New Bar Buzz: Stone Rose Lounge

— by Caroline on Crack

I keep hearing about how nightlife pioneer to the stars Rande Gerber (aka Mr. Cindy Crawford and Clooney’s bff) is opening up a West Coast location of his NYC Stone Rose Lounge sometime this month to coincide with the reopening of the Hotel Sofitel after its $40-million face-lift. But where is it?

All I know is that it’s 5,000 square feet of luxury lounge with an outdoor patio and the requisite VIP sections which, in this case, are concealed behind bookcases so that they’re ultraprivate. H’Well!

Since this is a Gerber creation, Stone Rose will most likely follow in the footsteps of its hot-spot predecessors SkyBar, Whiskey Blue at the W and The Whiskey Bar, burning super hot with exclusive A-list parties at first and eventually slowing down to a simmer of tourists and celebrity regulars since you have to be on a guest list or a hotel guest to get into his hotel bars.
