THE MAYBOURNE BEVERLY HILLS’ luxe spa is the largest in L.A.


When The Maybourne Hotel Group, which owns properties like Claridge’s, The Connaught, and The Berkeley, opened its first stateside location in 2020, The Maybourne Beverly Hills, it instantly fit into the neighborhood. After snapping up artwork by blue-chip California artists for an evolving collection (think Alex Israel, Kort Havens, Jennifer Guidi, and Ed Ruscha), it did a soup-to-nuts redesign with Bryan O’Sullivan and established some strategic partnerships (hello, Goop!). Now the property has teamed up with German beauty guru Dr. Barbara Sturm, who has curated an exclusive facial menu for the ultra-luxurious spa — which is also the largest in the city, spanning 20,000 sq. ft. across two floors. This summer, the hotel also welcomed New York’s iconic bar Dante, which has set up shop on the indoor–outdoor rooftop terrace.


Its signature drink is a “fluffy” Garibaldi


Grab a drink at rooftop bar DANTE.


A stunning floral ceiling mural by Los Angeles–based artist Abel Macias floating above Dante’s newly minted dining room, open for lunch and dinner, sets the stage for famous aperitivo-style cocktails (think negronis, spritzes, and martinis) and an exclusive assortment of agave-forward concoctions. Drinks are perfectly paired with a range of classic Italian- and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, many of which arrive straight from the wood-fired oven. The bar’s signature drink is the Garibaldi, a classic Italian aperitivo made of “fluffy” orange juice with Campari. Garibaldi is also the name of California’s state fish: a fiery orange creature that roams the dark reefs and kelp forests just off the coast. Coincidence? We think not. 225 N.
