90210 is back! Stand­bys un­veil new facelifts, while new­bies set up shop in the world’s most fa­mous ZIP code.

Rodeo Drive never re­ally left, of course, but it’s re­freshed and re­newed for fall with a slew of new­com­ers. Lux­ury/cool hand­bag sta­ple Go­yard (405 N. Rodeo Dr., Bev­erly Hills; go­yard.com) has claimed its spot on glitz/glam Rodeo with an over­size-logo’d vin­tagetrunk façade mark­ing its first stand­alone bou­tique in LA. Shop­pers no longer have to ship their pat­terned bags to Paris for cus­tom, hand-painted mono­gram­ming. The 1,400-square-foot store is slated to open in late Au­gust and will carry a lim­ited-edi­tion Monte Carlo clutch as well as a gold-col­ored Go­yar­dine can­vas tote to fête the open­ing. Down the block, what’s old is new again as Harry Win­ston (310 N. Rodeo Dr.,

Bev­erly Hills, 310-2718554; har­ry­win­ston.com) un­veils its not-so-lit­tle nip/ tuck—dou­bling in size to a ru­mored 10,000-square­foot space—later this year.

Over on buzzy Canon, trendy Grat­i­tude (419 N. Canon Dr., 424-3891850; cafe­grat­i­tude.com) has taken on BH’s steakhouse and Ital­ian main­stays as the hot spot for a health-con­scious power lunch. The ve­gan cult fa­vorite (sis­ter restau­rant to Gra­cias Madre) is pour­ing its pop­u­lar CBD cannabi­noid-spiked Sour T-iesel cock­tail, cer­tainly a new twist for the ladies who lunch! A few doors down,

in the for­mer Nic’s space, Ta­tel (453 N. Canon Dr., Bev­erly Hills; tatel­restau­rants.com) will be in­ject­ing nightlife into some­times-snooze-y 90210. The Span­ish restau­rant and lounge, with lo­ca­tions in Madrid, Mi­ami, and Ibiza, counts Pau Ga­sol, En­rique Igle­sias, and Rafael Nadal as in­vestors.

Down the street, Amer­i­can Tea Room (410 N. Canon Dr., Bev­erly Hills, 310271-7922; amer­i­can tea­room.com) re­cently re­opened its BH lo­cale to in­clude a more café-like at­mos­phere serv­ing up food, cof­fee, and of course pre­mium teas. For a more mil­len­nial ex­pe­ri­ence, check out Al­fred Tea Room’s (490 N. Bev­erly Dr., Bev­erly Hills; al­fred­cof­fee.com) lat­est In­sta-wor­thy lo­ca­tion. Or head to La Colombe (9606 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Bev­erly Hills, 310-4022821; la­colombe.com) for a shot of espresso or their fa­mous canned draft latte be­fore head­ing out for a day of shop­ping. The rapidly ex­pand­ing chain based out of Philly first touched down in nearby Cen­tury City and marks its sec­ond LA lo­ca­tion in Bev­erly Hills.

Adding to the re­vamps, Crus­tacean (9646 S. Santa Monica Blvd., Bev­erly Hills, 310-205-8990; house ofan.com/crus­taceanbh) is trans­form­ing into two sep­a­rate din­ing op­tions: On the first floor, the din­ing room will have a re­jig­gered menu, while the top floor will open un­der a sep­a­rate name—with a menu helmed by the leg­endary House of An team. Of course.

What’s Bev­erly Hills with­out a lit­tle R&R? In­dulge with AKA Bev­erly Hills’ (155 N. Cres­cent Dr., Bev­erly Hills, 310-385-1924; stayaka.com) Live It pro­gram, where guests opt for “extra-clu­sive” ex­pe­ri­ences such as pri­vate film screen­ings and wine tast­ings, as well as lux­ury ameni­ties such as Spago in-room din­ing and treat­ments at nearby Tomoko Spa. Not pam­pered enough? Head over to the glit­ter­ing new Wal­dorf As­to­ria (9850 Wil­shire Blvd., Bev­erly Hills, 310-861-1212; wal­dorf as­to­ri­abev­er­ly­hills.com), where celeb hair col­orist Tracey Cunningham (who also co-owns Meche) just opened an ul­tra­ex­clu­sive name­sake sa­lon. Equipped with only five chairs, the jewel-box space is ideal for VIP clients, as it’s only ac­ces­si­ble via pri­vate el­e­va­tor. The al­ready siz­zling WA is the per­fect place, in fact, to un­pack those Go­yard bags and check out the haute new Bev­erly Hills—in style!

“OUR FIRST MAISON [ON THE WEST COAST] IS A FULL-CIR­CLE MO­MENT FOR US! FROM THE 1920S TO THE ’70S, WE CRE­ATED EX­CLU­SIVE OR­DERS FOR STARS SUCH AS MAR­I­LYN MON­ROE, GRE­GORY PECK, AND LAU­REN BACALL.”

—JEAN-MICHEL SIGNOLES, OWNER, GO­YARD

The Hills are alive... with the sound of $$! The glit­ter­ing new Wal­dorf As­to­ria (above) is al­ready an In­dus­try haute spot, while ever-durable BH clas­sic Crus­tacean (here) is re­freshed this fall with a new ad­di­tion and up­dated menu.
