City profile

low-key beaches and high-end glamour intertwine to create a unique aesthetic in the City of Angels. Step out on Rodeo drove and shop with the stars. Hit the Hollywood Hills and catch a glimpse of the ostentatious home of your favourite celebrity. Alternatively, slip back a gear and watch the surf roll in on the popular Malibu beaches. Like any celebrity-studded city, there's an abundance of stylish dining and nightlife venues, although they do often serve up a side of pretension. If this is not quite your scene, grab a burger and hang out on the beach with the surfers. There's something on the menu for every taste in LA.
