Local Lifestyle

Residents of West Hollywood have a very lively, city-oriented lifestyle. West Hollywood is a popular neighborhood for working professionals and young urbanites. The real estate consists largely of high-end condominiums that are suited well for these groups. The standalone homes are mostly luxury real estate with top-end amenities. Since the area has so many attractive businesses, it is a coveted home base, and the housing reflects that. It is largely new construction and renovations, with more cropping up every day. The city layout means the streets are filled with shops, cafes, dining, and coffee.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

The dining landscape in West Hollywood is fresh, trendy, and upscale. Residents can find the hottest places right in their neighborhood and always have something new to try. One such place is Ardor, an organic Jonathan Fraser restaurant with a menu that emphasizes fresh, local ingredients presented artfully. Their signature dish is an elegant dessert “pizza,” a sweet-tart with a delicate phyllo crust and toppings. For more fresh fare and a festive atmosphere, there’s Issima. You can get more than dinner at this colorful spot, as their rooftop is a popular spot to post up with cocktails for a weekend evening with friends. Pizza night is an opulent affair in West Hollywood at Pizzana, an authentic Naples pizzeria serving up pies with ingredients shipped straight from Italy.

Coffee and brunch are practically synonymous with Los Angeles, and so is Urth Caffe. Urth is a beloved local spot for morning lattes, wholesome breakfast, and sweet treats.

The shopping in West Hollywood is an abundant mix of high-end luxury and funky finds. From independent boutiques to designer favorites, the Melrose Ave Shopping District is the perfect place to wander and window shop.

Things to Do 

On Sunset Boulevard in the heart of West Hollywood, there is a concentration of historically relevant, prominent music and comedy venues. The area is well known as the neighborhood to take in dinner and drinks and then a show. The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory are two long-standing venues in the area that have hosted famous and budding comedians alike. They always have a full schedule of performers to see a beloved name or a new act.

A name you might recognize already is The Troubadour, one of the many music venues in the area where artists have taken the stage for the better part of the century. Along with many other venues like The Roxy, this venue is as much a historical landmark for music lovers as it is a contemporary haven to see your favorite band.


West Hollywood is served by the Los Angeles Unified School District.
