By Suzi Battaile

Formally known as the Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows has welcomed celebrities to take in the Old Hollywood charm. Even Hollywood has come calling to film unforgettable movies, like Top Gun’s “You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling” bar scene, in our exquisite 15,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces. Playful and fun, unique and historic, there’s no better place to make your escape.
