Beverly Hills Restaurants

  • Great food at a reasonable price

    While my bike was being worked on in Sherman Oaks, we decided to head over to Beverly Hills for a bite of lunch. Well LJ wanted to to eat a a restaurant owned by Lisa Vanderpump-Todd & Ken Todd (of the Housewives of Beverly Hills fame).

    This was the first time I ate at a restaurant in Beverly Hills. Ain't I swanky? :)The inside of the restuarant is decorated with modern furniture and classical indian pieces. There's a few cool plasma TVs which play sports and other programs. It was very quiet and relaxed inside. We were there on a Tuesday night, and the place was not packed. The...

  • Walking only street

    On this walking only street you'll find some coffees I can recommend. We also saw a Porsche super store and other brand name shops.

The prices are not...

Beverly Hills Nightlife

  • Stonerose Lounge @ Sofitel Hotel

    Here is the deal...this place is good for a low key night where some friends can get together for some drinks and actually hear each other speak. It has never been over the top, action packed lounge (maybe back in the day it was) but has always been steady and a place that radiates a cool LA vibe. You definitely have to dress pretty classy if you...

  • Dancing in Beverly Hills

    I wish I had some photos of this place. It was the 2nd club I went to in Southern California...

    Beverly Hills doesn't have a "nightlife" scene (for clubs you have to venture to Hollywood or West Hollywood, a couple miles over)The Backstage Cafe is the most lively, happening spot in BH after 10pm. Live performances happen on occasion, both by booked talent and the random rocker hangin out and jammin... and the menu is great bar-type food. Open...

Beverly Hills Transportation

  • Take a Charming Tour from Rodeo

    Any city that has a little trolley is just so cute to me. Although it is super typical "touristy", one should take a trolley ride at least once. If not in San Francisco, why not in this beautiful wonderland. Duration of tour lasts approx. 45 min. On board, a B.H. city ambassador gives narration of Bev history, including key landmarks, and also...

Beverly Hills Tourist Traps

    Tour Buses, ugh! Why does anyone ride one? It is so much more interesting to check things out on your own whether it's walking or renting your own car.

Anyway, it seem some of the more popular cities throughout the world has some type...

Beverly Hills What to Pack

  • icunme's Profile Photo

    by icunme Written Apr 20, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The style of Beverly Hills is casually elegant. Jeans and sportswear are the general rule by day. In the evening, dressier attire is more appropriate in some hotels, and some restaurants prefer jackets and ties for men. During fall and winter in particular, visitors will find dressing in layers, including sweaters or light jackets, the most comfortable strategy at night. Of course, if you're going to the Academy Awards - take your tux..........
