Ditch the tourist traps and live it up like a lo­cal in West Hol­ly­wood.

You don’t have to lis­ten to back cat­a­logues of ’80s hair-metal bands to know that, for a pe­riod, any­one who stepped off a Grey­hound bus with as­pi­ra­tions of be­com­ing a rocker, movie star or su­per­model ended up in West Hol­ly­wood.

De­scribed as a place where rock’n’roll meets fash­ion and art merges with cul­ture, Weho is renowned for its de­signer flag­ship stores, celebrity hotspots, bizarre fit­ness stu­dios and no­to­ri­ous nightlife (hello, Sun­set Strip). And the great news is, you don’t need to cut your de­but al­bum/reel/port­fo­lio to en­joy the very best of it. Dil­vin Yasa
