The exquisitely beautiful restored art deco Tower Bar at the Sunset Tower Hotel is a joy to behold. Featuring a magnificent atmosphere overlooking Los Angeles with a warm comfortable fireplace-included atmosphere like you dream Hollywood should be. Star gazing is also likely and amusing, as the top notch staff are accommodating, discrete and at your service.

My partner and I were travelling to Los Angeles from the UK for the New Year. I booked this restaurant through Open Table and entered a request for a nice quiet, romantic table preferably with a view as it was my partner's birthday. As the website did not have an e-mail address I also sent them a Facebook message asking... More

I feel fancy and fun here! Dimitri at the helm of an elegant ship taking you away from the grind. Every thing you order is beautiful and delicious and everyone serving you is kind and generous.

Breakfast was very good but service was not great. Prices reasonable. I had the two eggs with chicken sausage. oJ was not freshly squeezed. Cappuccino was amazing

Friends who live in LA couldn't wait to get us to this trendy spot, but all we did was laugh and leave. Sat down, immediately saw some familiar Hollywood faces, and settled in for a great night. Weeeeell, not so much. After sitting for 2 HOURS with the bottles of wine we brought we were told by a very sorry... More

Just had the most delicious brunch at the Sunset tower bar. If you're not being served by Angel, then ask to switch servers! He is amazing and took fantastic care of us. We'll be back..

We booked this restuarant for the last night of our stay in Los Angeles, hoping for a nice meal before we left. We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and were asked to sit in the lounge area until our table was ready. We were served a drink each. Unfortunately, 40 minutes later, we were still waiting for our pre-booked... 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.
