Your guide to the most talked about bars, eateries and nightclubs on the Sunset Strip

If Hollywood is home to L.A.'s film world, then the Sunset Strip is the mecca for music lovers. Alluring and seductive, the appeal of Sunset Strip lies in its ability to embrace and captivate anyone brave enough to journey along its storied path. This area has enough personality to attract large crowds and enough charisma to light up half the city, with music venues, eateries and nightclubs that welcome both famous and not-so famous faces on its spashy, neon lit streets around the clock.

Venues on Sunset don't play by the rules. Within the Sunset Strip's one and a half miles lies more history, scandal and secrets than most towns could ever dream of. Nestled between the opulence of Beverly Hills and the edginess that defines West Hollywood, this pocket of entertainment is a must see for music lovers, foodies, club hoppers and laid-back loungers. If the walls to legendary music venues like The Roxy and The Viper Room could talk, they would spill secrets about many of the famous faces that have stumbled through their doors. And while you can get your pulse racing at one of the many legendary music venues, the Strip's landscape continues to evolve with fine dining restaurants like Asia de Cuba and BLT Steak and ultra-lounges Trousdale and The Den. Whether you laugh the night away at the world-famous Laugh Factory or sip Dom Perignon in a bungalow at the Chateau Marmont, when you go to the Sunset Strip, prepare to be a part of history. - Shontel Horne

Interesting Facts

Ever wonder why there are so many advertisements along the Strip? The large, colorful billboards (also known as Vanity Boards) were initially designed to catch the eye of movie producers and studio executives as they drove on Sunset to work in Hollywood from their homes Beverly Hills in the early days of Hollywood.


Elevate Lounge
811 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles

Elevate Lounge in Los Angeles is one of the best clubs I've ever been to. The view from the 21st floor is great, as it reaches over downtown L.A. Well spaced and still cozy, the atmosphere is lively but not too loud. Purple lighting that fills the club helps with Elevate's well earned style. The custom Absolut LA drink served there with lemon is one of the best had. Ever! 5 stars!
