It's impossible not to fall in love with The Beverly Hills Hotel.
The Polo Lounge, a must for brunch, is swathed in soft light and surrounded by gorgeous foliage. Their menu is a refined approach to American classics that are worth the splurge.
Every detail is thoroughly considered and eating here is not only a feast for the appetite but also the eyes. Especially their beautiful brunch cocktails, proof to the left, which are the perfect way to kick start your trip to LA.
If you're looking for a dinner spot in this neighborhood, AOC serves up delicious Californian-French dishes and gorgeous cocktails in an ethereal setting, ask to be seated outside.
Would it be a trip to LA without a visit to the beach?
Malibu is home to miles of gorgeous beaches just a short drive away from the heart of LA.
Our favorite spot to watch the waves roll in and the surfers roll by is Zuma, a slice of heaven on earth.
The best shopping nooks can be found along Lincoln Boulevard.
General Store, Late Sunday Afternoon - both pictured, Moon Juice and Christy Dawn are some of our Venice faves.
If you need sustenance after an afternoon of shopping you must grab snacks and/or drinks either at The Butcher's Daughter - amazing freshly pressed vegetable juice cocktails, or Rose Cafe for modern southern Californian bites.
Chateau Marmont is our ultimate night cap spot. Delicious Frosé cocktails flow while you DJ your own set with their house turn table and vinyl collection, heavy with 70s and 80s classics.
Dinner spots in Hollywood are plentiful, but we simply love the slice of old school Hollywood you get at Musso & Frank.
