Out on the Town: Jeff Andrews Celebrates His New Book, “The New Glamour: Interiors With Star Quality,” With A Party In Los Angeles


Jeff Andrews’ new book, “The New Glamour: Interiors With Star Quality,” is an instant classic, full of stunning photos and ingenious tips. No surprise then that the party celebrating its publication, orchestrated by event planner David Rodgers of David Rodgers Inc., was a sophisticated and stunning affair set against the backdrop of one of Los Angeles’ most beautiful restaurants.

Angelenos have long loved Jar, a chophouse in the heart of the city that dazzles with Chef  Chef Suzanne Tracht’s elevated take on retro classics. For the Wednesday night party, co-hosts Andrews and Mansour Rug’s Benjamin Soleimani took over the entire space. A DJ booth in the corner pumped out classic hits, from Madonna to Janet Jackson and Prince, setting the dance floor alight. Overscale flower arrangements by Joseph Free and oversized photos from the book adorned the luxurious venue.
