What to do of a night?

I am staying in Beverley Hills for 1 night with my wife and adult daughter. Is there

a good area nearby to walk around have a few drinks and eat. I don't want to just spend all night in a Michelin star restaurant.

Can anyone recommend a suitable area?

Thanks

Assuming you'll have a car, nearby is the Westwood village area next to UCLA - lots of restaurants, bars etc. there, catering to nearby office workers, and to UCLA students and staff, so there's a good variety. Basically from the hotel take Wilshire blvd. west to Westwood Blvd. and then head north a short distance.

Otherwise drive to the Sunset Strip section of Sunset Blvd. (Sunset blvd. roughly between Doheney and Fairfax ave.)

You can walk to bars and restaurants nearby. The Peninsula itself has a major nightlife scene in its bar, as does the Beverly Wilshire down the street. There are bars like Nic's, a 10 minute walk, the bar at Mastros, the bar at Bar Bouchon and more. There are so many great restaurants near The Peninsula, it's a long list - from Cut to Spago to Craft, Bouchon, Mastro, Honor Bar, and more. None of these are Michelin stuffy, except maybe Spago. South Beverly Grill is a great option for your family, also

Last night I was walking on Crescent Drive after a play, which is near the Peninsula, and there are many many many restaurants along Crescent, all with people out on the sidewalk patios and the places were packed, well into the night. Place like Wolfgangs, Porto Via, Cafe Roma, and more, it's really alive.
