The Sowden House

I am truly the blogger's anti-blogger because I do so many things that I should report on my blog, but never take the incentive to actually do it. I was at a private party this Saturday held exclusively at the Sowden House in Hollywood (Los Feliz). The shot above is an ugly phone shot, but it was all I had. I left my actual camera in my car which was valeted (as usual). I must say that this place is TRULY AMAZING! Gorgeous and so awesome, lightly put. We had the most delicious hors d'oeuvres, followed by a definitely high class dinner where everything was so tasty and unique. The open bar at the kitchen was a plus. I simply cannot put in words how 'grandeur' this place is in style. What a fun filled, long lasting evening into the late night it was!

Interesting tidbits: This is a Lloyd Wright design (son of the famous Franklin Lloyd Wright). This is the house that the 'surgeon' from the famous L.A. Black Dahlia murder was linked to in the 30s. The son of the surgeon lived here at one time, who was a police officer who worked on the case. Not to mention this house has hidden rooms.

Google it as much as you want, or also you can read the wikipedia link: HERE.

Stuff like this is why I love Los Angeles and Southern California!


  1. Wow!!! That place is ridiculously amazing!

  2. I'm an anti-blogger too, alas. I still need to write about my first time at the horsetrack.

    But in the meantime, inquiring minds want to know: What was the event, and how did you get invited?

  3. It was a private family birthday. I do have pictures of us, but I don't really post directly personal stuff like that.

    We hung out with the owner as well. Well, I should say it's the owner's 'buddy' who was there while the actual owner was in Maui. LOL

  4. I'm impressed! To think that I have a friend who has family birthday parties at super-fancy mansions! We don't get much above Benihana in our family.

  5. interesting to discover a connection to the Black Dahlia. A friend of mine was introduced to a woman who went to school with Elizabeth Short back east. 7 degrees of separation at work
