Mel’s Drive-In-Various Locations

What: Mel’s Drive-In

Where: Various Locations

For: All Ages

Mel’s Drive-In is a 50’s-themed diner on the Sunset Strip that we found while searching for somewhere to eat in the West Hollywood area.  Mel’s Diner was the restaurant what was featured in the film American Graffitti, and since then, the diner has expanded to include multiple locations in the Southern California area.

The Diner

When you arrive at the West Hollywood location, you pull up to park around one of the last googie buildings in Los Angeles.  This is the only location that is open 24-hours-a-day 7-days-a-week.  Mel’s is continuously shows in TV spots, commercials and movies.  The iconic drive-in, although not in use, can be seen in the parking stalls and outer set-up of the diner.

The vibe of Mel’s can be seen by the structure of the building.  Guests are greeted with a neon jukebox upon walking in.  There are souvenirs available for sale at the cashier’s.  We decided to sit at the bar of the diner.  The wait staff were all uniformed in 50’s-themed attire.  The menu was so long that we had a hard time deciding what to order, but the food came out quickly.  At each of the seating areas was a small table jukebox that allows patrons to pick which song they would like to hear in the restaurant.

The Food

The food was ended up being better than expected.  Ethan ordered a burger, and I ordered eggs benedict.  Both entrees tasted great, and we couldn’t help but order a chocolate malt at the end of our meal.  The malt came in a classic shake-glass with the left overs offered to us in a metal cup.  We inhaled everything that was put in front of us, and we left with our stomachs full.

The Crowd

The crowd at Mel’s consisted of a large mix of people.  There were a lot of guests taking pictures of the diner both inside and outside.  Keep in mind that guests can pay by walking up to the cashier after the meal.  There was also no line when we arrived, but I can imagine that the diner would be busier particularly on weekends in the evening.

Cost

Mel’s was very affordable.  For two entrees, two drinks and dessert we ended up paying $50.  The cost was definitely worth the experience of visiting this iconic Hollywood landmark.

Mystery Pier Books-West Hollywood

Mystery Pier Books-West Hollywood

What: Mystery Pier Books

All First Edition and Autographed Novels for Private Collections.

Where: West Hollywood

For: All Ages

While exploring West Hollywood on foot, we passed a small entryway that led to a long corridor behind the storefronts.  At the end of the pathway was a small house that was converted into a store.  The sign said ‘Mystery Pier Books’, and we soon found out that it’s one of the most famous independently-owned bookstores in the world.

Literally thousands of books in the store.

The Bookstore

Mystery Pier Books is owned by a father and son team, and it prides itself in selling first-edition and limited-edition books.  Almost all the books are signed by the authors.  One of my favorite was a copy of Jurassic Park that was signed by all the actors in the film, Stephen Spielberg and Stephen King.  Mystery Pier Books has a partnership with many of the higher-ups in the entertainment industry.  With these connections, they can make specially-bound copies of movie scripts with the actors autographs inside.

The corridor that you walk down to get to the store.

There are literally thousands of books crammed into this cramped-but-cozy store.  All of them are kept in near mint condition.  One of my favorite scripts were La La Land, Shape of Water and The Green Mile.  Keep in mind that you can see everything in the store, but you do have to ask the owners to take it down and show it to you.

Some of the celebrities that buy from Mystery Pier.

The Crowd

There were only two other people who walked in briefly when we were in the store.  We spent about half an hour in the store looking at all types of books, scripts and pictures.  We thoroughly enjoyed speaking to the owner, Harvey Jason.  He prided himself by name dropping a list of all the celebrities that have been in the book store to buy from him (apparently Johnny Depp enjoys the store so much that he has a shirt that he often wears during his concerts).  If you are of a particular ‘A-List’ status, the store does close down for private appointments.  Please refer to the website for days and hours of operation.

La La Land Script Signed by Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling.

Cost

I couldn’t leave the shop emptyhanded.  Since everything was so expensive (it is a store for private collectors, after all), I opted for a black tote bag with the store’s logo on the front.  That ended up costing $25!  I was very happy that I left with a souvenir from the shop.  Harvey told me that books can cost from as little as $50 to as much as $100,000 (although you won’t see the expensive ones on the shelves…those are reserved for the special vault in the back).

My favorite movie, The Green Mile script signed by writer/director Frank Darabont.

