LOS ANGELES Once the Montmarte Café in Hollywood, Marbella had its soft opening earlier this month as a giant new Spanish-influenced nightclub. The tapas restaurant portion of the space is expected to open later in September, likely with the grand opening of the entire venue.
The space offers a 4,000-square-foot patio with wrought-iron accents, the interior decor is meant to invoke both Spain and the '20s. Touches include curtained cabanas, greenery, brick ceilings, a dance floor illuminated with LEDs, and private booths.
The entire space holds 900 and is available for buyouts. Marbella has already hosted a Bebe fashion show, a wrap party for So You Think You Can Dance, and a wine tasting for the contestants from The Bachelorette.
