Oscar 2017 Luxury Suites: Doris Bergman’s Oscar Style Lounge Brings Out the Stars
By Jenny Peters
Every year when Oscar rolls around, lots of luxury suites and lounges pop up at venues all around town, luring famous faces to come and check out innovative products, try some new and different libations and just generally have a lovely afternoon during the week preceding the Academy Awards.

Bergman takes over that popular eatery’s outdoor patio and fills it with everything a star might need heading onto the red carpet – and beyond.
Two-time Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern led the celebrity charge to Bergman’s suite that was held on February 23, 2017, and headed straight to Art Lewin’s Bespoke Suits and Tuxedos for a chat about having a custom-made suit designed just for his 80-year-old frame. Lewin gifted gorgeous silk ties and pocket squares, too, making sure that 2017 nominees including Best Picture “Hacksaw Ridge” executive producer David Greathouse and Best Song leading contenders Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who received two song nominations from “LA LA Land,” would look sharp at the Oscars (and they eventually won for “City of Stars”).
