Where the cool kids come out to play, L.A. is a playground filled with endless trendy hotspots, it-girl boutiques and chic eateries where you go not only for the food, but also to be seen.

Relax poolside at The Beverly Hills Hotel or The Roosevelt, kick back with the who’s who of Hollywood at the iconic Chateau Marmont, grab a bite to eat at L.A. hotspots Nobu Malibu and The Ivy, or shop up a storm at Fred Segal or The Grove.

Los Angeles is a melting-pot of celebrity haunts, from LAX to Sunset Boulevard, with the chances of seeing your favourite star increasing with every corner you turn. So be sure to keep those eyes peeled!

The Beverly Hills Hotel

A favourite of celebs and Hollywood legends, and just steps from Rodeo Drive, this hotel is famous for its towering palm trees, pink exterior and poolside glamour. Enjoy a relaxing facial or therapeutic massage at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie, relax in a cabana by the pool with a cocktail in hand and be treated like the star you are, or grab a bite to eat in the very chic Cabana Cafe and bask in the L.A. sun. For the ultimate celeb-spotting experience, indulge in a delicious meal at The Polo lounge - nowhere else could make a striped ceiling look so chic!

Chateau Marmont

The iconic castle on the hill, this exclusive L.A. hotspot is reminiscent of Old Hollywood. Located off Sunset Strip and well-known for its privacy, it is a favourite of the Young Hollywood set to escape the prying eyes and lenses of the paparazzi. But goods new for you, all hotel guests are considered to be insiders - there is no velvet rope! The Restaurant and Bar Marmont both boast premium cocktail menus and delicious dishes. From Clark Gable to John Lennon, Elizabeth Taylor, Sofia Coppola, Mick Jagger and Britney Spears, the hotel has played host to some of the world’s biggest stars and scandalous stories.

Malibu

A playground of the rich and famous, Malibu is a hidden beachside gem. Visit the uber-cool Nobu Malibu and soak up the incredible ocean views, whilst dining on a variety of exquisite dishes and keeping your eye out for the Kardashians, Jennifer Aniston and Mariah Carey, who are known to frequent the restaurant. Reservations are strongly recommended. You can also live like a local at the Malibu Farmers Market, or soak up the sun on one of the many beaches, including El Matador State Beach and Carbon Beach, which has been nicknamed ‘Billionaire’s Beach’ because of its famous residents.

Melrose Avenue

From high fashion to vintage wares, this boutique-lined street is a popular area for tourists and native Angelenos, and is also favoured by the who’s who of Hollywood. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled in exclusive retailers such as the ivy-covered Fred Segal store, the eco-friendly Reformation and Revolve, which is a members-only store, but you might be lucky and spot some of the biggest bloggers popping in for a private shopping spree or exclusive party. Melrose Avenue is also home to many popular eateries including Urth Caffe, Craig’s and Cecconi’s, all of which have become celeb haunts.
