It is a futuristic place where people are creating their future. It has a full nightlife and every building there is a design experiment. More than 40% of its population identifies within the LGBT+ spectrum, so no wonder that this area is full of gay venues of different kinds. Santa Monica Boulevard, a part of the legendary Route 66, is a center of gay life in West Hollywood. It’s filled with lively Russian bars and restaurants at one end, chic cocktails and delectable gastronomy in the Midtown, and ends in a so-called “Boy’s Town” heavy with pulsating dancefloors, drag queens and gogo boys. Fans of the old Hollywood glamour should explore Sunset Strip. Visited by numerous celebrities, the 1.6 mile stretch of Sunset Boulevard is still home to long-running venues such as the Roxy and Whisky A Go Go. If you are a fan of fashion, don’t miss the Design District - an eclectic mix of local boutiques and high-end fashion flagships from the likes of Stella McCartney, Glossier and Nike, peppered with independent art galleries and furniture showrooms.
