The Beverly Hills Hotel opened in 1912, and the iconic property is devoting this year to celebrating its 110th birthday. Among the festivities are anniversary libations named after celebrities of yesteryear, including the Mary Pickford, the Rat Pack, and Elizabeth’s Chocolate Martini (as in Elizabeth Taylor, of course, who was a frequent guest), and a poolside summer movie series (“Troop Beverly Hills” and “Beverly Hills Cop” will be among the films shown). Guests will also be able to order a $1,912 upgrade to the hotel’s celebrated McCarthy salad: The signature dish will be garnished with gold leaf flakes, lobster, and caviar; paired with a bottle of Dom Pérignon; and served in a commemorative bowl made by Bernardaud that guests can bring home.
