About West Hollywood
West Hollywood (or WeHo as its affectionately called by residents and fans alike) may be a suburb of L.A., but it feels like a distinct city in its own right. It makes sense that it is indeed an incorporated city – effusive, eclectic and creative.
West Hollywood is 9.5 miles northwest of Downtown L.A. and 12 miles north of LAX. West Hollywood is bound by the city of Beverly Hills to the west, the Hollywood Hills to the north, Hollywood to the east and the Fairfax District and Beverly Grove to its south.
Five Great Reasons to Live in West Hollywood
Out and Proud
West Hollywood is home to the largest and most visible LGBT community in the whole of California. LGBT stores, bars and clubs abound and LGBT people have shaped the culture and spirit of this city for years – and continue to do so.
Pride and No Prejudice
The annual LGBT Gay Pride is one of the biggest gay pride marches in the world and in which the entire community partakes and parties. West Hollywood also hosts its annual (and crazy!) Halloween carnival, which is said to attract a million (crazy) revelers.
Be you a vegetarian, vegan or just a primo greenie, West Hollywood has the restaurant, bistro or coffee bar to please your palate and quench your thirst. And it has a Farmer’s Market every day of the week, including in Melrose Place (Sundays), the Sunset Strip (Thursdays) and at the Grove (every day).
Rock ‘n Roll Town
West Hollywood comes alive at night! It has some of the best nightclubs and bars in all of L.A. But its true heart and soul are rock ‘n roll. Venues like Viper Room, The Roxy and Rainbow Room need no introduction – and say it all about West Hollywood’s rock scene.
Art by Design
West Hollywood’s arts and design scene is fantastic and global in reach. WeHo Art Gallery Row is a consortium of 17 art galleries, whilst the imposing Pacific Design Center (PDC) houses the biggest interior decorating and furniture design market on the West Coast.
