Venue Features
The Scene:
Located in the heart of West Hollywood's Design District on the iconic Melrose Avenue, Gracias Madre boasts an expansive outdoor patio with century old olive trees, fireplace and striking design features perfect for trend-setting social media updates. The ambience of this clean yet rustic celebrity favorite is subtle yet vibrant, creating a comfortable atmosphere for intimate conversation or large celebrations. On any day of the week you might find Tobey McGuire sipping a margarita on the patio incognito, Hollywood Execs eating housemade tortilla chips and guacamole at the bar, or Beyonce evading the harsh snaps of the paparazzi. No matter how big or small the name, everyone receives "un luger en la mesa del amor."
Design:
Inside this former antique emporium, you will find whitewashed brick and high ceilings with exposed beams and plenty of natural light. Bold patterned tile and reclaimed wood floors and furniture complete this sophisticated, rustic ambience. Outside on the patio, natural red brick and plethora of organic greenery and create a beautiful hideaway in the center of this bustling urban neighborhood. At night, string lights and a central fireplace illuminate the lush patio, creating a magical evening getaway.
Standout Venue Features:
Gracias Madre serves 100% organic, farm fresh, locally sourced food inspired by some of the recipes of the communities we serve. Executive Chef Chandra Gilbert brings bold flavors, seasonally-conscious ingredients and unique flare to their plant-based take on Mexican classics. Gracias Madre's whimsical agave-based beverage program is spreaheaded by the award winning beverage director, Jason Eisner.