The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker-West Hollywood

The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker-West Hollywood

What: The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker

Where: West Hollywood

For: All Ages

I saw this restaurant on Instagram and told myself that I would have to eat here whenever we were in West Hollywood.  Last weekend, Ethan and I got that chance.  The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker (or BBCM) serves modern Californian cuisines with a European Twist.  They have the most amazing craft cocktails and specialty coffee beverages that you will ever see.

The Restaurant

BBCM is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner daily.  Although we didn’t eat at the restaurant, the food that we saw was very aesthetically pleasing.  Guests ordered beautiful food for brunch, including sandwiches, avocado toast and salads.  When we were sitting at the bar, there was a gorgeous coffee machine at the checkout stand of BBCM.

The Drinks

The specialty cocktails are especially great at BBCM.  The guests next to us ordered a triple flight of mimosas in three different flavors.  The Bloody Mary looked spicy and strong (although it was odd that a waiter was in the back pouring out three of the guests’ drinks into a pitcher and filling the now half-full drinks with Bloody Mary mix instead of alcohol.  Ethan ordered a craft cocktail from the menu, and it was the perfect refreshment to a hot day.

Now, let’s talk coffee!  Most of the coffee came out in mason jars.  The real star of the show were the cappuccinos.  The cappuccino that I ordered came out in about fifteen minutes with the most beautiful artwork I’ve ever seen in coffee.  It was so gorgeous that I didn’t want to drink it.  Although I was pleased with the look of the drink, it tasted very good as well.

The Crowd

There were so many people waiting at the front of the restaurant when we arrived.  Patrons can sit at the bar if they don’t want to wait (understand that the bar seating is highly coveted).  Guests can make reservations online, as there is always a wait for a booth or table.

Ethan said that this was the Instagram models’ paradise.  Not only is the food Instagram-worthy, but the crowd is dressed in new Hollywood glamour.  There is also a new store that recently opened at USC village.  Please check their website for hours of operation.

Cost

The bill came in at $24 for one cocktail and the cappuccino.  Although it’s expensive, I definitely think that it was worth the price for the experience and the beautiful coffee that I received.  I would recommend coming here for the pure experience.

Book Soup-Hollywood

Book Soup-Hollywood

What: Book Soup

Where: Hollywood

For: All Ages

This morning Ethan and I had the opportunity to walk around West Hollywood after brunch.  We came upon Book Soup, a small bookstore with floor-to-ceiling books and gifts.  We spent about half an hour in here, and we definitely will to come back to see the new books that come in, as the inventory changes seasonally.

The Bookstore

Book Soup is a small independent book store on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood that’s been open since 1975.  From the outside, it looks like a simple magazine stand.  However, when you venture inside, you’re greeted with a beautiful quaint bookstore.

Not all genres of fiction are represented.  The store specializes in art, film, photography, music and literary fiction (but believe me, this still means a ton of books).  There were tables with top book picks from the staff, and authors even come in for readings often.  This would be a great place to pick up a coffee table book for our home.

The bookstore is very small and cute.  They not only sell books, but there are also autographed editions of popular reads.  Book Soup also sells cards, gifts, vinyl records and cute knick-knacks.  I was able to purchase a book for the kids to read along with an adorable book-themed matchbox.  The entire time I was there I felt like I was in a cozy and hidden Hollywood spot.

The employees are kind and always made themselves available to help.  I overheard them suggesting books to other patrons that were similar to their preferences.  Make sure to check the website for hours of operation.  I will be sure to come back to the store to check out their constantly evolving inventory in a few months.

The Crowd

Everyone in Book Soup were kind and respectful.  It was very quiet, and it felt like we were exploring one of Hollywood’s hidden gems.  It was not crowded at all, and we were able to explore the store freely.  There is metered parking on the street in front of the store.

Cost

The cost of the book that we bought was very reasonable.  I know that I would’ve paid 30% more at a chain store such as Barnes and Noble.  I also saw that the pricing for the gifts was reasonable as well.  I suggest that anyone in the area should take a stop into Book Soup.

The Lighthouse Cafe-South Bay

The Lighthouse Cafe-South Bay

What: The Lighthouse Cafe

LLL d 13 _2644.NEF

Where: South Bay

For: Ages 21+

The Lighthouse Café is Ethan and my go-to place if we want to eat and enjoy a live band.  Another plus is that it was one of the sets for the movie La La Land.  The vibe is always vibrant when you walk into the café.  The security, hostesses and servers are personable and nice.  It’s a great place to go when you want to have a casual night in the South Bay.

