Evening Walking Tour Sips of Hollywood Including Street Food and Drinks
US$79.00
Overview
Drink in the history of Hollywood during this 3-hour, small-group walking tour to some of the most famous bars, hangouts and speakeasies in Los Angeles. Get an insider’s perspective on the favorite haunts of silver screen legends like Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin and the city’s mobsters, as you sip cocktails at a selection of vintage pubs, historic speakeasies and lounges. You’ll also have plenty of photo ops thanks to the striking art deco interiors and neon signage that decorates these unique watering holes. This small group Hollywood bar crawl, limited to just 12 guests, also includes cocktails and a selection of street food.
What to Expect
Discover the favorite hangouts and drinking dens of Hollywood’s old-school legends during this 3-hour, small-group walking tour. This booze-themed history tour is a great chance to learn about the legendary party culture and celebrity milieu that has characterized Hollywood’s social scene for many decades.

Start your visit in the evening at the Hollywood & Highland Center, following your guide on foot to the world famous Hollywood Boulevard. Listen as your guide share details about the iconic sidewalk stars that make up the “Walk of Fame,” hearing about the film world’s most influential writers, directors and actors. 

Then pop into a number of the renowned bars where various Hollywood stars have socialized, ate and drank over the years. Some of these hotspots of yesteryear still make an occasional cameo in films and on TV. But your guide will also reveal a number of lesser-known anecdotes, featuring the city’s rotating cast of mobsters and a hush-hush “Writer’s Room” that contribute to the unique atmosphere that persists to this day. Along the way you’ll enjoy select drink tastings, and also have a chance to sample the diverse street food found in the neighborhood. You may even spot a celebrity or two during your visit.

In addition to the bars visited on the trip, your guide will also point out iconic local buildings and the hotspots where locals hang out in the present day. It’s a great way to help avoid the tourist traps during the rest of your trip. You’ll finish your walking trip outside of the Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, a great spot to check out the property’s amazing bar and mingle with a few natives. 

Please note: Comfortable shoes for walking are recommended. All participants under 21 years of age will be served select nonalcoholic beverages instead. Children are not permitted on this tour.

Great welcome to Hollywood

Did the Sips tour yesterday and it was a great experience. Visited lots of places tucked away that you wouldn’t see without doing a tour. A great combination of bar and restaurant history, Hollywood past and present, with a really knowledgeable guide.
