Dine In Style At The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood

If you’re looking to pamper yourself, impress a date, or have a gorgeous backdrop for your next get-together, the newly-opened Godfrey Hotel Hollywood is ready to set the stage for your next great memory. Located a block south of Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood enclave, The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood brings the distinct Chicago hospitality brand to the West Coast.

Exuding the energy of old Hollywood, the hotel’s curated art program and immersive interior design has made it our new favorite Hollywood destination. The iconic hotel features 220 guestrooms, one of the largest rooftops in Los Angeles – IO ROOFTOP, various indoor-outdoor event spaces and ALK, an energetic restaurant on the lobby level.

About Last Knife, or ALK, is helmed by Chef Steven Blackburn and features a New American menu with plenty of plant-based options that center the best in local produce. Easily found right off of the lobby, this SoCal-centric restaurant and bar offers a casual fine dining experience.

Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, ALK should be at the top of your list of the best LA restaurants to try. The menu is a delight to consider, shining a light on fresh local ingredients, sustainably-sourced  meats, premium fresh-caught  fish and an impressively wide selection of plant-based and vegan options.

“At ALK the menu is always rotating.  Not just for every season but every month.  My team and I like to showcase our versatility and creativity to create approachable yet innovated dishes where the flavor is key.”

Utilizing California’s bright and fresh seasonal produce, ALK’s offerings are best described as New American cuisine, which means you’ll find something for all tastes on it’s menu. Serving good vibes along with good food, the retro-chic aesthetic of ALK is inspired by Hollywood’s historic past and present. The carefully decorated space encourages a social and vibrant ambiance, making it an ideal spot for a memorable meal.

The dining style is casual fine-dining, and should you want to match the spare, its color palettes include smoky green and blush pink juxtaposed with black-and-white finishes, along with design statements such as a large draping pearl necklace hanging from the ceiling.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable. For parties of 9 or more contact ALK@godfreyhotelhollywood.com. For parties 12 or more please contact events@godfreyhotelhollywood.com.

ALK is also available for buyouts for up to 120 people (60 seated). For more information on private events, click here.

Possibly our most-treasured new hot spot is The Godfrey Hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge. Called IO ROOFTOP, it is the largest rooftop space in Hollywood, and on our shortlist of the coolest rooftop dining experiences in LA. You can find it by making your way to the roof – or seventh floor – of The Godfrey. You’ll know you’re there when you stop in awe to take in the breathtaking views of Hollywood’s most iconic landmarks.

Recalling the glamour and beauty of Hollywood, this space is undeniably magical. Described as “a sophisticated oasis in the middle of LA buzz,” guest of IO are invited to relax at the pool, enjoying sunshine, soothing music and a tropical cocktail by day, which turns into dancing, live music and art shows and a craft cocktail by night.

IO ROOFTOP offers 12,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space featuring a beautifully appointed sun-deck, two bars, shimmering pool, 70-foot projection mapping video wall, fire pits and al-fresco dining. Chef Steven Blackburn offers an inventive take on familiar favorites, emphasizing the best local produce to appeal to omnivores and herbivores alike.

“IO has a fun offering of creative flavorful dishes like yakitori skewers or our chicken katsu sliders.  We recently started a sushi program stationed at the inside bar which is going extremely well.  Nothing beats a Hollywood sunset with fresh sushi and a beautiful cocktail!”

Reservations can be made on OpenTable. For parties of 9 or more contact IO@godfreyhotelhollywood.com. For parties 16 or more please contact events@godfreyhotelhollywood.com.

You can find ALK and I|O at The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, located at 1400 Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. For more information about The Godfrey’s food and beverage options, as well as details about the hotel and how to make room reservations, visit thgodfreyhotelhollywood.com.
