Celebrate Love

In the daytime, take in West Hollywood’s LGBTQ+ scene with a trip to the Rainbow Crosswalk at the intersection of Santa Monica and North San Vicente boulevards for the most Instagrammable street moment.

When you’re ready for a break from strutting down the city, get inspired at the RH West Hollywood’s rooftop park and observatory or head to the Pacific Design Center where you’ll find nearly 100 showrooms of gorgeous indoor and outdoor furniture and décor along with public art exhibits.

Have A Legendary Night On The Sunset Strip

West Hollywood is notorious for their legendary Sunset Strip hot spots and bustling nightlife. For a night you can only get in the heart of L.A., have a laugh at The Comedy Store where famous names such as Jim Carrey, Howie Mandel, and David Letterman got their start during Amateur Night. Once you’re all laughed out, head to the world-famous gay bar, The Abbey for a cocktail, some food, and show off your best dance moves. This club and its club-within-a-club, The Chapel, also host drag shows, concerts, and other events throughout the year.

Alternatively, you could opt for a night of historic rock ‘n’ roll at Whisky A Go-Go – rocking since 1964, this American discothèque is all ages, all the time, serves great food, and provides valet service. You could even catch a show at Troubadour, a venue that has been shaping music history since 1957 or at The Roxy Theatre, a legacy of music and nightlife on the Sunset Strip for over 40 years.
