Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

One of the best to enjoy? Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Cinespia offers outdoor film experiences all over Los Angeles, but one of the most popular locations is the Fairbanks Lawn at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. With October just around the corner, it is the perfect setting for a fall movie – especially any of the creepier

Trejo’s Tacos at Farmers Market L.A.

Where do the locals go in Los Angeles for great food?  It’s a question all of us at Glitterati Tours hear all the time from guests taking our private tours of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  There’s many answers to the question, but The Original Farmers Market always tops our list.  Not only is it a famous landmark (going strong since 1934), but it’s also located adjacent to the equally popular, The Grove L.A., with even more dining and shopping options.  This is actually our #1 meeting location for guests coming in from Santa Monica, Newport Beach, Long Beach, San Pedro, or other locations.  It’s perfectly centered and gives visitors plenty of parking and a great location to dine/shop before or

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.

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
