Los Angeles – A day (and night) in West Hollywood

Nestled between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, West Hollywood (or WeHo, as it has come to be known) is one of the most dynamic parts of the region and home to some of the area’s best art galleries, restaurants, clubs, shops and beloved landmarks (think Sunset Strip).

Fairfax Ave isn’t a bad place to start off your adventures in WeHo with The Grove, Farmers Market and CBS studios all within walking distance of one another. Heck, there’s even a trendy hotel across the road!

Stay

Farmer’s Daughter Hotel

115 S. Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles | 323.937.3930

This ex-motel turned country chic boutique hotel is centrally located in West Hollywood, a mere stone’s throw away from The Farmer’s Market, The Grove shopping mall and CBS studios.

What Jack likes:

–       Location location location!

–       The chic vibe and gorgeous interior of its restaurant, TART

–       Delicious freshly-baked chocolate-chip cookies and ice cold lemonade placed at the reception for tea everyday

–       Complimentary wireless internet

Note: Prices are rather steep for what is essentially a glammed-up motel but one’s gotta pay the price to be special! Recommended for the funky at heart, not for the value-seekers.

If you are booking through an Internet deal, take note that breakfast ($14/ person) and valet parking ($18/night) may not be included in the rate, excluding tax.

Eat:

If you are staying at the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel and breakfast isn’t included in the hotel rate, you’ll be pleased that The Farmer’s Market is a short stroll across the road where food is aplenty.

The French Crepe Co.

Try any of their indulgent crepes (nutella and banana) or gorgeous waffles with whipped butter and cream.

Shop:

Work off the calories from breakfast at The Grove with the likes of Abercrombie and Fitch, the Apple store, Barnes and Nobles and UGGs by Jimmy Choo. Oh, and if you’re lucky, you might just get to watch Mario Lopez filming on the set for Extra with a celebrity guest.

Duck in to The Cheesecake Factory when you’re ready for afternoon tea – don’t let its name fool you; this place is an institution with over 50 legendary cheesecakes and specialty desserts to choose from and a full menu to boot. Even the doorman looks like a rock star!

Watch:

Tired from shopping? Catch the latest blockbuster movie at Pacific Theatres and rest your weary feet.

Work out:

SPINNING (Updog Spin + Yoga)

8599 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood | 310.360.7200

Spinning is HOT HOT HOT in LA and one can really be spoilt for choice when it comes to spin classes. After reading Tevia Celli-Recht’s online instructor profile, I picked Updog Spin + Yoga.

The verdict: I loved it. Tevia’s personal connection with the members, fantastic music and dedication to the program has garnered her a loyal fan base, 1 more included.

Note: Check the schedule online and call in early to reserve a bike as Tevia’s classes can get booked up quickly.

    will try to get the hang of it!

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
