Published

on

WEST HOLLYWOOD — The lineup of culinary players set for its first-ever Eat + Drink Week has been determined by the West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board (WHTTB). This year, there is a characteristically original twist to the traditional restaurant week format with cocktail and late-night options now included.

From October 18-27, more than three dozen eateries and bars will participate in the 10-day celebration of West Hollywood’s epicurean scene, featuring special menus and pricing for those who prefer to dine and drink their way around a destination.

True to the spirit of the event, which is intended to showcase the diverse culinary offerings and mixology culture in West Hollywood, the list of participating businesses is varied and filled with spots that pride themselves on originality.

“You can get great sense of a city’s identity by exploring its restaurants and bars.” –Tom Kiely

“You can get great sense of a city’s identity by exploring its restaurants and bars – what styles of cuisine are most prevalent, what the atmosphere at locals’ favorite is like, and so on,” says Tom Kiely, president and CEO of West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board.

“In West Hollywood, people will find that our culinary landscape is akin to our culture overall: multifaceted and eclectic. There are so many innovative chefs and mixologists at work here, we are thrilled to showcase and celebrate their creativity.”

The event focuses on the variety of West Hollywood’s dining and drinking options. Acclaimed chefs’ restaurants like Viale dei Romani by Chef Casey Lane (located in La Peer Hotel) and 1 Kitchen by Chris Crary (Located in 1 Hotel) bring serious clout to dining options in West Hollywood, while the country’s first cannabis café, Lowell Café, serves farm-fresh food and cannabis on the patio.

Cozy neighborhood spots like Gracias MadreWeHo Bistro and Taste on Melrose feature farm-to-table menus of comfort food and a homey atmosphere. Upscale restaurants along the Sunset Strip like ROKU, Katana, BOA plan to showcase the finer side of West Hollywood cuisine.

For throwback Hollywood style, Ivory on Sunset and the Tower Bar and Restaurant – both set in iconic Sunset Strip hotels – bring the glam of eras past.

Also participating is the Sunset Marquis Hotel’s Bar 1200, Employees Only LA, Skybar at Mondrian LA and  LP Rooftop Bar.

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.

At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.

Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
