Warby Parker Checks In

The Standard, Hollywood toasted the opening of Warby Parker's first West Coast retail store with a fun-filled bash. It was quite the spectacle!
Aug 18 2013

Last Thursday everyone’s favorite eyewear company, Warby Parker, celebrated the launch of their first West coast retail store located in the lobby of The Standard, Hollywood.

Keys to the mini-bar were handed out

CHECK IN: Upon entering The Standard, Hollywood guests were directed into the Warby Parker store where they were encouraged to try on their favorite frames whilst listening to live acoustic performances by Sophie Auster. While at the store, party patrons were “checked-in” and given keys to room 122.

RUMPLED SHEETS & MINIBAR DELIGHTS: In Room 122, guests were invited to raid the mini-bar! They found a room fully stocked with mini-bar essential including M&M’s, Oreos, licorice whips, and, most importantly, mini-bar bottles of booze and mixers. While everyone was living out their mini-bar fantasies, they were also treated to live in-room acoustic performances by Goldspot’s Sidd Kholsa.

Goldspot’s Sidd Kholsa. Who knew that our hotel room bathrooms had such great acoustics?

DRINKS BY THE POOL: Satiated on mini-bar snacks, guests then made their way onto the Pooldeck were they were entertained by the lovely ladies of Aqualillies, a synchronized swimming troupe, and a fantastic performance by Cillie Barnes.
