It was the Roaring twenites, the Gold Coast Era of the opulent Santa Monica Beach Clubs - and one name dominated the social scene: Club Casa Del Mar. True to a storied past, the Grande Dame of Santa Monica reopens her doors in 1999, reviving a reputation as one of the most luxurious hotels on the southern California coast. The Italian Renaissance revival structure, restored to its original state, fronts an expansive beach with sweeping views of the ocean. The seascape is on display throughout - in the elegant guestrooms, suites, and penthouses. The lobby and restaurant, the magnificent ballroom, Loggias, the pool and garden terrace. The vistas on land - most notably the fabled Santa Monica Pier - are equally entrancing. Only minutes away are other earthly delights from fine restaurants to noted shops and art galleries. Once the place to see and be seen, the original Casa Del Mar set the style for fun by day and glamour by night. The new Casa Del Mar brings back those memorable days.
