The Sunset Strip’s original hotel, Andaz West Hollywood, was central to LA’s rock ‘n’ roll explosion in the swinging ‘60s. The Rolling Stones, the Who and Led Zeppelin all reveled in its legendary bar scene. In a nod to that time, today’s hotel brings retro elements into an ultra-modern look, featuring pieces from design genius Philippe Starck. Follow in Zeppelin’s footsteps by toasting to a rockin’ time in LA at the aptly named Riot House Bar.

    Opened in 1912, the Beverly Hills Hotel has become such a pop culture icon that it’s featured in more movies than some of its famous guests. It took off when its in-house bar, the Polo Lounge and Pool Club, opened in the 1930s attracting stars like Fred Astaire and the Beatles. Now, you can reserve a room or suite at the Sunset Boulevard institution and dine or drink in that same lounge. You never know who you might rub shoulders with.
