Atmosphere and glamour in a busy part of the city.
A stroll along Sunset Boulevard.
In the beginning, in the roaring ‘20s, Sunset Boulevard was a small dirt road that linked the flourishing Hollywood studios with the houses of the major stars in the world of cinema, located at the top of the hill. The coolest, and at the same time most historic, area is Sunset Strip, always lively and bustling. It stretches for just over two kilometres and was for years frequented by gamblers and smugglers, regulars at famous clubs such as Ciro’s or Mocambo (where Harry Cohen allegedly rechristened Margarita Cansino as Rita Hayworth). Located between Crescent Heights and Doheny Drive, this street still has the most nightclubs, shops, bars, cafés and hotels in Los Angeles. One of its most famous bars is Whisky A Go Go (www.whiskyagogo.com), where the legendary band The Doors made their debut several decades ago. You should also walk along Sunset Plaza, an ideal space to survey the enormous billboards that have long announced the latest releases from the main Hollywood producers.
