In case you were worried that flamboyant nightclub creator Sam Nazarian wasn't going to go sufficiently over the top putting together his new SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, rest assured. He did. The man who built paparazzi-patrolled clubs such as Hyde Lounge and Area couldn't very well open up an inoffensively beige hotel catering to corporate conventioneers. Nor could he conform to the smooth lines and stately bearing of traditional five-star inns.

Sam Nazarian has sealed his reputation as Los Angeles' King of the Night. SBE, his Los Angeles hospitality group, which owns the Bazaar by Jose Andres, Hyde Lounge, Gladstone's and the Redbury and SLS hotels, has acquired its largest Los Angeles night-life competitor. The purchase of privately held Syndicate Hospitality nearly doubles SBE's night-life holdings, making Nazarian the most powerful operator of clubs on the West Coast, with 12 venues. Nazarian adds MyStudio, MyHouse, Eden and Crimson/Opera, all based in Hollywood, to a portfolio that includes popular venues such as the Colony, Industry and the Abbey.

A giant silver teapot covered in glittering silver Bisazza tile sets the whimsical tone for the Bazaar at the new SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Oh, my. What to make of this extravagantly weird and wonderful playroom that seems to take up the entire ground floor of the hotel?

Olives that flood your mouth with flavor. A foie gras lollipop wrapped in cotton candy. The definitive shrimp with garlic. Innocent-looking bites that shoot smoke out of your nostrils. How to describe the experience at the Bazaar by José Andrés in the new SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills? Fellini-esque, a gastronomical circus, a flirtation with the flavors and soul of Spain? Los Angeles has never seen anything remotely like this exciting restaurant from Spanish chef Jose Andres.
