"Oh what a night …"; The TEN20 Night Scene and Café at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel just off the Sunset Strip may just be the jazziest, snazziest spot in town. By day it’s an elegant café, by night, this cosmopolitan club scene comes alive with terrific food, music and sexy vibes. It doesn’t matter whether you come here with a group or alone. Either way you will feel at home and comfortable in this easy, breezy atmosphere.

The menu is California Fresh meets cool, with excellent salads, entrees, sandwiches and provocative desserts. We were both in the mood for old-fashioned comfort food, which is also served. Maureen had the "Not-So-Traditional Grilled Cheese," which includes three different cheeses, and Thomas had the Southern Fried Chicken basket with great mashed potatoes and biscuits.

Hotel guests are certainly privy to the happenings at TEN20. However, locals are also clued-in about this beautiful room with its large walls of windows, spectacular city views and fine dining. The place can get packed, especially on music nights.

Thursdays are Cabaret Nights at the TEN20 with Les Michaels, the wunderkind impresario who hosts these after dark activities. From about 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., special guest artists perform accompanied by well-known expert pianist Ron Snyder, and from 9 p.m to 11 p.m., it’s Open Mic night. Here, you’ll get a glimpse of multi-talented professionals warming up their latest shows along with some good up-and-comers.

On Fridays from 7 p.m. to midnight is Friday Night Jazz off Sunset. F&B Outlet Supervisor Kevin Rouse, a smooth operator in his own right, hosts this rousing good evening featuring Billy John and the 11 O’Clock News Band and various artists on keyboards, bass, trumpet, and more.

Come for dinner or come just for desserts, drinks and coffees. The welcome mat is always out without an iota of attitude. It’s no surprise to us that everything at the Wyndham Bel Age Hotel is done with class. Parking is only $2 with validation.

TEN20 is located at 1020 N. San Vicente Blvd., in West Hollywood, (310) 854-1111. For more information, visit www.wyndham-belage.com.
