This summer, famed Los Angeles restaurant the Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel will pop-up at The Dorchester Rooftop, bringing a taste of California to London.

With views across Hyde Park, The Dorchester Rooftop will be transformed to the Polo Lounge with its iconic décor including candy-stripes and pink bougainvillea flowers. Throughout July and August, the al fresco restaurant and lounge will be open daily for lunch and dinner for guests to sample the restaurant’s classic dishes including the famed McCarthy Salad.

Known as the epicentre of LA power dining, the Polo Lounge has been the favourite spot for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. The first time ever that the restaurant has held a pop-up, the Polo Lounge at The Dorchester Rooftop will bring guests a taste of Tinsel Town with a live band and DJ in partnership with Yamaha Music London & Molto Music Group.

The Polo Lounge’s most popular signature dish is the McCarthy Salad, a chopped salad named  in honour of polo player Neil McCarthy who used to frequent The Beverly Hills Hotel in the 1960s. Nearly 600  McCarthy salads are sold at The Beverly Hills Hotel restaurants and through in-room dining each week. Guests can also sample Polo Lounge classic cocktails including the Prickly Paloma, a cocktail of tequila, prickly pear grapefruit, lime and pink salt.

The Beverly Hills Hotel’s iconic banana leaf wallpaper will line the entrance of the rooftop, allowing guests to step into LA from the moment they enter via the private lift to the 9th floor. Meanwhile on The Dorchester’s forecourt, guests visiting the hotel will feel like a movie star as they pull up to a red carpet ready for a VIP arrival. Perched on the forecourt, the California theme continues at The Dorchester Terrace & Garden with canopy seating, a menu inspired by the West Coast with vibrant cocktails to match and an ice cream stand.
