Fun place to check out but easy to get lost lol. I had been there before but met some locals who had not been there and they had a hard time finding their way around, but staff there are friendly and helpful

1,200,000 square feet multi-use facility for the design community located in West Hollywood, California. One of the buildings is often described as the Blue Whale because of its outsize nature relative to surrounding buildings and its brilliant blue glass cladding. Blue Building and Red Building are open. Red building is fast being completed. NOT retail, but if you get very... More

Very cool to look at and a fun place for special events (I met Karl Lagerfeld here) but unless you can afford a decorator, not much use.

The PDC originally began with the blue building which was nicknamed "The Blue Whale," Then the green building was constructed and within the last few years the red (and final) building. The PDC is a design center whose occupants (mostly) offer design objects for your home or office. Many, I think, only allow visitors by appointment but not all of... More

We keep forgetting that The Pacific Design is closed on Sundays. The last 2 times we dropped by, we weren't able to check out the galleries inside. But nevertheless, it was still worth the trip to just marvel at that riot of colors outside. The palm trees are firmly established by now. They are so robust and healthy. They look... More

We especially like to check out the video installations at Young Projects on the second floor. They have two galleries and the shows change every month or so.

I'm having to go to the design center a lot as I'm furnishing a new home. I think this place has some weird vibe since none of the shops have many windows. It makes most of the people who work there very grumpy and angry. And, if you are not a designer, get ready to be abused. They really don't... More

Interesting concept, but no. Unfortunately, I have been to this building more times than I can count, using the vendors that do business here. It used to be a fun place to go, with both the blue and green buildings full of design trade-types, but now it is empty. There are no good restaurants to speak of, except Red 7... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
