Located at Columbia Square, the original home of CBS Radio Studios, Paley is the anchor restaurant of the new NeueHouse development, and part of a multi-million dollar historic preservation project on Sunset Boulevard. Built in 1938, Columbia Square was the epicenter of Hollywood Broadcasting, featuring such stars as Bob Hope, Cecile B. DeMille, Judy Garland, and Lucille Ball. During its heyday, the studio restaurant catered to stars and executives alike, soon earning a reputation as the home of the Hollywood power lunch. Paley, named for the original chairman of CBS, William H. Paley, re-imagines that bygone culture for the modern age, drawing from both the Modernist and Streamline design movements that defined the era. Terrazzo floors and tambour walls reference the style of the period, while playful brass details in the ceiling and columns are a subtle nod to vintage radio details.
