Even though West Hollywood is less than three miles wide, the sheer volume of hotels, restaurants and clubs packed onto its streets makes it a world-class entertainment and nightlife destination.

Historic music venues like The Troubadour, Roxy Theatre and Whiskey a Go Go line the famous Sunset Strip and they’re all within walking distance of the vibrant bar scene on Santa Monica Blvd.

Popular among a hip, young and LGBTQ-friendly crowd, West Hollywood mixes new spots with long-established favorites for an atmosphere that’s fresh and continually evolving. The bottom half of WeHo is populated with bars and lounges like The Abbey and Harlowe. A few blocks north, there's the Sunset Strip with entertainment venues like The Troubadour, Viper Room, Comedy Store and Roxy Theatre.

West Hollywood is also home to trendy hotel nightclubs, including Skybar at the Mondrian and The Standard’s rooftop.
