SMOKE­HOUSE RESTAU­RANT, BUR­BANK

Friday - - Travel -

This is the set­ting for the scene in which Mia dis­cov­ers Se­bas­tian’s tal­ent for the pi­ano. The fic­tional Lipton’s restau­rant – where jazz purist Se­bas­tian grudg­ingly agrees to play Christ­mas mu­sic – is in re­al­ity a ven­er­a­ble eatery long fre­quented by ac­tors, pro­duc­ers and other show­biz types. It has been on this spot, across the street from the Warner Bros stu­dio, since 1949 (4420 West Lake­side Drive, smoke­house1946.com). In the film, the ex­te­rior of Lipton’s is the You Are the Star mu­ral, which fea­tures Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Char­lie Chap­lin and oth­ers, and is on the cor­ner of Hol­ly­wood Boule­vard and Wil­cox Av­enue in Hol­ly­wood.
