to my to do list
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.

After paying tribute to salsa queen Celia Cruz and tearing it up "On the Floor" at the AMAs Sunday night, Jennifer Lopez continued to party well into the night.
Lopez attended an after party at Chateau Marmont hosted by the owners of DSquared.
The American Idol judge, whose Kohls campaign (#getjenniferthere) and knockout performance made her the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, wore a black DSquared dress designed by the fashion house's twin brothers, Dean and Dan.
While DJ Big Syphe spun tunes, Lopez, 44, spent the night dancing with boyfriend Beau "Casper" Smart and stunning BFF Leah Remini, with whom she shared a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.
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

Lindsay Lohan spent a night out at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood on Thursday, just a day after an altercation with her mother, Dina, sent police to the family's Long Island home.

Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale stepped out with Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood on Saturday night.
Arriving around 10:45 p.m. Hale – wearing a short white dress – and Haynes spent their evening with a big group of friends, who looked happy to be together.
"They were both in a great mood and enjoying the company," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Hale sipped on a glass of white wine as she excitedly chatted with a blonde female friend. Meanwhile, Haynes and friends ordered and shared several desserts just before midnight.
Now that's how you un-wine (get it?).
Mandy Moore attended the launch of Clos du Bois Rouge, a new red wine blend from Clos du Bois winemaker, Gary Sitton, at the Chateau Marmont Wednesday night.
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. She was overheard saying that "absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder," according to an onlooker, who added that she said she "misses him and counts down the days until he returns."
