Party Like a Movie Star - Sort of...

Orson Welles Estate
 If you really want to wow your friends and family why not have your next party at the former home of an actor, director or pop star. A company called Eventup has a huge selection of properties (that is real estate lingo) that you can rent for a special occasion. Some of them once belonged to a celebrity. We don't have any connection to Eventup. We post this information just because it is kind of fun.

1) Director/writer/actor Orson Welles former Hollywood Hills home.  COST: $2000.00
Property Description: Hollywood Hills Historic Property with 16,000 Sq Ft Yard. Great for small weddings and get togethers with pool and waterfalls. City view from front and back yards.
TAS Comment: Big stinky cigars and a cape are de rigueur.

  1. At first I thought this were the actual prices of the houses but then I realized it's only for one party night. Interesting idea though :)

  2. I would definitely party in some of these houses!! Need to find a booking agency to get some acts at my next event.

  3. If you are looking for an ideal hen party spot with perfect blend of sand, sea, surf and sun, then there is no need to hunt further.

  5. So that's only for one night? They look great yes, but I've seen better and they are much cheaper. These properties are pricey because they were former homes of actors and directors. If I'll have my party I'd rather do it at Malden MA party venue. They are perfect and they have great menu.

  7. Personally, I like movie themed parties. Those are full of fun and enjoyable. We celebrated our son’s 7th birthday in Batman style. Had reserved one of his favorite party venues in Houston for the party. The place was quite pretty and provided all facilities for the birthday bash.
