Hollywood is the obvious choice for first-timers to the city, dressing to impress in the district’s hotspots.
Before you get your dancing shoes on, pop in for a drink at the Musso & Frank Grill on Hollywood Boulevard – an old haunt of Charlie Chaplin.
Downtown is one of the more up and coming areas for nightlife in the city – a complete turnaround from 10 years ago when it was business district by day and a ghost town at night.
Today it’s a honeypot for young professionals, artists and designers, and boasts numerous funky bars and nightclubs in which to dance until dawn.
For live music, you can catch some big-name performances at Downtown’s LA Live.
If you’re after something a bit more refined and cultured, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra hosts regular performances at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Opened in 2003, this unique venue, which looks like several silver music sheets thrown together, is a work of art in itself.
If live music really is your thing, enjoy it in spectacular style at the Hollywood Bowl, which hosts global acts throughout the year and never ceases to amaze with its awesome display of fireworks on the Fourth of July.
Make sure that you dine before you dance; see our eating out in Los Angeles page for foodie inspiration.
