Over the holiday weekend, over 100 Bay Area Elites and their guests made the trip down to Carmel for our first (and certainly not our last!) event in this quaint, seaside town. It was an unseasonably sunny and warm Sunday in January and our gracious host, La Playa Hotel, treated us to an afternoon of locally sourced food, wine, and entertainment. Read the glowing 5-star reviews from attendees and live vicariously through the event photos.
La Playa Hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea has a rich, colorful and romantic history. What is now the main entrance of La Playa Carmel is the building that once stood as a luxurious mansion, designed in 1905 by artist Christian Jorgensen as a gift for his wife, a member of the Ghirardelli family. Nestled atop a tree-lined bluff, the site looks out across the Pacific Ocean and its rugged coastline with Cypress trees and Pines. Romantic and breathtaking, this view has captivated artists, as well as owners of the property throughout its long history.
