SUR

Whether it’s for the iconic SUR-vers, the opulent and totally OTT interiors, a glimpse of the real housewife Lisa Vanderpump, to mingle with the ‘It’ crowd, or to spend an afternoon sipping bespoke cocktails, a trip to SUR Restaurant is an essential West Hollywood experience. A hotspot on the celebrity dining circuit since the debut of the reality series ‘Vanderpump Rules’, the exotic cuisine, decadent drinks and vibrant atmosphere will have you wining, dining and dancing well into the night.

Paul Smith Pink Wall

Located on the corner of the popular shopping strip Melrose Avenue, you literally can’t miss Paul Smith’s Insta-famous ‘pink wall’ – or the crowds of influencers staging the perfect snap. Whilst each of Paul Smith’s stores boast a unique graphic design, the West Hollywood location is an LA phenomenon. Nab a spot in front of the vibrant wall and get that perfect selfie, or if it’s a little too crowded, head across the road to Carrera Cafe, where they have great coffee and their own rotating insta-wall.

The Nice Guy

A playground for A-listers, foodies and night owls, The Nice Guy is one of LA’s most exclusive eateries, although the intimate atmosphere, dim lighting and no-frills decor make it feel more like a private party. If you’re lucky enough to nab a VIP booth, don’t be surprised if your seated next to a famou face: Justin Bieber, the Kardashians and the Hadids are known to drop by – just remember to play it cool! As with the vibe, the modern-American menu comprises everything and anything, ensuring that no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it at The Nice Guy!

Book Soup

Known for their floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, high profile author readings, limited edition books and vinyls, and celebrity clientele, Book Soup is an absolute must-visit while in West Hollywood. From art and music, to film, photography and literary fiction, you’ll find every genre covered amongst their mammoth collection of 60,000 books. Find a cozy nook and get stuck into a good read, hunt down a rare find, attend a book signing or just spend the afternoon browsing.

Cecconi’s

Located on the corner of the famous Melrose Ave and Robertson Boulevard, Cecconi’s is a local institution, serving classic Italian fare and craft cocktails in a haute dining space. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, the food is always fresh, the atmosphere is always vibrant and the drinks are always flowing! Go early and watch as the crowd shifts from business at lunch to an uber stylish clientele in the evenings – including a few A-listers. Whether it’s your first time or your tenth, a visit to this foodie haven is a must!

E.P & L.P

Popular Asian-fusion restaurant and Rooftop Bar, E.P. & L.P. on Melrose Avenue combines the best of both worlds, making it a one-stop-shop for an unforgettable night out. Rally up some friends and an appetite and start at E.P Restaurant, where you can enjoy fresh Asian-fusion share plates, before heading upstairs to the whimsical L.P rooftop bar for breathtaking views of the city, along with craft cocktails and light bites. Celebrating a special occasion? Book Frankie’s and enjoy your own little secluded nook on the rooftop. Either way, it’s an absolute must-visit!
