Whether you live in LA or are planning a trip to La La Land, a weekend brunch is bound to end up on your agenda. While there are plenty of places to hobnob with celebrities during an afternoon of snacking on soufflé and sipping champagne, the Jazz Brunch at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel may be the most sophisticated setting. Add it to the bucket list, y’all.

Beverly Hills Hotspot
A reservation at Sunday’s Jazz Brunch at The Polo Lounge means you’ll be sitting in a bougainvillea-covered courtyard surrounded by lush tropical greenery and listening to tunes that are reminiscent of another time and place. If you're thinking "serenity now," this place is absolutely bucket list worthy.
Steak frites, Maine lobster rolls, pan-seared tuna with veggies, and brioche French toast with roasted berries are just a few of the brunch menu highlights at the Polo Lounge. Toast to the (very) good life with your brunch comrades while sipping on a glass of bubbly or a blueberry-lavender fizz. Brunch at this hotspot includes a drink (say, a Moscow Mule), a starter (perhaps the snow crab Louie), a main (grilled chicken paillard, anyone?), and a dessert (definitely interested in the profiteroles, thanks!). Indulgent? Yes. Worth it? That too. Bucket list worthy? Absolutely.

In Good Company
Soak up all that good, calm Sunday energy, while also spotting the occasional celeb or two. The Polo Lounge is known to be the scene of many a Hollywood deal or hangout session. And if stargazing in LA is on your bucket list, make this lovely atmosphere the place to do it. In fact, book a room in one of the timeless suites or bungalows if you're all about that luxe life.
