Dine and Party at Clifton’s DTLA

Dine and Party at Clifton’s DTLA Along Broadway _____________________ The real draw to our city is Old Hollywood and tales of the Golden Age. Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of the classics you have to admit that those stories from years ago are what started all of the hype for our city today. One of the best places to truly experience the feel of the Los Angeles yesteryear is none other than the historic Clifton’s Cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles. Recently restored to its original splendor, Clifton’s is now the last cafeteria left in the city from the golden era age of cafeteria style dining.

Brunch in Beverly Hills

Brunch in Beverly Hills ——————————- If there’s one thing we Angelenos thrive on, it’s leisurely dining. The one constant observation from guests during our private Beverly Hills and L.A. tours is, “Does anyone work in this town?” All the cafés are jam-packed with people enjoying their downtime. Just drive down 3rd Street with the tons of afternoon hotspots, or go by Urth Caffe on Melrose Avenue….morning, noon, or night, and see the throngs of L.A. folks having salads, lattes, or pastries at this see-and-be-seen corner location in West Hollywood.

Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles

Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles As we wrap up the summer season at The Hollywood Bowl, the L.A. Philharmonic flies south (about 17 minutes) to their winter home at The Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles. This is an amazing venue, and certainly one of the most photographed structures for visitors coming to L.A. This Frank Ghery designed building must be seen in person and on foot. We recommend walking around the entire building to fully understand the dimensions and architecture.
