Events at The Mermaid

Topanga, LA, California
A Bohemian Rhapsody

Over the years, this famous retreat has undergone many incarnations but remains our very own hometown legend. We love its classic beauty, Bohemian elegance and dazzling mountain location. A beautiful and unique setting for creative events, it's lovely, historic and just a little bit notorious… 

Celebrated in song and later inspired by Shakespeare's Mermaid Tavern, this fabled retreat features a fascinating history, classic beauty and a stunning mountain landscape. A popular venue for retreats, weddings, memorials, benefits and location shoots, as well as the site of community events, parties and gatherings over the years. This is one of our favorites places to get inspired, get creative and compose an intimate and memorable event.

Originally built as a country club house in 1930 when the Santa Monica Mountains were a distant and very rural destination, La Sirena's storied history spans decades of change and adaptation. From a gambling hall and brothel run by gangster Mickey Cohen to a gay nightclub in the 1950s, to one of the more celebrated artist hangouts of the 70s, this beautiful Spanish gem has seen it all. Tucked away in a quiet and private canyon surrounded by thousands of acres of mountain terrain and lush gardens, the classic Mediterranean architecture has been lovingly and faithfully restored to its former glory.

Rustic and graceful, the house's grand scale is majestic but remains intimate and inviting. The massive great hall is the heart of the house with soaring vaulted ceilings, arched windows and a grand fireplace to gather round. Bright and expansive, the interiors are furnished elegantly and comfortably with simple classic pieces and a unique collection of antiques.

The estate can accommodate up to ten overnight guests and a maximum of one hundred and fifty on site. The property meanders through lush mature gardens with many peaceful spots to enjoy the wild natural beauty, mountain views and native wildlife.

The dramatic scale and indoor outdoor living areas creates bright open spaces with room to spread out and entertain and where you can create your ideal celebration. Bring your wedding or event planner along or inquire about fully customized all inclusive packages.

This grande dame is a beautifully preserved vintage gem with a slightly checkered past that will charm and inspire you with its beauty, artistic spirit and fascinating heritage making your special event something to remember.
