Famous for its old Hollywood glamour and laid-back atmosphere, the venerable hotel – which first opened its doors in 1927 – regularly draws A-listers such as Scarlett Johansson and Robert Pattinson for lunch or dinner on its palm tree-ringed patio. Inside, overstuffed couches crowd the "living room" where even the biggest stars feel like they are among (famous) friends.

Lady Gaga isn't exactly known for being quiet.
But on Wednesday, the singer had a low-key evening with two female friends at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.
With two tables full of bodyguards sitting behind her, Gaga looked "quite tired and somber" throughout the evening, an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was talking low and leaning into her friends. She didn't laugh or smile the entire time, just straight-faced chatting and sipping on some wine."
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro were on hand to celebrate their film Silver Linings Playbook at the Weinstein Company's special event at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Friday.
At the candle-lit dinner party, De Niro enjoyed a Purity Vodka martini, while Cooper posed for photos with Zoe Saldana. De Niro spent part of the night talking with Mel Gibson and Jane Fonda, who were also in attendance.
With his Twilight duties behind him, Robert Pattinson enjoyed a night out with a male pal on Tuesday. The two met up at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont, where Pattinson grabbed a table and sipped on a Stella.
Not long after their arrival, though, the men were joined by a group of friends – including singer M.I.A., who capped off her signature eclectic look with an oversized hat.
Pattinson, in a jacket (but not his usual baseball cap), "looked happy and relaxed," a source tells PEOPLE. Though he frequently left his pals for breaks on the smoking patio, "he only paid attention to his guy friends, laughing and letting loose a little bit," the source continues. After about an hour, the whole party said goodbye and left the venue. – Jennifer Garcia

Bar Marmont was transformed to Paris for the evening with a Moulin Rouge-themed bash.
Moore was spotted carefully listening to Sitton as he discussed the winemaking process. Moore even took a moment from learning about wine to sympathize with a fellow party guest who was wearing a knee brace, expressing concern for her injury. After the event, Moore was spotted sitting across from ex-boyfriend, Zach Braff, at the garden at Chateau Marmont.
Also sampling the new wine blend: Eva Amurri Martino, who talked about missing her sports commentator husband Kyle Martino, who was out of town.
