    Living Room concerts at Greystone Mansion
    1 more image

    Originally the largest family estate in Beverly Hills, the grounds once covered 425 acres with a lake, brook and cascading waterfall. Today, it is a filming location and a center for cultural activities and events. Many movies, such as War and Rememberance and The Witches of Eastwick, have used Greystone as a set. You can enjoy a self-guided tour of the Formal Gardens, Mansion Gardens and Lower Grounds Estate.

    Greystone Mansion offers concerts in the setting of what was the former residence of the Beverly Hills Doheny family. Music in the Mansion performances are held in the unique and intimate setting of the historic Greystone Mansion's living room. Concerts, usually scheduled for early spring, begin at 1:30pm and are followed by a light reception and a first floor tour of the Mansion. A regular event for local Beverly Hills residents.
    Call (310) 285-2529 and (310) 550-4753 to purchase tickets.

    No smoking enforced by owners and patrons

    by icunme Updated Apr 21, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you smoke where it is prohibited you can expect not only the owner but other patrons to call your attention to the law - patrons will be polite - Beverly Hills residents will not.
    As is true throughout California, smoking is not permitted in restaurants, bars, theaters, auditoriums, museums, or most other public buildings.

    Dress Up Fashionably & Show Off- or not...

    by marinarena Written Oct 16, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not that there is a dress code for the city but especially along fashionable streets like Rodeo Dr or celeb-populated Robertson, you may want to don you best dress or outfit. Beverly Hills can be easily considered the place of keeping up stylish appearance. Name brand frocks are very desirable and shown off. That being said, there is still the California casualness in everyday wear here. Just to put a little advice out here, an outside tourist can mix in well in the crowd with some thought to putting the look together.
