hollywood, you don’t even have to leave the hotel to have a fabulous music experience. Every Wednesday night, the hotel hosts Desert Nights in the Cactus Lounge, a fun and free event which features KCRW’s DJ Valida and three acoustic musical acts. The Standard Hollywood is designed for both the young and the young-at-heart who appreciate quirky and modern design and function.
Even if by now you’re just young-at-heart, you still don’t have to surrender to The Man just yet – at least not when it comes to your wardrobe. Menswear designer John Varvatos seamlessly blends modern textiles and a rock’n’roll flair with sleek lines and refined tailoring. With thin button-downs, suits, leather coats, soft scarves, women’s accessories and more, you’ll be decked out like the stars. Varvatos fans Jeremy Piven, Jimmy Kimmel, Zac Efron, and rapper Common have all been caught donning the label. If your style is more casual and classic, the Varvatos Converse collection will hook you up with reinterpretations of the Chuck Taylor All Star and Jack Purcell shoes.
Also, don’t forget about our $5,000 Grand Prize song contest! If you love WeHo, serenade the city with an original song inspired by West Hollywood (and featuring it in the lyrics). Record your song and upload it to our Facebook contest page HERE.
The $5,000 Ultimate Rockstar Getaway prize package includes roundtrip airfare, four nights at the Sunset Marquis hotel, VIP access to the Sunset Strip Music Festival, tickets to the Hollywood Bowl and Greek Theater, a rockstar makeover, a VIP tour of Los Angeles and $1,000 spending cash. So bust out that guitar, microphone, banjo, anything… and we’ll see you on The Strip in August!
