Babcock & Story Bar
Babcock & Story, affectionately called B&S, was named after The Del’s visionary founders Elisha Babcock and H.L. Story, two mid-western businessmen who dreamed of building a resort hotel that would be the “talk of the Western world.”
Babcock & Story Bar is designed to take advantage of the spectacular seaside setting. The original 46-foot handcrafted mahogany bar, which was brought by ship from Philadelphia around Cape Horn in 1888, is the centerpiece for the bar. B&S Bar offers signature margaritas, blended tropical drinks, California premier wines, espressos and light fare.
Over the past century, the Crown Room has enjoyed a distinguished social history. Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum is credited with designing the crown chandeliers that adorn the ceiling. In 1920, an enormous banquet was held here for England’s Prince of Wales, and in 1927 Charles Lindbergh was honored with his own celebration after his successful transatlantic flight. The Crown Room was also the scene for the first state dinner held outside of the White House.
Today, the Crown Room’s tradition of elegance continues as it plays host to a spectacular and award-winning Sunday Brunch. This interactive and luxurious progressive dining experience is a feast for the senses. Multiple stations offer a cornucopia of gourmet cuisine, manned by white toque-wearing sous chefs who “bring the kitchen into the room,” according to executive sous chef Julian Quinones. “Our goal is to offer a great experience for our guests that constantly evolves. We use brunch as a platform to try new ideas, trends and dishes.” The Crown Room is also the site for many holiday celebrations and special events.