The Restaurant

The restaurant is open until 1:00am every night of the week, which makes this bar the place to go if you want a late-night meal.  The café is open for special events as well (please check the website).  Unfortunately, the aesthetics of the food that comes out is definitely lacking and makes the trays look very sad.  That being said, the food is actually pretty good, and it’s a great environment to eat some American food in.

La La Land

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone filmed many scenes over four days at The Lighthouse Café.   If you go outside, you can witness an iconic scene with the two characters standing next to each other in front of a neon sign advertising the Café.  I loved that the movie included jazz and the special lighthouse stained glass in the background.  An interesting thing is that the Lighthouse still has one of the clocks from the movie in the restaurant that (apparently) the director has been trying to get back. Another interesting tidbit is that the Hermosa Beach chamber teamed up with Hollywood two years ago to transform the Hermosa Beach Pier into a La La Land-themed pier.  They played jazz music and allowed guests to take Instagram-worty pictures on the pier.

The Bar

The Lighthouse Café is the best place to go if you’re interested in listening to Jazz in Hermosa Beach. Security checks ID after 9:30pm and gives you a stamp for in-and-out privileges.  There is sometimes a cover charge of $5 to $10 per guest depending on which live band is playing that night.  There is a small dance floor in the middle of the tables.  Tables and booths for dining line the outside area of the bar and there are many spaces to sit at the bar tables if you’re interested in getting up close and personal with the bartenders.

The Crowd

The age range for the guests varies.  Many times, groups meet here to celebrate birthdays.  A great thing is that the bands generally come into the crowd during breaks and dance with the patrons.

Cost

The Lighthouse Café is very affordable.  Drinks range from $6-$15 each.  Happy hour is available daily (please check the website for more information).  Dinner rang in at about $12 to $16 per plate, which is a steal in Hermosa Beach.  We will continually come back to The Lighthouse Café for dinner, drinks and dancing.

Madame Tussauds-Hollywood

Madame Tussauds-Hollywood

What: Madame Tussauds

Ready to go with Cameron Diaz.

Where: Hollywood

For: All Ages

Ethan and I visited Madame Tussauds in Hollywood to see the realistic celebrity wax figures.  Since Madame Tussaud opened her first wax museum over 200 years ago, her museums have been iconic for the most realistic wax figures of celebrities in existence.

Smiling with the Legend Betty White.

The Museum

To get to Madame Tussauds, you can park in the structure on Hollywood and Highland (remember to get validation).  Grauman’s Chinese Theater and the celebrity hand and footprints are located right outside the entrance of the museum.

Laughing it up with Conan O’Brien.

Upon entering the museum, guests are instructed that they can take as many pictures and videos as you want.  You are allowed to touch the figures, but you are not allowed to touch the figures’ faces.  There are prop stations in different rooms that let you dress up for photo opportunities.  There are also seating and standing areas to help you get the best Instagram-worthy shot.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates with Tom Hanks.

There are various themed rooms with superb wax characters.  The rooms contain celebrities corresponding to the themes, including: Spirit of Hollywood, Modern Classics, Making Movies, Pop Icons, A-List Party and Country Western.  What was surprising to Ethan and me was how short some of the celebrities were!

Fighting Crime with Spiderman.

There is a Virtual Room experience (ages 12+) where you can play video games with your friends to accomplish missions with VR for an additional price.  You can play with two, three or four people.  A Marvel Superhero’s -D experience allows for you to immerse yourself into the Marvel Universe.  At the Behind the Scenes area you can see exactly how the wax figures are made and even take home a wax mold of your hands (for an additional cost).

Honorary T-Bird with John Travolta.

The Crowd

The crowd was made of mostly older kids and adults.  We were able to walk straight into the museum and take pictures with the figures without an issue.  It took about an hour for us to go through the entire museum, but I would anticipate that if each figure and plaque was looked at then it would take an hour and a half to two hours to make your way through the entire museum.

Lining up putts with Tiger Woods.

Cost

You can save 35% by purchasing tickets online or on Groupon.  For talk-up tickets, pricing is $30.95 for standard admission (ages 13+).  Check Madame Tussauds website for pricing for additional activities and hours of operation.

Skating with Tony Hawk.

Bonus picture: Me fighting bad guys with Bruce Lee.  Note the nun chucks, flying kick and angry face.

Boulevard3-Hollywood

Boulevard3-Hollywood

What: Boulevard3-Hollywood

Main Ballroom

Where: Hollywood

For: Ages 21+

When Ethan and I went to Hollywood for our staycation, we decided to end our night dancing at Boulevard3.  A random note about the club is that Ethan and I have been binge watching Shameless on Netflix, and Fiona’s nightclub in Season 2 is filmed at Boulevard3!

