Cutting-Edge Wedding Venues For The Non-Traditional BrideBy: Brittany Nicole La Hue
The Washington Post reports that 33% of engagements happen between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
This week, we’re focusing on the West Hollywood establishments that you wouldn’t expect to host weddings, so that you can create the most unique experience possible for your special day. Our previous wedding blog focused on WeHo’s elegant hotels and their rooftop pool decks and banquet halls as great venues for weddings. If you’ve decided that those venues are too traditional and expected, not to worry!
Read below for ideas on rockstar, artsy and nature-inspired weddings!
9009 Sunset Boulevard West Hollywood, CA
The Roxy Theatre on Sunset Boulevard was one of the birthplaces of the modern rock ‘n’ roll scene – and it’s still the go-to venue for both established and emerging artists. A little-known fact about the Roxy, however, is that a small, private key-access club that once hosted Hollywood’s elite musicians, movie stars and celebrities is located right above the Roxy. On The Rox is now a VIP lounge that hosts musical performances, parties, after-parties and private events, complete with its own bar, dance floor and lounge area. Best of all, guests enter through a side door and staircase to remain separate from The Roxy Theatre’s happenings downstairs.
If you want an exclusive, intimate wedding or reception area (up to 75 people), with a rock ‘n’ roll flavor, email VIP@theroxy.com to find out more information about booking On The Rox.
