Venue spotlight: Oviatt Penthouse, Los Angeles

Coined by the venue as 'an art deco castle in the sky' the Oviatt Penthouse oozes class and elegance from a time when opulence and indulgence was a way of life. The location offers one of a kind views and a unique ambiance; located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, your guests will be able to dance the night away with the skyline of high rises and lights from the city as their backdrop. The building is of significant historic interest as well, as the website explains; 'The Penthouse was designed by some of the most distinguished architects and artisans of the Jazz Age. It was built for James Oviatt, a haberdasher whose luxurious shop once occupied the ground floor of his namesake building. Oviatt’s ambition was to create a spectacular residence that would showcase the Art Deco design he’d admired at the 1925 Exposition in Paris.' I think he more than succeeded- it certainly is specatcular! Here are a few photos from the venue's website (be sure to check it out for more details):
