Yamashiro Hollywood

Yamashiro Hollywood

Yamashiro – translated to “mountain palace” – broke ground in 1911 and was completed in 1914 as a residence for the Bernheimer brothers.

Housing a priceless collection of Asian treasures, the building was designed as a replica of a palace located in the mountains near Kyoto, Japan.

During the “Golden Age” of Hollywood, Yamashiro served as the ultra-exclusive hang-out for the “Club of the Four Hundred”: the era’s most famous and influential stars and movie moguls. The structure and its grounds served as a boy’s military school and later apartments before being acquired in 1948 by the Thomas O. Glover, who – with his son, Thomas Y. Glover – discovered the beauty beneath the disrepair and refurbished the space. The restaurant is still owned and operated by Thomas Y. Glover. Over 60 years later, Yamashiro continues to flourish as an Asian-inspired Los Angeles institution.

Perhaps the most romantic venue in Southern California, Yamashiro’s unique ambiance of Japanese-inspired tranquility and unparalleled views offer guests a place of serenity high above Los Angeles.

Executive chef Brock Kleweno leads a dynamic culinary team in creating Asian-inspired Californian fare.
