Travel in Style and Comfort with VIP and Concierge Level Tickets at the Garden Tour!
Do you want to experience the annual Virginia Robinson Garden tour on Saturday, May 20, 2017 on a more luxurious and spectacular level? Then, consider VIP and Concierge level tickets when visiting the private gardens! With the VIP van, you will enjoy the ease and convenience of door-to-door transportation. No need to drive, navigate, and look for parking! With the Concierge luxury van, you gain the additional benefit of a knowledgeable docent-led tour that will inspire and entertain you. PLUS, VIP and Concierge tickets visit a BONUS garden that is not available for the general admission level ticket holders. Upon returning from the private gardens tour, Concierge guests are served lunch with special, decorated and designated reserved tables, and will receive a lovely gift bag with items from Jo Malone and Bobbi Brown. Additionally, Friends of Robinson Gardens ambassadors will guide your visit to the fabulous boutique, auction, and beautiful exhibits.
Another convenience is the opportunity of Valet Parking your car with a pre-paid ticket. (The Concierge ticket includes the Valet Parking.) No need to park your car blocks away, and wait for the shuttle! Instead, you can drop off your car at Valet Parking, and when you are ready to leave at the end of the day, your car will be driven up to the entrance of Virginia Robinson Gardens. Since valet parking is not available to purchase the day of the event, be sure to buy it in advance. Please note that the valet parking is only for the Virginia Robinson estate.
An exciting reason to consider the Concierge level this year is that we are very lucky to have the legendary event planner Mindy Weiss and the immensely talented florists from Marks Garden decorating the beautiful and elegant tables. Mindy is famous for planning truly spectacular and extraordinary events. Evoking the exotic Hollywood films from the era of Rudolf Valentino and Douglas Fairbanks that transported movie audiences around the world, the tables will entrance you with the opulent theme of the Indian Raj.
In keeping with the motif of legendary Beverly Hills, signature dishes from iconic restaurants of yore and some that are still with us today will be served, such as the famous Chili from Chasen’s, the salmon pizza from Spago, and the garlic noodles from Crustacean. Favorites from the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Mandarin, Romanoff’s, the Bistro Garden and others will further delight you.
Rarely open to the public, all the gardens are truly spectacular and the quintessence of legendary Beverly Hills. The BONUS garden is also an unbelievable opportunity to experience!
Don’t miss these great opportunities! Pamper yourself on this special day, and all for a great cause: preserving the splendor and the beauty of Beverly Hills’ public gem – the Virginia Robinson Gardens.
