Paley. California cuisine in a legendary location.

Paley. is located in Columbia Square, the birthplace of the Golden Age of Hollywood. During its heyday, the restaurant at Columbia Square was home to the celebrities, executives and others working in the area. Paley. reimagines that creative culture for the modern age.

Owned and operated by worldwide hospitality group Plan Do See, Paley. is named in celebration of the artistic and innovative era shaped by CBS CEO and visionary William S. Paley and his glamorous wife, Babe.

The Plan Do See culinary team serves a dynamic menu of seasonal and local ingredients in classic dishes with a modern twist – a nod to the inspiration behind the restaurant itself, and brings their signature Japanese principle of Omotenashi -selfless service with a spirit of warmth and respect- to California.

Columbia Square

Paley. is in the heart of one of Hollywood’s most legendary locations, at the corner of Sunset and Gower. In 1911, the space was home to the first Hollywood-based film production company, Nestor Studios.

Beginning in 1938, when CBS Studios commissioned the building of Columbia Square, the world tuned-in, which they would for decades, to hear and, eventually see, broadcasts and recordings from stars including Bob Hope, Cecile B. DeMille, Lucille Ball, Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand.

With the opening of Columbia Square, William S. Paley, chief of the Columbia Broadcasting System, had ushered in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Paley. strives to reintroduce the glamour and excitement of Hollywood’s glory days.
