“Sunset Stripped”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We've all been raised on a diet of Hollywood entertainment and stars, and Sunset Strip is embedded in our minds as the place the stars congregate for entertainment. Hey, you have to go there if you go to Hollywood, thats it!

The Strip, especially at night is certyainly alive with the various clubs and bars that still hold that 1960s live entertainment and nightclub frenzy we go there to see, It's there but a little worn out and a bit grubby, but it's worth a visit .

To fly opast in a bus tour in the daytime is a waste. It's a drab street with only the Iconic place names to catch your eye. Go there on foot at night and walk amongst the crowd, feel the neon lights and experience the most limos and exotic cars you'll ever see in a one mile street, this is what you came to see,

There's a few good live shows, meals and lots of night clubs that you'll ceryainly see some of the glitteratzzi of Hollywood entering or later stumbling out of.

It's a street of pure indulgence after hours. Spend a couple of hours there, check out te Comedy Club and go back to Hollywood Boulavard where the lights are brighter and there's fun one every corner.

Remember, you need to be able to tell your friends at home yopu stood on Sunset Strip!

“Rock and Roll and film history abound”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you are a film buff you'll really like it but if, like me, you are a rock and roll fiend then by all means you must stroll the boulevard at night. Check out the Whiskey a Go Go, the Viper Room, and all the other rock clubs. I guess they are tearing down the old Tower Records building in spite of preservationists efforts to save it but hopefully they won't. You owe it to yourself to visit the Rainbow Bar & Grill where Lemmy holds court almost every night that he is in town.

“Iconic venues”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The Ox and The Loon at The House of Blues was an amazing event. To hear so many musicians from other bands playing a great tribute to Keith Moon and John Entwistle was incredible,

“One of the many hearts of Los Angeles (West Hollywood)”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

I personally live a half a block from the sunset strip. It is a place in Hollywood history..from the 60s to today. Legendary music has been played here. Bad music too. Drunken celebrity hit and runs. Overdoses. Celebrity deaths. Celebrity sightings at hip hotels, clubs and restaurants. The sides od buildings have become giant billboards advertising the usual with a heavy empahsis on the entertainment industry. Lookey loos on the weekend. Venture off strip a little. I personally love the Sunset Marquis Hotel. Nice restaurant and spa with a rock and roll heritage many of the others don't have. There's also Book Soup - an AWESOME book store. I suppose this is sort of the Times Square of LA. But made for cars and valet and in the end, it's way cooler than the Disneyfied Times Square. Despite the weekend lookey loos.

“fun, exciting, very touristy, and chock full of celeb citiings”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I always enjoy walking the strip and eating, shopping and being a lookie-loo. When the weather is nice it is great to do this after rush hour but before the car "cruising" starts.
