We’re super excited to announce the venue of the 2012 Los Angeles Beard and Mustache Competition! The Belasco Theater is about a 500% increase in capacity compared to the venue we held the event at last year. Here’s a little more about the venue:
Located in downtown Los Angeles, the Belasco Theater is a world-class multi-purpose event and entertainment complex. Thanks to a $12 million restoration, this 40,000 sq. ft. venue retains most of its original architecture and design—including dramatic interior detailing—meshed with distinctly modern flair and state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology. These elements combine seamlessly for a truly one-of-a-kind nightlife and special event destination.
Inside the Belasco are a variety of stand-alone spaces suitable for events ranging from concerts to corporate gatherings. Rooms include the Main Theater, the Ballroom, the Basement Lounge, Café Belasco (casual outdoor dining), Grill Fresco (seafood restaurant), and Vintage 10 Fifty (wine/tapas bar). All of the Belasco’s catering and dining efforts are run by executive chef Aaron Respicio.
A visit to the Belasco Theater is truly a visceral—and visual—experience. Our all-encompassing D&B Audiotechnik is the largest and most powerful sound system in Los Angeles. This top-of-the-line sound, along with their state-of-the-art lighting features, create an unforgettable environment that engages all of the senses. Thanks to our full spectrum of sophisticated equipment and audio/visual technology, all aspects of production are possible under one roof.
Masked in tradition, the Belasco Theater is ushering in a new standard for the entertainment experience. We welcome you to schedule and attend events at the Belasco, one of downtown Los Angeles’ most venerable landmarks ready to make history once again.
So as you can see, with the help of the Belasco Theater. we are going to take beard and mustache competitions to a new level of size and class. Here are a few beautiful shots of the venue to get you pumped!
