Nightlife

Los Angeles is famous for its year-round exceptional weather - well, it is along the golden coast! So any day in LA presents the perfect opportunity to stay out all night on a rooftop. Both nightclubs and chilled out bars aplenty open out to the warm night sky. Some of the coolest hangouts include High Rooftop Lounge, Perch LA, Standard Downtown, Mama Shelter, Pearl's Rooftop, Upstairs / Ace Hotel Bar.

Cuisine

When it comes to food, Los Angeles is a gold mine. You’ll hit the motherlode no matter where you go along the spectrum of options, from super-healthy-vegan-kale food and over-the-top greasy. You can’t go to LA without indulging in some of their most well known fast food chains including In-N-Out Burger, Original Tommy’s and Fatburger. But since conventional wisdom tells us to strike balance, venture out for a healthy dose of your greens at some of LA’s healthy spots including Café Gratitude, The Grain Café and Baroo.

Celebrity Spotting

A trip to Los Angeles wouldn’t be complete without catching a glimpse of the rich and famous. Celebrities are practically on every corner LA, and for the most part, they’re used to causing a scene amongst the everyday folk. For those who want to catch the A-list crowd in their natural habitat without looking like a tourist, the following LA restaurants are celebrity hot spots: Chateau Marmont, The Ivy, Boa Steakhouse, Katsuya, Spago Beverly Hills, Crustacean and Nobu.

Shopping

The shopping opportunities are endless in Los Angeles, with malls including The Grove, Beverly Centre and Hollywood & Highland. Pop in and out of high-end designer grabs on Rodeo Drive and Robertson Boulevard, and dash into the markets of Melrose Trading Post, Downtown Fashion Walk and Santee Alley.
