Friday Favorite Find: The Legendary Sportsmen's Lodge

This week we were invited to tour The Sportsmen's Lodge, a Los Angeles landmark that was a popular gathering spot for cast and crew in old Hollywood, including Clark Gable, Bette Davis, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn.  The property still remains a favorite in the San Fernando Valley because of it's charm, scenic backdrop and lush grounds. 

The newly renovated Event Center is located on the property and fit for weddings, social and corporate events.  The ballrooms are a vision of sleek modern white mixed with neutrals that still retain a historic charm.  There are ten different ballrooms that can accommodate any size gathering from intimate up to a 1,000 guests.  Each of the ballrooms have elegant chandeliers or light fixtures which create the perfect ambiance.  Eight of the ballrooms also have floor to ceiling windows, which offer spectacular views of the gardens with romantic bridges overlooking the legendary trout ponds.

Some great features provided by Sportsmen's Lodge Event Center:
  • Built-in bars, which create more space for guests
  • Built-in stages and dance floors for your entertainment needs
  • State-of-the-art audio, video and lighting systems
  • Two entrance options depending on the location of your event
  • Two outdoor ceremony options as well as an indoor ceremony location
  • The historic Sportsman's Lodge located on site to accommodate your sleeping rooms
  • Creative menu options that are uniquely presented, freshly prepared and will please even the most discerning palates.
