As you are out looking for your next spot for a drink or a bite to eat, why not take in a bit of Hollywood history while you are at it? The Dresden has been a Hollywood landmark for more than 60 years, and you can head there any time for food, drink and some movie history.
The Dresden has been seen in many films over the years, most notably “That Thing You Do” and, of course, “Swingers.” Recreate one of the best scenes in the movie and join some friends for a few rounds of drinks here. The atmosphere is so retro that it’s modern, with the same fixtures and same décor that helped make the Dresden a favorite for more than six decades. Make sure to visit on a Tuesday through Saturday night to catch resident talent Marty and Elayne, the famous duo that has been singing the hits here since 1982. You’ll catch Marty on the drums or bass and Elayne on piano, synth or possibly even flute, as the famous pair sings hit after hit.
When it comes to the food, it’s classic fare all the way. From their famous prime rib to the veal marsala, chicken piccata or rack of lamb, it’s completely traditional and quite affordable. Be sure to take a moment to peruse the wall of photos, featuring all the many big names that have been seen at the Dresden. After all, this hip spot has been one of the most important places to see and be seen in Hollywood for many years.
A trip to The Dresden is made complete when you show up in your 2013 GLK350 SUV from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll love showing up in style, traveling in elegance and enjoying the pure luxury of the Mercedes-Benz name. Plus you’ll have plenty of room for several friends as you head out to recreate your favorite famous movie moments.
