Venue Spotlight: Tanzore

The white room

On Thursday, January 29, I was invited to a Bollywood Extravangaza Event at Tanzore. Tanzore is an Indian restaurant located on Restaurant Row in Los Angeles. Nicole, whose family has owned the restaurant for 18 years was the host for the evening and gave me a tour of all of their spaces. The evening started off with cocktails and appetizers (such as Chicken Kabobs, Crispy Nann Chips served with a tomato chutney and more). I was able to take a tour of the restaurant. Tanzore offers 10 spaces that can fit 10-450 people. The white room can hold 35 people and is used for small intimate events. During the event there was a henna tattoo artist (see pic of my hand above), bollywood dancers that entertained us as well as a DJ. Tanzore also provided a photographer that took digital pictures of all the guests. When we received our picture we were sitting on a rug above the Taj Mahal. This was a great event. If you don't have an event, go there just for dinner. It has a nice calm and relaxing atmosphere.
