We're bringing back the house party. And the first order of business: a kickass location. Nowhere in L.A. will you find an apartment building with more lore than Hancock Park's El Royale tower. This indie abode has housed some of Hollywood's most sought-after creatives — Mae West, Clark Gable, Uma Thurman, and Cameron Diaz have all called the Spanish castle home at one point or another. And stories of ghosts and scandals abound: An oil heiress once left the building in nothing but her panties and a feather boa, while another gutsy tenant was evicted for running a gambling ring out of the garage.

Spectacular views and ultra-glam art set the bewitching backdrops for an unforgettable evening of great convos and even better friends. Obviously, we snapped pics galore, so indulge your inner voyeur and take a gander at the good times had by all, in one of the most exceptional edifices in town.
