Points of Interest

Original Debut: In 1927, theater developer Sid Grauman set out to do no less than create the most opulent movie palace the world had ever known. America’s fascination with the Orient led him to adopt a Chinese theme, with authentic temple bells and pagodas imported from the country itself and a 90-foot-high entryway guarded by a giant hand-carved ...

Built around the 1960’s Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, the legendary ArcLight cinemas returns the glitz and glamour to the movie-going experience with 15 state-of-the-art screens, top-quality sound systems, assigned armchair-like seating with plenty of leg room, and spoken movie introductions that are occasionally given by the movie’s director....

A rotating pop-up art/fashion shop, outpost of... More

The Hotel Cafe is an anomaly along the Cahuenga Corridor cocktailing mecca: it’s a place where softly strummed guitars trump earsplitting dance beats and drinks are sipped, not pounded. Originally a coffeehouse with musical acts, it’s grown into an intimate lounge and full bar that’s a well-known launching pad for singer-songwriters (think John... More

This jewel of a restaurant in the The Redbury Hotel takes its inspiration from Cleopatra, both in cuisine (the Queen of Egypt would no doubt have loved the Middle Eastern fare) and decor (a photo of silent film actress Theda Bara as Cleopatra greets you upon entry). Come ready to share: the emphasis is on hot and cold mezzes (small plates) like... More