The Club

Boulevard3 was built on the site of the former Hollywood Athletic Club.  When you walk into the outdoor space after paying your entrance fee, you are greeted with posh décor and modern furniture.  There is a bar outside with seating Garden Cabanas that offer bottle service.  A large fireplace is in the center of the outdoor Promenade.  A large pool spans the length of the garden cabanas. When you enter the building, there is another fireplace with a large seating area to take a rest from all the dancing.

Garden Cabana

 In the Ballroom, everything is white and backlit in neon colors, which makes the club seem classy and clean.  There is a huge LED lighting system inside that backs the main bar and is coordinated with the music.  The DJ booth is opposite of the main bar, and table service booths are offered on the dance floor, Mezzanine level and on the second floor Balcony level.  A Library Bar is available for rental and private parties.  Check Boulevard3’s website for information on performances by famous DJs and other shows.  Music is an eclectic mix of hip hop, top 40 and house.

Mezzanine

The Crowd

The club is only open on Friday and Saturdays.  Depending on the day, time and event, there can be fairly long lines. The website lists the dress code as “upscale trendy”, and when we went we saw that almost everyone was in nice cocktail attire.  One weird thing about the bartenders were that they were drinking with the patrons which made them very distracted.  We waited for a while for our drinks to be made and our tab to be closed out.  One time, we were looking for our bartender and found that he was dancing on top of the bar spitting alcohol onto napkins he lit on fire (hence creating “fire balls”).  I thought it was not very professional for the amount of money that we were paying to be in the club.

Balcony

Cost

We paid a $20 cover charge per person and drinks were about $15 each.  Shots cost $25 for two people.  If you decide to pay the premium for bottle service, then the cover charge is waived.

Escape Hotel-Hollywood

Escape Hotel-Hollywood

What: Escape Hotel

Where: Hollywood

For: Ages 13+

Ethan and I had the pleasure of going to the Escape Hotel for our first escape room experience. It was so fun and detailed that we plan on coming back to try out the other themed rooms.

The Hotel

The lobby and décor of this ‘hotel’ is extravagant.  There is ample seating space in the lobby for patrons.  No food, drink or electronics are allowed in any of the escape rooms, so small lockers are provided.  You can take the locker key into the room with you.  The front desk checks you in quickly with a signed waiver and iPad card transaction.  Photos are only allowed in the lobby where there is a provided photo booth with props.  Make sure to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to your game start time.

The Rooms

Each room has a different theme, which includes Circus, Cocaine, Slaughter, Witchcraft, Zombie, Lost Temple-Cursed Crypt, Daycare, Agent and Espionage.  Pirate and Heist themed rooms are coming soon.  Each area has its own level of difficulty.  Some rooms require team work and either contain linear or non-linear story lines.  Keep in mind that a few rooms are adult-themed and each experience is one hour long.

The Experience

We tried out the Espionage escape room and went in as two players.  We were blindfolded and then walked separately to prison cells that we were locked in.  When we were able to remove our blindfolds, a timer started ticking down from 60 minutes.  We were left with a two-way walkie talkie that we used to communicate with the front desk to ask for clues or clarification for anything.  There are cameras in the room that stream to the front desk so that they can see what point you are at in the game.  If your team is moving too slowly then they will use the walkie talkie to give you a clue.  Many of the rooms require team work.  If there are too many small teams waiting in the lobby then you might be teamed up with another small group.  We were able to use keys, cell phones, Morse code, locations, coordinates, etc. to solve the room.  It was a very fun experience as a couple that taught us how well we work together.

The Crowd

I would recommend this for ages 13 and up since some of the themes are more adult.  Make sure that you have your own room with a group unless you are ok being teamed up with some random people.  It was not crowded when we went, and I would love to go again with a group of friends.

Cost

We spent a total of $84 for a one hour escape room experience for two people.  Groupons and Living Social deals are sometimes offered as a discount.  The website shows that pricing ranges from $39 to $49 per person.

The Magic Castle-Hollywood

Magic Castle-Hollywood

What: Magic Castle

Where: Hollywood

For: Ages 21+ at Night/All Ages for Weekend Brunch

The Magic Castle is one of the most exclusive magic clubs in the world, requiring membership or sponsorship to enter.  We were fortunate to be invited for weekend brunch, which I attended with my parents and extended family members.

