WHAT:   Smartwater sparkling and W Hotels partnered to host a rooftop dinner as part of the latest installment of the Insider Collective, an exclusive series of intimate events that have been popping up at W Hotels around the globe. The private event was held at W Hollywood with special guest, chef Roy Choi who chatted with innovators of food, fashion and fitness who attended.

This special event celebrated the launch of new smartwater sparkling, which has all of the attributes of the smartwater you know and love but with just the right amount of bubbles. Smartwater sparkling is now available at select retailers (including upscale dining locations and hotels, online sites and club outlets) in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami. Initially available in one-liter bottles, smartwater sparkling has a suggested retail price of $1.99 and is the perfect pairing for your dining experiences.

The goal of the W Hotels Insider Collective is simple: to bring together the most dynamic people in the fashion, music, tech, design and culinary worlds as only W Hotels can. Carefully curated, these events are designed to bring together influencers from different worlds for spirited conversation over good music and even better food and cocktails.

Roy Choi is a chef, restaurateur, and author based in Los Angeles who is responsible for essential California restaurants and food such as POT, Commissary, Chego, A-Frame, and Kogi™, one of the first food trucks in a movement that has now gone nationwide. In January 2016, he will open in Watts, an exciting and innovative restaurant concept that combines high quality with fast food. While he has traditional culinary training, he also draws inspiration from music, art, and, of course, well-crafted beer.
