Wait, I can't understand the syntax here.. does Balazs also own Soho House? The closest I've been to Soho House is having extremely attractive female friends that get invited to it and then bail on our dinner plans >.<

Also, I'm going to LA in August and would like to spend a night at Marmont but their website only has a phone number (no online booking) and I'm too afraid to call and ask.

LOL I was going to say "only losers go to the Marmont all the action is at the Montage now" but apparently it has traded hands four times since the last time I was there and was owned by Jho Low at one point?

    Low allegedly purchased a US$325,000 white Ferrari as a wedding gift for Kim Kardashian in 2011.[42][43] The Department of Justice (DoJ) was reported to have sought restitution from other famous celebrities who had received gifts from Low, among them Leonardo DiCaprio, who has since returned Picasso and Basquiat paintings; and Miranda Kerr who returned diamond jewellery with a market value of US$8 million.[43][44][45]

Thank you for making my day.

Jordan Belfort apparently described the Wolf of Wall Street gala as "over the top." Which is saying something about the guy Wolf of Wall Street is about