The Castle

The Magic Castle is perched atop a hill at the end of a winding driveway in Hollywood.  Keep traffic in mind, as the Magic Castle is close to the Hollywood Bowl and Dolby Theater.  It is recommended to check the schedule for both venues to ensure you leave with enough time to park and walk into the Castle.  After entering the castle, you can view a variety of magic themed odds and ends.  Lighting is dark with deep red velvet curtains lining the windows and doorways.  A full bar is offered with elegant décor and fixtures.  In addition, classes are offered to any interested novice to advanced magicians.  There is a gift shop to explore for a souvenir of your trip to the Magic Castle.  Showtime flyers are handed to guests upon arrival.

Reservations for brunch and dinner are required, and it is suggested to call in at least one week in advance.  Brunch was served buffet-style in a beautiful Victorian-style ballroom.  Keep in mind that pictures are not allowed in the castle, ballroom, or any of the show areas.

My family on our visit to the Magic Castle.

The Show

The Close-Up Gallery is an intimate venue with comfortable lounge-like seating that consists of magic performed right under patrons’ noses.  This was my favorite venue, as there were tricks performed that I have never seen before.  Skylar had a hard time enjoying it since she couldn’t understand the tricks.  Lines fill up quickly for the room, and I would suggest getting there early to ensure entrance to the show.

The Parlor of Predestination is a medium-sized venue that has magic much like you would see at a county fair or circus.  Magicians used metal rings, ropes, cups, and animals to perform their tricks.  When we went there was a children’s magician that fell short of expectations.  Unfortunately the kids were bored and restless for the brunch time show.

The Palace of Mystery is the largest venue provided.  The show was extravagant and amazing.  Kids and adults were captivated watching the magician and tricks performed.

Smaller show areas also include the W.C. Field Bar and the Peller Theatre which we were not able to experience.

The Crowd

If joining for brunch or dinner (21+), you must have a guest card or sponsor card and bring valid photo identification.  There is a very specific page-long dress code that guests must adhere to (listed on the website) or risk being turned away at the door.

Cost

Guest valet charges are $15 per car with door charges ranging from $25 to $35 per person depending on the date and time guests are attending.  Dining charges are an extra $40-$60 per person with drinks at an additional cost.

Good Times at Davey Wayne’s-Hollywood

Good Times at Davey Wayne’s-Hollywood

What: Good Times at Davey Wayne’s

Where: Hollywood

For: Ages 21+

We found out about this bar after watching Buzzfeed’s sponsored show Worth It!, and I was dying to check it out after finding out that after you walk through an refrigerator that you can order an Old Fashioned on tap in this 70’s themed bar.

The refrigerator entrance into the bar.

The Theme

This bar is located in a residential part of Hollywood, and Ethan and I would have walked past it if we didn’t have the location pulled up on our phone.  With this 70’s themed gem, you turn a corner of a dead-end street and find a small gate to your left that you walk into.  In the building, there is a retro vending machine on the right that sells cigarettes.  When you move straight, there’s an old refrigerator that you open to walk up steps into the actual bar.

There is so much to look at in this bar, from the collection of 70’s beer cans to the old-timey photos hanging on the walls.  Everything from the furniture to the décor is themed correctly.  Even the restrooms have wallpaper from the decade in each stall.

The Inside

There is a large inside bar that serves Old Fashions on tap for $7 at happy hour.  Also inside is a shuffleboard table that we had the pleasure of playing a few games on.  The bartenders were very attentive, and the décor was on point.  The bathrooms are hidden behind frames on the wall, and the main lounge area includes a DJ booth with ample seating for patrons.

The Outside

Both times that we came here, the outside was crowded.  At certain times, food is served BBQ style and there is a bar to serve the crowd that doesn’t want to go inside.  Ashtrays are provided for smokers, and there is a lounge area complete with two hanging chairs for people to sit and chat.  Small lights line the top of the outside area, which provide a pleasant glow at night.

The Crowd

We came to Good Times at Davey Wayne’s first on a Sunday afternoon and then again on a Saturday evening.  Both times there was no wait at the door and we were waived in by the bouncer after he checked our IDs.  The crowd is a mix of hipster and millennials.  The music is modern with drinks flowing at all times.  Make sure to check the hours of operation online, as this bar only operates in the late afternoon and evening.

Ethan at the outside portion of the bar.

Cost

We felt as if we got the best value for our money here.  Two specialty cocktails rang in at $24, but that was the priciest thing on the menu.  Happy hour prices can give you a drink for under $10.  Both times, we left less than $60 out of pocket.
