The Sidebar Spotlight! You might spot Tom and Katie or Brad Pitt at this world famous hotel. Hollywood’s elite line up to get a spot at Cut in the Beverly Wilshire, but equally elegant and super for stargazing is The Sidebar. It’s the sophisticated buzzing space across the hall where spotting stars has always been simple. Here is a secret: make a reservation and earn points towards a free meal. Starting this month, in celebration of CUT’s fifth birthday, sommelier Dana Farner is hosting a series of informal wine-tasting events. Each will focus on wines from a different region of the world: July 11 – France, and July 25 – Austria. You can kick back in the popular plush lounge and feast on several new menus for a sweet price. From 5:30-7:30 pm and just $7 dollars a cocktail, you can sip on a well crafted creation or a glass of specially priced wine paired with tempting tapas. Try the Kobe beef sliders on brioche buns. They are a delicacy of succulent meat wrapped in buttery soft rolls. And, the ricotta stuffed squash blossoms are as beautiful as they are delicious.
