THE PALM’S WALL OF FAME

The iconic West Hollywood location of the Palm Restaurant will close its doors on September 30. But the 40-year-old hot spot will only be taking a select few of the celebrity portraits, which famously covered the walls, to their new Beverly Hills location, opening in mid-November.

The original owners Pio Bozzi and John Ganzi introduced the creative décor idea in 1926 when they opened the first New York City location on Second Avenue. Local artists would decorate the walls with famous faces in exchange for meals and the tradition continued on as they expanded to 30 locations nationwide.

You can expect to see plenty of caricatures on the walls in the new space on opening day, and a few of them will even be transferred from the West Hollywood location. According to their website, each restaurant opens with approximately 200–300 likenesses always on the wall, and more are added on a regular basis.

And what’s happening to the rest of the portraits from the West Hollywood location? They couldn’t let them be demolished with the building. A selection of the portraits will be carved out and returned to the celebrity or their family members.

So in honor of the closure, take one last look at the caricatures, which portray celebs such as newlywed George Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Leonardo DiCaprio and so many more.
