The Viper Room is back!

The legendary West Hollywood landmark reopened its doors this week to a completely packed crowd and an exclusive performance by X Ambassadors, who played several songs, including their chart-topping “Renegades.”

The private reopening event was hosted by 50 Bleu vodka and Casamigos tequila, and had a slew of celebrities in attendance, including Vanessa Hudgens and beau Austin Butler, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kelsey Grammer and Cheryl Burke.

Located across the street from fellow famed Sunset Blvd. musical hotspots including The Roxy and Whiskey a Go Go, the Viper Room, which opened in 1993 by Johnny Depp, has been home to some of rock ‘n roll’s most legendary acts and historical moments.

Thursday night was a who’s who of industry elite and tastemakers at the grand opening of EveryDay Life (EDL)’s modern organic Mexican restaurant and lounge, Toca Madera in L.A.

Taking over what was formerly St. Nick’s Pub, the 8450 W. 3rd St. space has been transformed into an upscale, dim-lit, Dia de los Muertos-themed eatery owned by Tosh Berman and Amrou Manaseer.

Guests at the packed event (including Jhene Aiko, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Ed Westwick, Michael B. Jordan, Emanuelle Chriqui, Cheryl Burke and a very casually clad Ryan Phillippe with girlfriend Paulina Slagter) sipped on red wine and margaritas, while noshing on signature appetizers from the main and vegan menus cooked up by Executive Chef Raymond Alvarez (I highly recommend the mixed mushroom and sweet corn tacos and churro ice cream sandwich!)

Complete with characters roaming around on stilts, women covered in body paint and tunes spun by Ruexx, the evening certainly did not go without entertainment!
