The House of Music and Entertainment, or H.O.M.E., brings the New York jazz supper club vibe to Beverly Hills, the LA Weekly reported.
H.O.M.E. opened in November and has featured some of L.A.'s top musicians. Pete Escovedo, John Beasley, Sandra Booker, Bill Cunliffe, Danny Janklow, Louie Cruz Beltran, Clayton Cameron and John Pisano are just of few of the jazz talent that have hit H.O.M.E.'s stage.
According to the Weekly:
[Club owner Denns "D.Anthony" Robertson] spent a considerable sum remodeling the restaurant with an upscale clientèle in mind: Padded seating, white linen and crystal. It boasts over 250 seats with a small bar area towards the back, putting it on a par with Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, and around 100 seats larger than Herb and Eden Alpert's Vibrato in Bel Air, the two long-time L.A. jazz venues Robertson sees himself in closest competition with.
Robertson describes his approach as "combination of an intimate concert setting and true fine dining," which he believes L.A. lacks. They've recruited former Perch and Geoffrey's of Malibu Executive Chef Shawn Davis to design a menu with entrees ranging from sea bass and caviar-chive salmon to rack of lamb.
They've also taken on experienced, full-time, sound engineers, a rarity at area jazz venues. The club recently acquired a Yamaha Concert series piano, which is more than seven feet long and rivals any found around here, short of the twin Steinways at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro.
H.O.M.E. is located at 430 N. Camden Drive, 310-271-4663. Reservations can be made online.
