Our Story

Filling a long-overlooked niche for industry professionals, celebrities, and locals alike to dine, socialize, and unwind, XEN Lounge opened in Studio City in September 2012.

The restaurant, bar, and lounge is a venture of actor, writer, producer, and entrepreneur Duane Martin, who was determined to bring a dynamic nightspot with a strong culinary program to Ventura Boulevard. Named after his son, the restaurant is located near a multitude of entertainment studios, and just minutes from Hollywood. “I wanted to fill a void by creating a space with Beverly Hills elegance, décor, and cuisine in the Valley,” explains Martin, who envisioned a hybrid restaurant/lounge suitable for a wide range of occasions and high-end clientele. “MBE Certified” by the Supplier Clearinghouse.
