Neighbourhood: West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.

Lively night life location
Jun 2021
Our last stop on our Hollywood trip was a visit to Sunset Strip. This 1.6-mile strip of Sunset Boulevard is home to the hip, cool, “wanta bees” and weird younger crowd. Clubs and bars are the prominent feature of this strip. During the day, the area resembles a ghost town with only a few tourists wandering around. Nighttime is an entirely different situation, with lots of patrons and visitors crowding the sidewalks and establishments. Ideal location to view a wide variety of autos ranging from total “Junkers” to top end vehicles (Jags, Lotus, Austin Martin, etc.). As we walked around the area, observed several hotels (i.e., Sunset Tower Hotel and Andaz West Hollywood). Beautiful buildings, with expensive accommodations. Clubs and bars range from “holes in the wall bars” to long time establishments (The Viper Room, Whiskey-a-Go-Go and Rainbow Bar). Mel’s Drive In, and Pink Taco are just a few of the eateries spread out along this strip. Numerous clubs cater to almost every taste ranging from local talent to major headliners shows. If you want to party, this is the ideal area to be in. You will find something to your liking. Spent 2 hours wandering around and observing the activity. Found the Strip to be unique and way out of my realm of activities. As we are “oldster” felt like we had intruded into someone private domain. Felt like a trip to the Twilight Zone. But each to their own ideas of fun.

We loved the lights and the sounds. The air was perfect that night and we were able to see many new things we hadn’t seen before. It was awesome!

Famous for its history
May 2020
The Sunset Strip is really just a portion of Sunset Blvd that stretches through West Hollywood and it is really just a bunch of office building, restaurants, shops, and nightclubs. But it is iconic, especially if you know the history of the Sunset Strip and why it became one of the go to nightlife spots in Los Angeles. Read up a bit about it first (even if its just the Wiki page) and then take a drive down Sunset and stop off at one of the iconic spots. Also keep your eye out for both the views and a famous celebrity spotting.

Couldn’t post much photos since well it was juSt a dark and gloomy area now. Guess tourists need to go during the day although I wanted to see the lights at night.

Great place to stay!
Feb 2020 • Family
Looked at two hotel; one on the strip and the other near Hollywood boulevard. Glad I picked the strip because Hollywood boulevard was a waste of time. It was a 1.75 bus ride but only stayed about an hour. The strip had plenty to do including good restaurants and live music. Plus plenty of famous places including the Whisky and Chateau. Also did not have the crowds. I also saw Joni Mitchell's "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Enjoyable evening stroll
Oct 2019
We strolled from Beverly Hills Hotel all the way to Amoeba Music over a few hours, taking in the evening bustle and vibrant atmosphere.

We saw some of the most famous music venues such as Whiskey a Go Go and Roxy Theatre that have been the home for performances by renowned bands from the 1960s onwards.

We adjourned to The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker for a delicious dinner, with a table in the pleasant courtyard.

Later we stopped off at the Andaz Hotel for a cocktail and snack. Famed as hotel of choice for many performers such as Little Richard, who resided there for over a decade.

Arrays of billboards were aglow promoting movies and other entertainments.
