Hollywood

Hollywood's reputation as an upscale playground for celebrities and studio executives dates back to the early days of film. Stars would snooze at the Hollywood Hotel (currently the Hollywood and Highland Complex), dine at the Brown Derby and cozy up over cocktails at the still standing Frolic Room. And though Hollywood nightclubs and bars have seen incredible highs and heart breaking lows, this town simply bounces back every time.

Hollywood's current nightlife landscape is as eclectic and endearing as ever. There are a dozens electric Hollywood night clubs and bars, infamous for the unbelievably attractive crowd and knack for showcasing the nation's top DJs.

Despite Hollywood's obsession with youth and renovation, a few original hangouts still remain. Musso and Frank, the area's oldest restaurant, still serves Hollywood's elite after more than 90 years, with the recently opened bar, The Writer's Room, occupying the eatery's old backroom. The Hollywood Roosevelt, home to gaming parlour and lounge The Spare Room and restaurant Public Kitchen and Bar, is still a hit with young tastemakers.

For something a little more low key, head to the Cahuenga Corridor's army of eateries and lounges, including the rock star-worthy St. Felix and round-the-clock favorite Kitchen 24. Also on the corridor is indie venue Hotel Cafe, popular for highlighting rising singers and musicians on the quest for stardom. Fitting for a town that is famous for making dreams reality.
