Everyone knows Beverly Hills is famous for its superb shopping, iconic hotels and lavish mansions. But there’s so much more. Beyond the glitz and glamour lies a destination brimming with cultural venues, historic landmarks and unparalleled dining experiences. Whether you’re a fashion enthusiast seeking trends on Rodeo Drive, a history buff exploring Hollywood’s Golden Age or a gourmet traveler in search of renowned chefs, Beverly Hills offers something to captivate every discerning visitor.

We asked our WeGalavant Club Curators to chime in on their favourite spots. From tried-and-true favourites to newcomers on the scene, discover their top picks of some of the best bars and restaurants in and around Beverly Hills, plus where to stay when you visit.

Where to eat in and around Beverly Hills

In a place where every possible amenity is at your fingertips, it’s no surprise that Beverly Hills is filled with fabulous dining options. From unfussy cafes and specialty markets to world-class restaurants and Michelin chefs, Beverly Hills has it all. And with the sun shining most of the year, be sure to grab one of those coveted outdoor tables. 

Casual bites

Although many famous chefs call Beverly Hills home, sometimes only comfort food will do. And these laid-back picks don’t disappoint.

Need your fix of matzo ball soup or corned beef on rye? We recommends Nate & Al’s, a classic corner deli touting generational Jewish favourites. Complete with booth seating and a diner-style menu, this North Beverly Drive deli has been a staple since 1945.

The Cheese Store Beverly Hills is every cheese-lover’s dream. Not only are the countertops piled with cheeses from across the globe, but towering shelves hold every conceivable condiment to accompany your favourite wedge. There’s even a selection of wine, freshly crafted sandwiches and expertly curated cheese plates.

If you’re heading to any of the museums on Wilshire Boulevard, République Café Bakery & République Restaurant offer a combo of coffee shop and airy dining.

For that taste of home, Urth Caffe is a charming oasis on S. Beverly Drive. Set in a quaint cottage-like space with patio seating, the creative cafe is known for its breakfast – and we highly recommends the quiche!

Tried & true favorites

For those that want a more upscale menu but not the pomp and circumstance, these reliable restaurants dish up hearty fare and steadfast favorites, consistently pleasing guests with their recipes.

Il Pastaio is right in the heart of Beverly Hills. Our Club Curators rave about the fresh pasta dishes at this white-tablecloth restaurant, run by the Drago brothers.

Dishing up fresh pastas, pizzas and classic Italian mains, The Nice Guy exudes a neighbourhood feel with its dark wood finishes and banquette seating.

Set on Santa Monica Boulevard, La Dolce Vita has a modern, upscale feel and a gorgeous bar. The menu features familiar Italian recipes, presented with first-class service.

For that Old Hollywood vibe, steak-lovers can drive a bit out of the way to experience Taylor’s Steak House. This classic restaurant, founded in 1953, will take you back in time.

Special occasions

When it’s time for a splurge, there’s no food scene like Beverly Hills. Star chefs, state-of-the-kitchens and exceptional design coalesce to create some unforgettable menus.

We love Arden for a romantic evening. Dripping with flowers and all shades of pink, Arden has a rose-garden vibe and is home to a restaurant, cafe and sultry speakeasy.

There are two additional standouts that are also tried and true restaurants: Sugarfish, a sushi purist’s dream, and Avra, a celebrated venue for upscale Greek plates.

Avra brings together the gorgeous atmosphere that you’d expect for the area, along with fantastic food and drinks. If you love seafood, you even get to pick out your fish from a beautiful seafood display on ice!

And for those seeking to experience legendary Beverly Hills menus (and possible celeb sightings), reserve a table in advance at Mr. ChowThe Ivy or CUT by Wolfgang Puck.

For a sunset cocktail, these are the perfect spots to sip, savour and mingle at these lounges and bars in the Beverly Hills area.

Bar1200 is a haunt for celebs and locals, and Tuesday nights are great to gather for live piano jams.

Just 10 minutes from Beverly Hills, E.P. & L.P. offers a sprawling rooftop with sensational views of the Hollywood Hills. 

For those who want to see and be seen, Dante Beverly Hills is the perfect choice. Known for its chic decor and $10 martini happy hour, this hot spot features plush velvet seating, live piano music and gorgeous terrace views.

With live music each evening, the Bar & Lounge at Hotel Bel-Air is throwback to elegant Old Hollywood. Set within the Dorchester Collection property, the bar area emanates a masculine warmth, with rich tones and subdued lighting, perfect for people watching.

Where to stay in Beverly Hills

Last but not least… When you’re visiting LA, choosing a homebase is an important part of planning (the city is infamous for its traffic, after all). Beverly Hills is no exception, plus, some of the best places to see and be seen are its famous hotels. Whether iconic, historic gems from the roaring 20s like The Beverly Wilshire Hotel or the chic, contemporary Maybourne Beverly Hills, there’s something for everyone.  

Below, we’ve included a list to spotlight a few of our most-booked properties. When you’re ready to plan your trip, reach out to a WeGalavant Club Curator. They’ll be able to pair you with the perfect property to launch your ideal Beverly Hills getaway. 

The Beverly Wilshire Hotel

Our top-booked property in Beverly Hills is The Beverly Wilshire Hotel (a Four Seasons Preferred property). Built in the 1920s and recently renovated, the hotel epitomises timeless elegance and refined luxury. Renowned for its impeccable service and iconic facade, this hotel boasts exquisite culinary options, a Mediterranean-inspired pool and a location across from Rodeo Drive. Your WeGalavant Club Curator can even arrange being Pretty Woman for a Day, an homage to the Julia Roberts film.

One of the biggest advantages of The Beverly Wilshire Hotel is that you’re walking distance to all the shops and restaurants around Rodeo – a big advantage in a city where nothing is walkable.

WeGalavant Perks: 

  • £75 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

The Maybourne Beverly Hills

Offering a more contemporary option, The Maybourne Beverly Hills exudes European sophistication with a touch of laid-back California charm. Beautifully appointed rooms evoke a sense of refined comfort, while the on-site restaurants showcase contemporary California cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Don’t miss the rooftop pool, a sunny oasis with posh cabanas. The hotel also offers a range of bespoke experiences, from spa treatments to Rodeo Drive shopping excursions. 

Insider tip: Book the Library Suite for more space, including a guest powder room and a huge walk-in closet.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills

Set in a prime location, the Peninsula (a WeGalavant Preferred Partner) stands out as a beacon of sophistication and unparalleled service, offering an oasis of tranquility amidst the bustling energy of Beverly Hills. Bright, traditionally decorated suites and rooms are outfitted with every amenity, and marble bathrooms are a nice touch. Guests have their choice of menus at the on-site dining venues, and when it’s time to relax, there’s the chic rooftop pool and a full-service spa.

Insider tip: Splurge on a suite, and you’ll enjoy the use of a BMW during your stay.
