Hollywood, Los Angeles

Hollywood’s reputation as the mecca of glitz and glam is frankly deceitful and unfortunately it is no longer the place it once was. ‘Gritty’ and ‘edgy’ work for cities like Berlin and Prague, but Hollywood is downright filthy (until you get closer to the hills and Los Feliz). With that said, it still has some cool old haunts and a touch of class dotted here and there in between the tourist gift shops, and I have tried my hardest to point you in their direction.
