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. Brunch in Beverly Hills on the weekends is really something special. We just had the champagne and seafood-heavy brunch at The Peninsula, and it was AMAZING. ***NOTE: The service here is

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. Opened about this same time back in 2003, it’s become an incredibly iconic building, not only in DTLA (Downtown L.A.) but all of Southern California. The LA Phil, with Gustavo Dudamel as their Music
