Hollywood Sports Bars for Super Bowl 2019

Crazy to think that Los Angeles went 2 decades without an NFL team, and we just had two teams– with the Chargers, and the Rams– making the divisional playoffs.  Next Sunday, January 20th, will tell us if our one remaining team that has made it to the next playoff game (The Rams) will be in The Super Bowl with the Patriots, Saints or Chiefs. If you’re not in Atlanta for The Super Bowl, and find yourself in Los Angeles, don’t worry…there’s plenty of local hotspots to watch the game and celebrate with Angelenos.  Especially if our home team makes it into the big game. Of course, every barber shop, hotel bar, restaurant, shopping venue, etc., will be playing the game

Santa Monica Restaurant Week

Hey foodies! We have two questions for you…What exactly is a persimmon, and how could it make for a great weekend in Santa Monica? If you don’t know the answer to either of these questions, that’s okay. I myself had to look up exactly what a persimmon was (it’s an edible fruit that resembles a large, yellow tomato and has a sweet flesh. You’re welcome). If you are interested in this cheeky tomato doppelganger, this weekend is the time to try it out. The Santa Monica Restaurant Week has made the persimmon the central ingredient, and this weekend marks the final few days for great deals. Today through Sunday, you can experience some of the best food Santa Monica has

The Grill on The Alley Restaurant in Beverly Hills

One of our most important jobs in conducting luxury private tours of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, is keeping up to date on the hottest, hippest restaurants and bars (as much as our paychecks will allow).  Sometimes, we focus on the up-and-coming spots, because that’s what many of our guests have heard about.  The problem with this approach is that we can miss a gem of a restaurant that’s been in our own backyard for decades. The Grill on The Alley Restaurant in Beverly Hills is one of them.  For years, we’ve told our many VIP’s about this spot which is just steps from Rodeo Drive, without ever trying it firsthand.  That all changed the other night, and we may

Happy New Year from Glitterati Tours of L.A.

Happy New Year from Glitterati Tours of L.A.!  We want to thank our past, present, and future guests, concierges, and travel agents for helping to make Glitterati Tours the #1 Tour Company on TripAdvisor for Beverly Hills. 2018 was no different than past years, in that we welcomed both domestic guests and international travelers.  Name a place in the world, and we’ve probably showcased our city to those visitors…Canada, Australia, Nigeria, Russia, Japan, U.A.E, Kuwait, Brazil, Mexico, Zimbabwe, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Romania, New Zealand… November was not a good month for California tourism.  It can typically be quieter, but this year the state experienced some of the worst fires on record.  This included the devastating Paradise Fire up north

Christmas at The Grove Los Angeles

Christmas in Los Angeles has its perks. You can feel your nose, toes, and fingers. You don’t have to worry about blizzards and snow ruining any holiday plans, and there is no running out to your car to start it 15 minutes before you leave anywhere. Really the only downside is we don’t have a natural refrigerator to help keep all the drinks cool when your fridge runs out of space from all of the holiday goodies! That being said, sometimes it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas without a light dusting of snow and a slight crispness to the air. Luckily for us we have zero humidity this time of year and the evening can give you that slight chill

Christmas at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Polo Lounge

Built in 1912, The Beverly Hills Hotel is just as luxurious, glamorous, and desired as it was 107 years ago.  It was known as “the hotel between the city and the sea,” because it was almost perfectly centered between Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica.  Plus, it gave those looking for real estate in the old lima bean fields, a place to spend the night as they looked for the perfect property to build a home.  A few years later, the hotel would have famous neighbors like Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. The legendary Polo Lounge is a must for anyone staying at, or visiting the property.  A few of us just made our annual
