Dairies at the ready, as this is one special residency you don’t want to miss. This summer, famed Los Angeles restaurant the Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel will pop up at The Dorchester Rooftop, bringing a taste of California to the capital.

The Polo Lounge at The Dorchester Rooftop: The Lowdown

With views across Hyde Park, The Dorchester Rooftop will be transformed to the Polo Lounge with its iconic décor including candy-stripes and pink bougainvillaea flowers. Throughout July and August, the al fresco restaurant and lounge will be open daily for lunch and dinner for guests to sample the restaurant’s classic dishes including the famed McCarthy Salad (we can confirm it’s sublime).

Known as the epicentre of LA power dining, the Polo Lounge has been the favourite spot for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. The first time ever that the restaurant has held a pop-up, the Polo Lounge at The Dorchester Rooftop will bring guests a taste of Tinsel Town with a live band and DJ in partnership with Yamaha Music London & Molto Music Group.

The Polo Lounge at The Dorchester Rooftop: The Menu

The Polo Lounge’s most popular signature dish is the McCarthy Salad, a chopped salad unlike any other named in honour of polo player Neil McCarthy who used to frequent The Beverly Hills Hotel in the 1960’s. Nearly 600 McCarthy salads are sold at The Beverly Hills Hotel restaurants and through in-room dining each week. Guests can also sample Polo Lounge classic cocktails including the Prickly Paloma, a cocktail of Tequila, Prickly Pear Grapefruit, Lime and Pink Salt.
