West Hollywood announces first ever Eat + Drink Week
The West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board (WHTTB) announced today its first-ever Eat + Drink Week will take place October 18th to October 27th, showcasing the diverse landscape of culinary offerings and creative mixology that fills the 5km square destination.
The “Eat” side of Eat + Drink Week highlights West Hollywood’s acclaimed foodie scene, which includes a dozen eateries recently recognised in the 2019 California Michelin Guide (West Hollywood Japanese restaurant Sushi Ginza Onodera was recently awarded two stars in the Michelin Guide, who recognized its “resplendent Japanese elegance”, while a Michelin Bib Gourmand was awarded to Aburiya Raku, Eveleigh and Rosaliné).
Eat + Drink Week will also showcase West Hollywood’s robust craft cocktail culture in particular, which comprises an impressive collection of hot spots that run the gamut from Old Hollywood camp and new A-List trendsetters to gritty back alley bars and swanky Boystown lounges.
West Hollywood’s bar scene remains a priority party destination for the glamourous entertainment industry and creatives, with its go-to rooftop hotspots like EP + LP, Catch L.A., Pearl’s Rooftop, and numerous hotel rooftop bars (The Andaz, Petit Ermitage, the London, numbering among the most popular). Rooftop bar Harriet’s is the latest to join the fold, perched atop sustainable hotel 1 Hotel on Sunset Strip, it boasts unparalleled panoramic views of Los Angeles, the bar is old-fashioned charm through-and-through, serving up floral, session-able, herbaceous cocktails.
“Dining and drinking in West Hollywood is an art and something to be celebrated, so it’s only natural that there would be an event dedicated to the creativity and style that is found here,” says Tom Kiely, president and CEO of West Hollywood Travel + Tourism Board. “True to our city’s spirit, chefs and mixologists in West Hollywood are pioneers in their individual specialties, and those distinct talents shine through in every dining experience.”
During Eat + Drink Week, restaurants specializing in everything from classic California farm-to-table fare to authentic omakase experiences and late-night comfort food will all feature special menus and pricing.
