Sunset Strip

'Sinful drag', 'Naughty nights at Sunset', 'The adult playground', and 'Hollywood’s soul' have all been names bestowed upon West Hollywood’s world-famous Sunset Strip, but by far the most recognizable reference is simply 'The Strip.'
From old-school Hollywood glam to present-day chic, The Strip has been home to famous names; TV and big-screen hits; and infinite 'Hollywood Dreams.'

Hedonistic in its approach, The Strip has always been devoted to the pursuit of supreme pleasure, indulgent taste, ultimate glamour and high drama. From in-the-flesh celebrities getting tagged at the famous Sunset Strip Tattoo parlor to "go-go" dancing at the Whiskey and the rise and fall of many a star, The Strip has truly seen it all.

Visitors and Angelenos alike will step into West Hollywood and dance in the footsteps of Hollywood legends like Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Sr.

From its Prohibition roots, The Strip (Crescent Heights to Doheny) paid homage to a free-spirited, no-holds-barred lifestyle complete with casinos, high-roller supper clubs and fancy cars. Back in the day, if you weren’t a star before entering one of the historical elite three night clubs - The Trocadero, Mocambo or Ciro’s, The Strip ensured stardom by the time you left. Take a walk (multimedia tour) on the wild side. Experience The Strip how you like it, alive and pumping with L.A.’s hottest night clubs, art deco hotels, 24-hour hip eateries, world-famous celebrity hangouts, and jumbo-size billboards ('vanity boards') that depict the latest in fashion, beauty and entertainment.

Refer to it as you wish, but when in Southern California never return home without cruising The Strip. Your friends will never forgive you.
