Award Season The West Hollywood Way

LONDON, 2023-Feb-21 — /Travel PR News/ — Award season in LA rolls around each January along with a flurry of talent, worldwide stars and a spotlight on iconic venues. Beginning with the Golden Globes and closing with the Oscars, LA comes alive with pre-parties, shows, after-parties and after-after-parties. West Hollywood, WeHo to the locals, is the city’s cultural heart, and the mecca in which all of the prepping, priming and partying takes place.

First up is the Golden Globes Awards. The 80th edition will take place tomorrow, the 11th  January, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Ahead of the event celebrating the best in American TV and Film, the official pre-party happened on Sunday (8 January) at the sleek seafood restaurant Catch LA on West Hollywood’s Melrose Avenue. Afterwards, a spot such as Harriet’s atop luxury sustainable 1 West Hollywood –  recently used for the after-party to the AMAs – was sure to have hosted a few famous faces with its skyline views and resident DJs.

Next month on the 6th  February, the 65th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will take place downtown at the Arena. Between awards, West Hollywood’s districts are full of life from the high-end shopping streets to bustling city rooftops, and getting red carpet ready is easy with the vast amount of gyms, shops, spas and treatments on offer. Try out the first and only urban sweat lodge,  Shapehouse, where “ancient tradition and modern wellness meet to burn calories, deepen sleep, improve skin, lift moods and change lives.”  For those looking to live like a celebrity, gyms such as DOGPOUND LA and Rumble Boxing regularly welcome celebrities for custom training and last-minute nerves. 

The ultimate award show comes on the 12th March as the 95th Academy Awards takes place at the historic Dolby Theatre. Celebratory dinners and drinks in the days surrounding the highly esteemed show are sure to be had by stars, crews and fans alike. From bright and bustling eateries to low-lit after-dark haunts, there is something for everyone when it comes to the West Hollywood dining scene. Michelin has recognised 12 must-try spots in WeHo, including the two-starred Sushi Ginza and the Michelin-plated, all-vegan Gracias Madre. Other famous spots with rave reviews include all-American Craigs and Merois at the Pendry with Wolfgang Puck cuisine.

Whether you’re in the neighbourhood for the awards or passing through at another time, the vibrant city with its pioneering qualities is sure to give you a taste of Hollywood glamour.
