Capping off what will be a busy night, he will host his own invite-only affair on Santa Monica Boulevard.
“This should be a party.”
Those words belong to Jimmy Fallon, speaking about what he expects to go down inside The Beverly Hilton on Sunday when he takes the stage as host of the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards. But if the big show isn’t quite the fiesta that he hoped it would be, well, there’s always the afterparty.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the Tonight Show star has booked West Hollywood hotspot Delilah to host his own private afterparty. And good luck getting in: Fallon bought out the entire restaurant, so it could be reserved for his private guest list.
It’s typical for hosts of major Hollywood awards shows to host their own bashes. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler threw a joint bash at Soho House when they hosted in 2013, and more recently, Jimmy Kimmel invited his friends for a foodie’s paradise at The Lot the same night he hosted the Emmys.
It’s unclear, though, what time Fallon will actually make it to his Delilah destination because it’s expected he’ll make a cameo at the NBCUniversal post-Globes party on the Hilton rooftop to pay his respects to his NBC colleagues, and he may also stop by to see his agents at the CAA afterparty at Sunset Tower.
What will be waiting for him at Delilah — the latest venture from the H.Wood Group’s John Terzian and Brian Toll, which is described as a hybrid restaurant and lounge paying homage to the roaring ’20s — is a menu featuring deviled eggs, chicken tenders, oysters, mac ‘n’ cheese and “Kendall’s slutty brownie.” The latter contains an Oreo, chocolate chip cookie, brownie, ice cream and chocolate fudge. (Coincidentally, Delilah’s hosted Kendall Jenner’s 21st birthday party in November.)
When THR caught up with Fallon ahead of his Globes hosting gig, he said he hopes “to have fun with as many people as I possibly can. I think you’ll see a lot of my friends.”
While he was talking about the show, he might as well have been talking about his upcoming afterparty. The venue seats 250 and allows 350 total.
Stay tuned to see who shows up …
