Book Your Los Angeles Summer Vacations Now

It’s that time of year when Glitterati Tours reminds potential visitors to book their Los Angeles summer vacations NOW! As mentioned in previous posts, tourism across the United States, as of now, is very hard to predict.  Analysts have noted noticeable cancelations or a slow-down in pre-bookings from some of our biggest markets, including Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia.  In some cases, this also coincides with a strong dollar, with other world-wide destinations offering up a bigger bang for the buck for travelers. There’s no way to know what summer will bring? It has certainly been an erratic calendar since November.  Even this last month, we had the opposite in scheduling as March came in like a lamb and

Oscar Parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills

It’s that time of year when actors and actresses survive on a lima bean per day to look their best for the Academy Awards and the many Oscar parties in Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  The actual ceremony is on Sunday, February 26, 2017, but look for events all week long. Slim to none, you’ll get close to your favorite stars on Hollywood Blvd, as seating in the bleachers for the red carpet arrivals is already maxed out with their online lottery to fill approximately 700 seats. Security is extremely tight in the general area of the Dolby Theatre, with road closures blocks away on each side of the venue.  Because the Governors Ball takes place just above the Dolby, this

We often say celebrity sightings in Hollywood and Beverly Hills can be very hit and miss.  Some may see a dozen A-listers within 5 hours of being in our city, while others could be here a week and not see a single celeb.  A guaranteed celebrity sighting is always at the Hollywood Walk of Fame upcoming ceremonies.  Not only do you get the recipient of this honor, but you also get the many movie and TV stars showing up to honor the Walk of Fame recipient. Here’s a HUGE upcoming ceremony: Thursday, January 19th, 2017 Producer/ Directer Brett Ratner will receive the 2,599th star on the Walk of Fame, at 1130AM in the Motion Pictures category at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard

Catch Restaurant in West Hollywood for Celebrity Sightings

Catch Restaurant in West Hollywood has only been open a month, but has already solidified itself as a favorite for the A-Lister celebrity crowd.  It sits at the corner of San Vicente and Melrose, just south of the beautiful West Hollywood Library, and across the street from The Pacific Design Center.  A host or hostess greets you on the lower level entrance and escorts you to the rooftop bar and restaurant.  The decor and ambiance are very inviting, especially during sunsets. The menu is eclectic with a focus on sushi and seafood.  We recently had a fantastic sample of their offerings, including the roasted beet salad, and their jumbo shrimp from the cold menu.  We also had their Tartare Trio
