Whether you’re just visiting and want to see some celebs drinking martinis, or you’ve been in LA for years and aren’t one to ever turn down a build-your-own-sundae situation, the Tower Bar is a must-visit. In the heart of The Strip, Tower Bar is an old Hollywood classic where young Hollywood types still want to hang out and pretend to eat tuna tartare. The outdoor patio is a certifiable scene, so bring your best pair of sunglasses and sharpen up that side-eye, you’ve got some eavesdropping to do.

Laurel Hardware has a sleek interior hidden from the public eye, a menu chock full of things that white girls recognize, and a crowd that’s somehow even more gorgeous than its surroundings. What more could you want? For starters, fully cooked food and a waitress who will return to the table at some point.
