Things to Do in West Hollywood
Where are the best places to eat in West Hollywood?
Well, if you’re looking for Cali-fresh cuisine sourced from the area’s best local producers, you should definitely try The Jeremy’s Etcho Café and Joao Cocktail Bar.
But if you want to extend your culinary footprint, then be sure to visit local joints like Norah for an elevated dining experience, E.P. & L.P., Night + Market (try the Thai Martini!), and Sushi Park, which is tucked away in a strip mall on W. Sunset Blvd. We also love to go the Melrose Place Farmers’ Market on Sunday mornings (open 10am–2pm).

What’s in West Hollywood?
This question should probably be, “What’s NOT in West Hollywood?” because everything you could possibly imagine can be found in WeHo.
To start with, the West Hollywood restaurant and bar scene is fantastic—especially along the Sunset Strip, which runs 1.6 miles along Sunset Boulevard from Crescent Heights Boulevard to Sierra Drive. It’s home to excellent boutiques and restaurants, as well as famous concert clubs like The Roxy, The Viper Room (which is now open for happy hour, 4pm-7pm), and Whiskey A Go-Go, and comedy hotspots The Comedy Store and Laugh Factory.
With WeHo being such a hotbed of creativity, there are dozens of local art galleries. Moran Bondaroff and Hamilton-Selway Fine Art are just two of the stand-outs. There are also the shops of Melrose Avenue, and the West Hollywood Design District, where “over 250 global merchants and creative leaders have chosen the walkable radius of Melrose Avenue, Beverly Boulevard, and Robertson Boulevard as their West Coast home.”
Local nearby attractions include the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre for the latest movie premieres, The Hollywood Bowl for the best in concerts, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the La Brea Tar Pits & Museum, the Getty Center, and the world’s most famous sidewalk: the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Just a few miles east of West Hollywood is Runyon Canyon, where you can hike the Hollywood Hills and get killer views of Los Angeles. And if you want to hit the famed LA beaches, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach are all within 20 miles.
And of course, every October 31st, there’s the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval—one of the biggest Halloween celebration in the world. This annual public event takes place on Santa Monica Boulevard between North Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard, and features multiple entertainment stages, live music, bar specials, and some of the best people-watching you’ll ever experience.
