Things to Do in Westwood

View Map

When most people think of Westwood, UCLA immediately comes to mind. In fact, the school and its environs offer not only a world-renowned education, but also noteworthy attractions to the public as well.

The Hammer Museum on campus features art from around the country, while the Geffen Playhouse hosts concerts and Tony-award winning plays.

Within walking distance of the UCLA campus is Westwood Village, a gathering spot for students and professionals. The village is a small community of boutiques and some of LA’s best restaurants like 800 Degrees Kitchen and Fundamental LA.

With an equally vibrant nightlife, the neighborhood is a hub for A-list parties, from the popular lounges at the W Hotel to the Regency Theater’s red carpet movie premieres.
