Hollywood Dreamers

Hollywood, home to the rich, famous and endless dreamers. Need I say anymore, this place was literally the BOMB and just how you've got it pictured in your head... The never ending palm trees, the pristine streets of Hollywood and the continuous stream of immaculate people walking down every street corner... Yes, it's as real as the movies.

For the majority of our visit we stayed right in the hub of West Hollywood in a gorgeous AirBnB only 10 minutes from Melrose & Sunset Blvd.  

The first weekend we arrived we took a quick whirlwind  trip down to Palm Springs to experience the parties happening around Coachella  (those who saw our Instagram stories would have seen it was an epic/ mental 24 hours! )

When we ventured back to West Hollywood we spent most of our days exploring, mingling and indulging in all that American cuisine has to offer. Yes, we consumed our  body weight in american candy, nachos and the obligatory  'In 'n' Out' burgers as well as every cocktail under the sun! (Delish!)

Below we've compiled a small list of stand out places that we loved and would highly recommend checking out if you're ever in La la land. 

 The Warwick - If you're looking for a big night out  look no further than the Warwick on Sunset Blvd, part cocktail lounge part Hollywood club. A space suited to bottle/table service but with an edgy/ rustic feel to it.. Go on a Wednesday, it's when most industry people go so more of a scenester crowd, if you're into that... 

Zinque -  The perfect brunch spot with a super cute outdoor patio (make sure you sit outside if the weather holds up) the interior is equally as gorgeous with a really cool vibe. If you're going for brekkie I'd recommend  the egg white fritata bowl. The burger however looks sensational! 

Soho House - You have to be a member to come here, but if you get the chance it's worth a visit not only for a cheeky cocktail and some celeb spotting but also the bathrooms have the most insane views of LA! You could easily spend the day here as it has a cinema room, roof garden and an intimate club room! That's you're Friday night sorted! 

Sugar Fish - The best sushi you will find in LA no doubt! I never liked tuna sashimi until I came here. It's an intimate & modest space where all focus lies purely on the tastebuds! Service is fab and the staff are super friendly. Make sure you get the 'Trust Me' platter, it's a mix of maki rolls, sashimi and sushi cones and the perfect amount if you're hungry.

Pink Taco - Teeeeequilaaa! As Mexico as their neighbour it's no doubt that the food is the real deal here and also why the locals go crazy for it! This place is a quirky and vibey spot. Not only are the Margaritas delicious, the shrimp fajitas are some of the best I've tried. tip: Don't fill up on the endless nachos they bring you when you arrive! 

Malibu - The city west of L.A., If you're looking for a beach day, Malibu is you're place. Also perfect for a spot of surfing, beware though the water is icy so be sure to take a wetsuit! It's definitely one of the prettiest beaches and known for it's surrounding celebrity homes! Keep you're eyes peeled for Anthony Hopkins. ;)

Melrose Avenue - The cutest place with some adorable boutiques and fashionable juicery's! Make sure you go to the 'liquid juice bar' and order the 'nutty professor.' OMG you haven't lived until you try this smoothie. For all you fashionistas make sure you take a trip to fashion store Reformation (this is what clothing dreams are made of.) It's pricey but worth every penny. Afterwards head to 'Carrera cafe' for a pastry and coffee. (Insta worthy for sure!)
